Crawl Space Cleaning
Have you been noticing little unwelcome guests in your home—rodent intruders? Has your air quality seemed a bit off lately? You may be experiencing some common crawl space problems.
Nestled between the ground and your floor, it’s a part of your home that often goes overlooked. It’s not a basement, and it’s usually unfinished. It does have insulation, but not much else. No one really goes in there, besides maybe poking through for a crawl space repair or maintenance work.
That’s what makes it the perfect place for rats and other vermin to make themselves at home. It’s also why crawl space cleaning is extremely important.
Attic Construction is your first and best option for maintaining your home’s crawl spaces.

Why Does Crawl Space Clean Up Matter?
Because you and your family’s health matters.
For a relatively small and forgotten area, crawl spaces have a huge impact on your home. You may not access it that often, but other vermin and critters do. Because your home’s crawl space can make the perfect home for these unwanted guests, oftentimes feces and urine are left behind to contaminate your crawl space insulation. And if you have a vented crawl space, it can lead to unwanted odors and airborne toxins entering your home.
Pests leave behind rodent feces and may create a mess of dirt and debris that can be dangerous for you and your family.
As much as 40% of the air in your home comes into contact with your crawl space. Because of the “stack effect,” hot air gets drawn up from your crawl space into all other parts of your house. So, any dangerous toxins in there can impact you and your family’s health. These being some of key reasons why using a crawl space cleaning service and keeping up with its’ maintenance is so important.
Some examples of diseases caused by airborne toxins from a dirty crawl space include:
- Lassa fever
- Hemorrhagic fever
- Lymphocytic chorio-meningitis (LCM)
In addition, direct contact with crawl spaces can also be dangerous. If you ever need to go into your crawl space for maintenance, you could get sick. Along with rodent droppings, your crawl space may contain mold and mildew that is toxic if you come in contact with it. If a child gets in there while playing, they could fall ill from touching and breathing in the toxins.
Leave it to the crawl space experts when it comes to your clean up. They have the proper training, equipment and expertise to safely inspect and clean the space without putting themselves in harm’s way of any toxins that may be present.

Direct contact with a dirty crawl space can cause all the diseases listed above, as well as:
- Eosinophilic meningitis
- Bubonic plague
- Murine typhus
- Rat bite fever
A crawl space clean out is a great, cost-effective measure to reduce the chance that those toxins ever become airborne.
