Crawl Space Insulation
Crawl Space Inspections Stop Major Problems Before They Occur
Odd noises, especially at night?
A strange odor coming from under your home?
Dampness or uneven heating or cooling in your home?
A sudden invasion of ants or other insects or spiders?
Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? All these can be the telltale signs of crawlspace problems, and if you choose to ignore them, you could wind up with a major repair expense down the road.
Your crawl space may not be the most hospitable place in your eyes, but to rodents, small animals and insects, a readily accessible, unprotected crawl space can be home, sweet home! This is especially true when it's time to reproduce (spring) or hibernate (fall).
Once an animal finds its way into your crawl space – through a missing screen or vent cover or other opening – it can do a lot of damage. In addition to leaving waste and odors behind, animals can damage ducts and insulation, even destroying the vapor barrier designed to protect your home from dampness. The next thing you know, you have moisture problems.
Day Energy Solutions: Rodent Eviction 101
At Day Energy Solutions, we help homeowners identify crawl space issues to ensure their insulation, ductwork and moisture barrier stay in good shape. We begin by inspecting the space for areas where animals might be entering. Then we go into the crawl space and take pictures of any damage or other problems so you can see what's going on. Once we identify the issues you're facing, we'll develop a solution that will help fix the problems and protect your home from additional damage.
It only takes one animal to do major, costly damage. If you've noticed any signs of crawlspace problems, or if you haven't had your crawl space inspected recently, we can help.
