What is a Crawl Space ?

Most house basements in Berkeley have big, livable basements that can easily be converted into rooms, some home owners still opt to have crawl spaces to store their house pipes in—this way, the pipes will be much more accessible and easier to repair when leaks occur. Aside from this, crawl spaces also double as storage space for other small house equipment.

Crawl Space Maintenance

Essentially, a crawl space needs to be maintained if you’re going to use it as a space for all your pipes. Pipes carry massive amounts of water to all parts of your house, and crawl space could easily acquire moisture if not regularly cleaned or checked. As with the nature of moisture and warm air, mold formations and mildew may start to form, and since a crawl space is a part of your house, mold can spread to other parts of your house as well. Aside from molds, nasty sewer smells can spread to the first floor of your house when not taken care of properly.

Bears Restoration offers all kinds of services for the crawl space, including the installation of plastic vapor barriers that prevent moisture from forming in the crawl space. This also keeps the moisture to rise up through your walls and create nasty odors all over the house. Furthermore, it keeps mold from spreading, and mold once it spreads can be unnaturally dangerous to a house’s inhabitants—it causes dizziness, vomiting, and nausea, among others.
