Why Do Homes Have Crawl Spaces?

Purpose of Crawl Spaces


We live in a city that was built on a swamp, therefore, most of the houses don't have basements. Most of the homes have crawl spaces instead. The purpose of the crawl space it to allow air circulation throughout the home as well as access to electrical and plumbing ducts for necessary repairs.


Over time, moisture can build up in the crawl space and cause odor. All crawl spaces need to be cleaned and maintained. GreenPro Cleaning offers a variety of services which also includes crawl space cleaning. If you start to notice a musty odor and despite your home is clean, you may need to have the crawl space cleaned. We needed to get ours cleaned and it made a world of difference.


During heavy rains, moisture can build up in the crawl space as it did ours. Most people don't think about having space cleaned that they don't use, but this couldn't be further from the truth. At some point, every space in your home whether it's a room that you use on a daily basis or a room or space that you may have never seen, all parts of the home will need maintenance and cleaning.


GreenPro Cleaning can remove the moisture. unpleasant odors, bugs, debris and water that can be in your crawl space. I personally didn't want to go in my crawl space and I find them kind of scary so I will leave that to the professionals who know exactly what they are looking for and solve the problem.


If you have noticed the air quality in your home is not what it used to be, I suggest that you give GreenPro Cleaning a call. They will come out and let you know exactly what is going on and let you know what they need to do to correct it.

Why Do My Wooden Floors Warp from Water Damage?



Sometimes, during periods of inclement weather, you may have seen some situations where water damage may have occurred to your wooden floors.


Perhaps it is from a leak in the roof, maybe it is as a result of flooding, or even a window or door left open for an extended period of time. Either way, we here at GreenPro Cleaning can remedy your home's wooden floor damage issues.

If you are seeing water damage to your wooden floors, there are a couple of steps you should take in order to ensure your own safety. First of all, water damaged wood contains a plethora of bacteria and touching it can only cause you to get sick. Don't touch the water damaged areas.


Secondly, if there is extensive water damage in a room, you should seal the room and not go in there. Breathing the fumes from water damaged areas can cause you to get sick as well. So don't breathe the air and get out of the water damaged room. Most importantly, you should call a professional cleaning service.
