4 Signs Your Crawl Space Is Falling Apart


Unfortunately, our crawl spaces don’t last forever. When they do start to lose their shape, there are a few signs that homeowners should be made aware of. Keep an eye out for any of these issues with your crawl space to reveal whether or not it’s falling apart right underneath your home.

Insulation is Sagging

If your insulation is starting to sag over time, that means it’s not doing its job correctly. In order to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, insulation is a vital part of how well your crawl space works. Therefore, if you are having issues here then maybe it’s a sign that a bigger problem will occur. 

Signs Of Mold

If you notice multiple signs of mold and mildew growing in your crawl space, then it could be eating away at the structure and integrity of the foundation. Any kind of water damage down there could lead to mold, but also long standing structural issues that are hard to come back from if the damage goes too far. Keep an eye out for these! 

Bugs and Critters

If different kinds of little critters and bugs are making their way into your crawl space, then that means you have openings due to structural damage throughout. Certain kinds can eat away at the insulation and walls as well, so your crawl space can fall apart rather quickly. A thorough examination of this space, both inside and out, can ensure it’s safe.

Fall Water Damage Facts


When you think about water damage in your home, what season comes to mind? Probably not autumn, but it’s entirely possible to have many different kinds of water damage in your house this season! Protect your home, keep an eye out for the many different types of harm it could be facing during fall, and the facts you need to know.

Consequences of Temperature Drops

As temperatures start to drop more and more during the fall season, beware of the damage these freezing conditions can cause your pipes. Often, when going from warm to cool, it takes a while for your pipes to become used to the change. When these pipes do freeze or break, water can seep into the cracks of your foundation and rot the materials. Look for signs of mold buildup near sinks or showers, or listen for loud noises coming from your pipes to indicate an issue.

Too Many Leaves

One of the most common issues to arise during autumn is when leaves clog and fill your gutters. When your gutter system isn’t clear, water can’t run through it properly. In return, any kind of rain will cause water to spill out over the sides of your home. Accumulation of water in areas not meant to receive heavy amounts of it causes mold, breaks, and potentially pooling around your house.

Small Leaks Lead To Big Issues

Leaking pipes and fixtures are common all year around, no matter the season. Don’t think that just because it’s colder outside that you won’t have to worry about little issues under the sink. However, they can end up being anything but little. Overtime, moisture spreads because of the leak and causes mold to grow and spread. Mold can have disastrous results on your home’s structure and on you and your family’s health. Keep your eyes open for any problems!

Cleaning and taking care of your home after a water damage mishap can be difficult to deal with, and it is often best to bring in some professionals to help. Contact GreenPro Cleaning and Restoration to take care of your ducts, attics, crawl spaces, and water damage needs.

4 Ways To Lead an Eco-Friendly Lifestyle


Living an eco-friendly lifestyle has become more accessible to people in recent years. When you make the conscious decision to do your part for the environment, you might find that you lead a happy and healthier lifestyle. If you’re considering making the change, here are some top ways to start leading an eco-friendly lifestyle and how easy they are for beginners:


Quite possibly one of the easiest ways to contribute to your green lifestyle is to start recycling! Simply begin by separating plastic, paper, and glass and not just throwing them out in your regular trash. It’s easy to initiate for your home and even kids can learn how to get used to this new way of disposing recyclable items.

Start Planting

Give back to the Earth by planting some new trees and flowers around your home. As a bonus, your lawn will flourish too. Not only that, but you can also consider starting your own fruit and vegetable garden. Cooking with fresh produce and helping Mother Nature? Sounds like a win-win.

Invest In Environmentally Friendly Products

Sometimes changing your habits to something more environmentally friendly starts with investing in products that are safe and sustainable. Consider getting more reusable products, such as grocery bags, reusable snack bags, and refillable water bottles. Not only that, but some items are made of recycled materials. They have towels, clothes, and miscellaneous appliances that are made of environmentally safe materials that you can fill your home with.

Work With Eco-Friendly Companies

Check to see if the businesses you invest in are actively using sustainable options. A great example of this would be our earth-friendly approach, which sets us apart from the rest.

How To Protect Your Heating


As we move into colder months, it’s time to start up your heating system once again. However, keeping it running smoothly and protected all season long can be a bit more complicated than most homeowners realize. Optimize your energy usage and keep your family warm these next couple of months with these tips and tricks. 

Test Before Running Fully

Make sure you give your heating system some good test runs before running it at full capacity. This way, you can make sure it’s working properly and give it a chance to warm up before running for months on end. Any small issues that could lead to bigger and more expensive repairs can be spotted right away, which is especially important to catch before home heating season begins.

Maintenance Checks Are Key

Regular maintenance of your HVAC system helps ensure that nothing goes wrong all season long. This doesn’t just include the mechanical side of things, but also the cleaning side. Having your filters changed and your system cleaned out will make all the difference in how well your heating system is protected.

Proper HVAC Cleaning

Just as you wouldn't only clean half of your living room floor, you also would not want to clean only part of your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Although your heating is what you will most likely be using from now on, it’s still a part of your system as a whole. It is recommended that you clean the entire HVAC system in order to keep your heating protected.

Getting your home ready for winter weather and protecting your heating can be time consuming tasks, and it is often best to bring in some professionals to help. Contact GreenPro Cleaning and Restoration to take care of your ducts, attics, crawl spaces, and water damage.
