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.
