Make sure you have a clean crawl space: Crawl Space Cleaning is Important and Necessary Maintenance for Your Home
Most homeowners want to have as little to do with their musty crawl spaces as possible, let alone enter them. As a result, a lot of homeowners in the Greater Seattle Area don’t pay as much attention to crawl space cleaning as they should.
This isn’t an issue to be taken lightly. Frequently, the damp conditions in these areas are an open invitation for rats and mice to infest a home. If they have access to water, they thrive. And because these areas are conducive to water entry and even flooding, there is usually a collection of debris. Rodents can use that debris to build nests if they get inside. And in extreme cases, there can be evidence of structural rotting in crawl spaces. Such rotting itself provides safe harbor for various pests, and can be exacerbated by their presence.
Fortunately, Eastside Insulation provides crawl space cleaning services that will solve these problems. Our insulation technicians use industry best practices to get your crawl spaces spick and span. Protecting your crawl spaces from infestations is not the only thing we can help with. We will also make sure your crawl spaces are clean, dry, and energy efficient.

Keep Your Home Safe with Crawl Space Cleaning Services
You may be questioning why there is debris and standing water in the areas below your house’s living spaces. Unwanted debris beneath these areas indicates problems with moisture, or potentially even flooding. And the fact is that most homeowners want nothing to do with crawling under the house to remove debris. Clearing out old equipment, newspapers, and other miscellaneous items—including things that may have floated in—can be hard work.
Our expert technicians conduct crawl space cleaning services that get rid of debris and any damaged insulation. Furthermore, they can sanitize these areas to return them to a state that is clean and safe for your family. With that done, you’ll be ready to follow up with other work such as spray foam insulation services, if necessary.

Proven and Professional Crawl Space Cleaning
Crawl spaces that aren’t cared for provide prime conditions for dust mites and airborne mold spores to grow. Those spores and mites are among the most common causes of allergies that can affect your loved ones and pets. Additionally, leaving your crawl spaces to languish may cause metal to rust, and structural wood to rot.
These are all reasons why you need to take crawl space cleaning seriously.
