There are many types of inspections you’ll routinely have done when you own a home or a business. It starts when you first put a property under contract and have a window of opportunity to learn everything you can about the property before you close. Once you close, you move into the realm of scheduling inspections for annual maintenance or when you suspect a problem. Crawlspace inspections should be on the list of both pre-closing and post-closing inspections because of the importance of knowing if there is a moisture problem under the structure.
Crawlspace inspections don’t just tell you if there is excess water and moisture, but also how to remedy the problem. Common solutions include encapsulation and installing a crawlspace dehumidifier. If it has been wet for a while, you likely also need mold remediation services. Another reason to schedule crawlspace inspections is if you notice problems inside the home or business, such as condensation on the windows, an increase in pest problems, the air conditioner running almost constantly, mold or mildew on walls or ceilings, flooring issues, or musty odors. An increase in allergy symptoms could also be a sign of a problem because of diminished indoor air quality.
