The adventurous and ambitious DIY community may need to contact the professionals when it comes to crawl space projects.

Clean Crawls, a local crawl space cleaning and insulating company of Snohomish County, warns DIY-ers about certain mistakes that they’ve seen while working in crawl spaces. Some mistakes are minor and can be easily fixed by professionals, but others can cause enormous problems and extraordinary expenses. These mistakes are outlined in their newly released article.

“When it comes to crawl spaces, there are few mistakes that we’ve seen from DIY-ers that have been particularly destructive,” Clean Crawls says.

The article discusses mistakes such as installing additional venting to the crawl space, installing insulation into damp areas, and other various common crawl space maintenance issues that homeowners expect that they can handle by themselves.

While many DIY homeowners have physical capability, mental determination, and the tools to do the job, their efforts often result in at least one of the five mistakes listed in the article.

Because these individuals simply aren’t trained to recognize possible dangers, damp wood can be insulated improperly to enable mold growth, or vapor barriers can be incorrectly installed and allow condensation build up. In other cases, foundations are weakened from gutter and downspout drainage that drains water too close to the home’s foundation.

“Before venturing out on your own to conquer your DIY projects, stop and consider whether or not this project is one that really should be handed off to your local professional service men,
‘ Clean Crawls advises.

“In such instances, you’ll find that you’ll save lots of money in the long run, while also supporting your local businesses,” they say.
