Clean Crawls, a crawl space cleaning and attic insulation company servicing the greater Seattle area, recently released an article explaining 5 serious ways that crawl spaces can have negative effects on a home’s air quality, structural integrity, and energy bills.


Dangerous crawls space conditions can cause problems such as poor home air quality, damaged structural integrity, and high energy bills.

“To the chagrin of many a homeowner, it’s not uncommon to find disgusting conditions festering beneath their home,” Clean Crawls explains.

“To the chagrin of many a homeowner, it’s not uncommon to find disgusting conditions festering beneath their home,” Clean Crawls explains in their recently released article, “5 Serious Ways Your Crawl Space Affects Your Home.”

“Regardless of the length of time you’ve lived in your home,” they continue, “It’s a good idea to consistently inspect your crawl space.”

The article begins by explaining how toxic mold growth is cause by moist and humid conditions within a crawl space area. They also note that, because approximately 40% of the air in any given home seeps up through the crawl space area, those toxins then infiltrate the air breathed by the home’s occupants every day.

According to the article, “What many people assume is dust sensitivity or allergic reaction could actually be a response to dangerous mycotoxins seeping up from the home’s crawlspace.”

The second area Clean Crawls discusses is the crawl space’s affect on home energy bills. Most people wouldn’t closely associate crawl spaces with heating bills. However, the article explains that ineffective or nonexistent insulation in the crawl space area can cause cold air to seep through the floorboards, sabotaging the heating system’s attempts to keep the home warm and cozy.

“Homeowners that install crawl space (and attic) insulation consistently begin to experience 30-50% savings on their energy bills right away,” the article notes.

The following three points discuss damaged subflooring, compromised foundations, and rodent infestations — all areas of a home’s integrity that can be degraded by an inattentive homeowner and problematic crawl space conditions.
