3 Things that Are Located in Your Crawl Space

Crawl spaces are often dirty, smelly and dark. It’s no wonder most people don’t even think about venturing into theirs! However, your crawl space is also an access point that you’ll probably have to get into at one point or another. Here are three things that are located in your crawl space:

Plumbing

Before it’s emptied into the sewage system, your home’s plumbing likely travels through your crawl space. You may not realize it, but these pipes need to be maintained occasionally – especially when the seasons change.

Electrical wiring

Homeowners will often have electrical wiring running across their crawl space’s ceiling and walls. It’s imperative that you check on these thick wires and make sure they are not being chewed apart by rodents and other intruders. Otherwise, your home’s energy could be compromised!

Vents

There are vents located throughout your crawlspace to all air in and out. These vents keep your crawl space’s air dry in the summer, helping to “prevent the moisture buildup that encourages mildew and rot,” advises This Old House.
