FAQs | Some questions many homeowners begin to ask themselves are:
- What diseases are these animals bringing into my home?
- Will it make me sick?
- Is it already making me sick and I don’t even know it?

- What are the long term financial risks to my home if I don’t fix this immediately?
- How do I fix this and how much will it cost?
The truth is that we don’t really know. What we do know is that every home is different and many variables affect how unhealthy a crawl space becomes over time — things like the size, where it sits in relation to the water table, how the crawl space has been insulated and vented — all come into play when assessing not only what damage has already occurred but also what needs to be done to fix it. Contact us and one of our customer care professionals will come out and talk with you about what they find and what it will cost to fix your crawl space.
