Crawl space, what is it, and what is its purpose?
Let us explain what a crawl space is so that you can understand why it is so important to maintain this area in your home. The crawl space is an open area between the first floor of your home and the ground it sits on, which serves as an alternate option to having a solid concrete slab foundation or a full basement. In height, it is usually between one to three feet high. The crawl space is just large enough for you to crawl into, and that is why it is named a crawl space! While many homeowners don't even give it any thought, your crawl space provides some vital functions for your home. A crawl space is where your home's inner workings are contained, and these are as follows; ventilation, heating, ductwork, electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, the gas hookup, and air conditioning. The crawl space under your home provides access when these parts of your home may need repairs, and that is why the crawl space needs to be in a good condition.
When it comes to any part of your home, it requires care and maintenance, and this goes for the crawl space as well. The crawl space requires care so that it functions well and so that it can protect your home’s structural integrity.
