A crawl space clean-out is a service we provide to address a number of potential issues with your crawl space, including damages sustained after a heavy rodent infestations.Clean-outs can vary depending on a few different factors, including the crawlspace itself and the scope of any damage or concerning issues. As with Crawl Space Cleaning Sunnyvale services, our technicians will perform a thorough inspection of the crawlspace to determine the best course of action.
In some situations, a clean-out may have relatively minimal requirements, such as the removal and replacement of the vapor barrier. In instances where the crawl space suffered a severe rodent infestation, a clean-out may require full sanitization and deodorization of the site as well as removal and replacement of vapor barriers, flex ducting, and insulation.
There are many reasons why you could benefit from a crawl space clean-out, including better ventilation, lower energy bills, and protection from damaging moisture. Cleaning out your crawl space—along with a thorough inspection—can help shed light on damage from rodents or other pests, and help prevent future infestations from happening.
