Not all homeowners know this, but homes in Echo Park operate as a holistic system. What we mean by that, is that every part of the home is interconnected with the rest of the home. This system’s “base” is its crawl space, which is the unfinished area under the home’s first floor, which often provides access to plumbing or wiring.
Most homeowners don’t every go inside their crawl spaces, as they are dirt-lined and frankly, can be nasty. But the truth is, homeowners should go inside their crawl spaces to make sure that these areas have not become a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria, mold, mildew, allergens, and pests (which can die in there and pollute the home’s environment).
Remember we said that homes operate as a system? Well it is important to note that the air you find in your crawl space is what makes its way up and inside your home, to be breathed-in by vulnerable family members! So, if your home’s crawl space is a humid, bacteria and mold infested mess, all that nastiness is traveling upward and into your home’s living space every day!
