Creepy Crawl Spaces - Part 2

In the Snake Pit

It still haunts him to this day.

Phantom chills on the back of his neck when he pushes the shrubs blocking a crawlspace door away. An uncontrollable eye twitch when someone holds the ‘s’ on plural words too long. The need to poke at old floor joist insulation a few more times than he used to before starting to remove it. It was a surreal experience that was enough to prepare “J” for any hidden obstacles in the future. A family of snakes in the crawlspace insulation.
Yes, snakes.

How would you like to share your home with another family, and not the human kind?? My guess would be you wouldn’t. However, not knowing the condition of your insulation or not having an air sealed crawlspace or basement could be inviting big trouble. This is especially true in older homes that have not undergone modern updating.

And your bills could be crawling, too. Higher. A properly insulated and air sealed home does several things for you:

  • Reduces heating and cooling costs by conserving energy
  • Improves the overall comfort of your home
  • Reduces noise pollution

But keeping your costs and pest count down is not as hard as it may sound.

Give Athens Crawl Space Solutions a call.

We will inspect your home for any possible openings that may be a point of entry for rodents and locations for air leaks. We can block these and check your crawl space and basement insulation, leaving you relieved and knowledgeable of what‘s down there without you actually going down there.
