Baton Rouge Crawl space Issues and solutions
Crawl spaces are areas with limited ceiling height beneath buildings and in ceilings. Crawl spaces are found in older homes that don’t have concrete foundations, and in many commercial properties. It’s important to inspect, clean, and weatherproof crawl spaces on a regular basis.

AdvantaClean’s technicians are thoroughly trained in proper safety procedures and are able to identify potential issues within a crawl space and make recommendations for repairs or improvements to prevent future problems.
Crawl Space Inspections
Crawl Spaces should be thoroughly inspected each year. Crawl spaces often contain plumbing, wiring, and other equipment that should be inspected, and crawl spaces are also a prime breeding ground for pests and mold. AdvantaClean’s technicians will thoroughly evaluate every corner of your crawl space, identifying and correcting any issues before they become major problems.
Residential Crawl Space Inspections
If your home has a crawl space, it’s important to have it inspected each year. Insects, rodents, and other animals often take refuge in crawl spaces in extreme weather, and their feeding, nesting, and mating activity can damage your property and leave a mess behind. Our inspectors also look closely at your footings, joists, plumbing, wiring, and insulation, making sure that everything is in good condition.
Commercial Crawl Space Inspections
Crawl spaces in commercial properties are a primary source for rodent and insect activity, heat transfer, dirt buildup, and bacteria growth. It is important to conduct thorough crawl space inspections on an annual basis in order to identify and correct these issues. Rodents can wreak havoc on wiring and insulation in crawl spaces, and these issues can lead to increased energy costs and fires if left unnoticed. Crawl Spaces are classified as confined spaces by OSHA, requiring strict safety precautions and documentation prior to being accessed. We train all AdvantaClean technicians in how to properly handle crawl spaces in compliance with OSHA standards.
Crawl Space Weatherproofing
Crawl spaces are a major point of heat transfer in homes and commercial properties. Pier and beam homes can suffer from excessive heat transfer as cold drafts circulate in crawl spaces in winter, and as temperatures rise in those same crawl spaces during summer. In commercial properties, plumbing and electrical equipment combines with limited ventilation to generate excessive heat, which can raise the temperature throughout a facility.
AdvantaClean offers a full range of crawl space weatherproofing services. Properly weatherproofing a crawl space keeps moisture from entering from the outside, and limits heat transfer as well. This can prevent costly moisture and mold problems and decrease energy costs drastically.
