Are you searching to learn what crawl space cleaning costs? Here we’ll break down the costs associated with cleaning your crawl space:
DIY or Hire the Pros
If you’re willing to do-it-yourself, you’ll need to buy all of the items needed to perform a clean-out including: crawl space suit, gloves, headlight, plastic to wrap up debris, tape, respirator masks, and a truck to remove all of the trash. These items can be purchased for around $150 to $200. Beware, many people attempt to begin this project only to turn it over to the Pros.
If you’re hiring the Pros, you’ll have to pay the labor cost, materials cost, and the companies fees for performing the work. Professional companies can complete the work much faster and more efficiently if they perform this work every day.
Crawl Space Square Footage
The size of the crawl space directly impacts the costs for a crawl space cleaning. Larger spaces require more work, more time, and more money to properly clean.
Difficulty of the Crawl Space
If it’s difficult to crawl under a house because of obstacles, the tightness of the space, or an excessive amount of debris to remove, it takes more time to clean out the crawl space… and more money.
While we can provide a crawl space cleaning as a standalone service, most times the cost is build into all of our moisture control services. No matter the moisture control solution, we always perform a crawl space cleaning as preparation for a new vapor barrier or crawl space encapsulation.
Honestly, the crawl space cleaning portion of most projects we provide is under $1,000 unless there is an extreme amount of debris or the space is especially hard to work in.
Removal and disposal of the crawl space floor insulation is not an enjoyable process. Most people find the respirator mask to be uncomfortable and the insulation to leave them itching for days. Here, we charge less than $1,000 to remove and dispose of all the insulation in your crawl space, for most crawl spaces under 2,000 square feet. For this low cost, most people prefer to have us do the work.
