71) Repair/Maintain, Serviceable, Comment -
There were no apparent signs of wood destroying insects and some signs of mold in the crawl space of the house. Recommend the client ask for any known records of pest control for this property. If none exists, then I recommend that a qualified, licensed pest control company evaluate and possibly do a one time treatment of the perimeter of the house for 'peace of mind'. Recommend that a qualified contractor properly install a vapor barrier to separate ground moisture from the underside of the house. Recommend evaluating the grade on the southeast and east sides of house for drainage issues. Recommend the repair of the Heat Pump condensation pipe in the crawl space. Recommend installing a tight fitting lid on the crawl space opening to prevent water infiltration during rain storms. Recommend opening all the crawl space vents for better cross ventilation and to dissipate ambient moisture in the air.
