Although most homes in SW Florida are built on concrete slabs, our most historic homes are frame built with crawl spaces. In the SW Florida crawl space we contend with spiders, bugs-BIG ones, rodents, snakes etc. so a tyvex suit and respirator is necessary. Troy Pappas has put together a great video of many home problems uncovered in the crawl space. Although he inspects in Virginia Beach, his compilation is universal.

Doing home inspections in Virginia Beach it is a good chance that at least a couple time a week I will be venturing into a crawlspace. Crawlspaces are host to a large number of conditions that may cause issues with a house.
They are known for the nasty discoveries that home inspectors find there. It is not to difficult to understand why, for one thing, their cool, dark environment attracts undesirable pests and can promote dangerous conditions. And since crawlspaces are rarely visited, hazards can go unchecked for long periods of time. The following video shows just some of the issues discovered doing Virginia Beach home inspections.
