To-Do #3: Inspect Crawlspace Under House
If you have a crawlspace under your house, it’s important to make sure the ground is covered by a layer of thick (6 mil) plastic sheeting to prevent excess moisture which can cause mold and rot to form on floor joists and flooring to warp and buckle.

You should also avoid storing any paper, cardboard, or wood under your house; and inspect the crawlspace periodically for termites and plumbing leaks.
