If you have a crawlspace, you should inspect it at least twice a year. This is to check for the accumulation of moisture on the floor or condensation on the structural material.
Ventilation in these places is very important, as such you should have through-the-wall ventilators. You should check the crawlspace on very hot or cold days. If there is water accumulation, this is a sign that the ventilation is not sufficient.
Asbestos insulation is frequently detected around boiler lines. If it is in good condition, it can be covered with tightly sealed plastic to keep the fibers from becoming airborne. If it is not in good condition, it will need to be removed, however the homeowner should never attempt this removal. Instead they should call a specialist.
