Have moisture or water Problems?

If you've got a puddle under your home or water penetrating into the crawl space, we can help!

​Underneath most homes in the basement is a dark crawl space that often goes unnoticed. If left ignored for too long, you might be overlooking potential standing water in the crawl space from heavy rain or undetectable leaks. Unfinished crawl spaces typically have a soil ground as well as pipes and electrical wires running through them. Water can seep up into the small space through the ground and pipes carrying water can also leak or even burst. These issues can lead to damp crawl space problems.

Why is Standing Water in a Crawl Space Bad?

  • Your concrete structures, crawl space/basement walls, and foundation can also become “soft” as it ages, allowing water to seep into crawl spaces. The water passing through concrete will cause expansion and contraction of the block walls, and eventually lead to cracks. Additionally, your foundation supports can be found in your crawl space and if these sit in waterlogged soil for too long, they will warp, twist, turn, and even worse, eventually lose their structural integrity.

  • Pests: Nothing attracts pests more than small, dark spaces, but water is their best friend. Standing water will attract pests and small animals and sometimes, even microscopic plant life. Termites are likely to welcome themselves into your home through a damp crawl space, swiftly aiding in the structural damage of your home.

  • Mold and mildew. Prolonged periods of moisture in a crawl space will promote the growth of mold and mildew. They are both unsafe if gone unnoticed. Mildew is a surface fungi, while mold is the sign of a larger infestation of fungi. This will not only damage the wood in your crawl space, but also have adverse effects on a person’s health.
