Wet Crawl Spaces: Moisture, Humidity and Hazards
If the crawl space isn't sealed off, it is only a matter of time until moisture and excessive humidity get inside and start to cause problems. Moisture can lead to wood rot in supports, beams, and floor joists. And the
Warning Signs of a Problem
- Water can be seen building up next to the footing on the outside of the home
- Certain spots on the first floor of the home no longer feel level
- Home smells musty (indication of mold growth)
- Unwanted critters can be seen entering or exiting the CS (roaches, termites, spiders, snakes, raccoons, skunks, mice, etc.)
- Home feels very uncomfortable and skin is clammy or damp (humidity)
The Solutions: Crawl Space Encapsulation & Structural Supports
For full restoration and protection of your crawl space, the area will need to be sealed off properly so that water, moisture, or pests can't get inside. Vapor barriers, floor liners, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps will be installed to help with creating an efficient, dry, safe, and healthy area beneath your home. This wards off mold, woodrot, odor, and any other symptom that arises from poorly protected crawl spaces.
During the time of the encapsulation, Basement Problems will also work on repairing damage that has already been done. This includes crawl space floor jack installation for rotted wooden support beams that have deteriorated over time from mold and mildew. Much like foundation repair with piers, floor jacks are the structural solution for crawl spaces. Additionally, we can repair or replace damaged wooden floor beams underneath your home if the damage has spread.
The Systems We Use
Below are examples of the various systems we use to assess internal damages associated with crawl spaces.
Crawl space drain tile systems are designed to keep excess water from entering your crawl space. These systems are installed around the exterior of your crawl space to direct water away from your home.
Our team installed crawl space vapor barriers to keep all forms of water and other toxic ground vapors from entering your crawl space. These systems are designed to protect your home from toxic gasses such as radon.
Our crawl space floor jacks are installed to help support your home. Over time your crawl space supports can deteriorate causing your home to become structurally unstable. Our support system is designed to help support your home.
Crawl space sump pumps are among the most commonly installed waterproofing solutions. They are designed to forcibly remove water from your crawl space and direct it away from your home.
