A wet crawl space creates an environment that is unhealthy, smelly, and structurally unsound. Wet crawl spaces allow mold and dust mites to thrive, producing millions of toxic airborne mold spores .
Contaminated air from your damp crawl space is drawn up into the living areas of your home, which worsens allergy symptoms and indoor air quality . An unhealthy crawl space also increases your electric bills , is the cause of your cold floors , and also allows pest and rodent infestations .
Insects and pests love damp crawl spaces ! These pests feast on the wood rot and decay caused by a damp unsealed crawl space . Plus all of that moisture can create structural damage, like sagging floors .
Problem signs like these are most often symptoms of serious water intrusion and foundation problems, and the underlying issues need to be addressed.
You need proven, patented solutions from experts in waterproofing and foundation repair to perform a thorough inspection to ensure the safety of your home.
Water Intrusion Signs & Causes
Clogged footing drains lead to a buildup of water in the soil surrounding your home. The weight of this water, called hydrostatic pressure, pushes against your home’s foundation causing bowing and cracking over time and provides water a way in.
Heavy rain and flooding adds to hydrostatic pressure and soil settlement problems exasperating the existing underlying problems.
Over time backfilled soil around your basement can settle and sink toward your foundation. This settlement creates a slope for runoff and rain water to flow toward your home.
Footing drains are installed outside your basement’s foundation to divert water. While these pipes are designed to enable water to flow away from your foundation, over time they can easily clog with a buildup of dirt and debris.
When water comes in contact with concrete surfaces and evaporates, chalky mineral deposits are left behind.
Water droplets and corroded metal (rust) in your basement are signs of high humidity levels —the ideal environment for mold, mildew, musty smells , and dust mites to flourish.
Damp basement walls can be caused by underground water and condensation building up.
Your basement cove joint is the seam where your basement walls and floor meet. These seams are a common problem area for water leaks. Water in your basement cove joint may also indicate a buildup of hydrostatic pressure .
