Did you know that the average crawlspace sucks ten gallons of water into your house each day? Over time, your crawlspace becomes the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew and harmful bacteria. A neglected crawlspace can also transmit cancer causing radon.
An untreated, wet crawlspace can rot the structural beams of your home, eventually causing the roof to rot. How? As moisture accumulates in the crawlspace, it is released into your home. The final point of exit is through the attic and roof. The constant elevated moisture levels cause wood beams, insulation and roofs to deteriorate over time.
Since every crawlspace is different, we’ll develop a custom solution to solve your wet crawlspace problem. The key is redirecting the intruding water and controlling the resulting moisture. The most common solutions include a sump pump, dehumidifier and vapor barrier.
