Worried about the long-term effects of moisture under your home or tired of moldy, musty smells coming from under the house? With wet crawl space repair services from Crawl Space & Basement Technologies, your home will be cleaner, drier, and healthier.
Causes of Crawl Space Moisture
Whether you have standing water under your home or it’s just damp, humid, and musty, a wet crawl space is generally caused by two issues:
- Evaporating water: When the soil around your home gets wet from rain and dew, the moisture seeps into the earth, including the dirt under your home. As it dries, the moisture rises to the surface and evaporates, creating vapor and excess humidity.
- Moisture transfer: North Carolina has hot, humid summers and has hot air from outside enters the crawl space where it’s often much cooler, it creates moisture that clings to the walls, pipes, and floor joists.
If left untreated, excess moisture can cause structural damage to the wood and concrete under your home, mold spores, and pest infestation, particularly termites that nest in damp earth and emerge for sources of food.
Effective Solutions for Wet Crawl Space Repair
At Crawl Space and Basement Technologies, we offer two highly effective methods of wet crawl space repair.
Designed for homes that experience water intrusion into their crawl space, crawl space waterproofing addresses the source of the problem. We install an interior drainage system that collects water and removes it immediately to keep the space under your home dry and clean.
Crawl space encapsulation seals the crawl space completely, preventing water evaporation from the soil under your home as well as moisture that seeps in through vents, cracks, and gaps. This eliminates all moisture under your home, creating a completely dry space free of mold, pests, odors, and other problems that moisture can cause.
