Crawl Space Flooding Is a Big Problem

According to FEMA, one of the main reasons homes in the US have crawl spaces is to prevent flooding. US homes in flood-prone areas usually have crawl space foundations. If homes in such areas face more severe floods than anticipated during design, flooding is inevitable and extensive water damage.

Reasons That Lead to Crawl Space Flooding

Heavy rainfall: Since crawl spaces are a safeguard against flooding in many areas, heavier than anticipated flooding is a common cause of crawl space flooding.

Poor grading: The soil resting on your home’s foundation must slope down as well as away from your foundation wall. Your home should also be sitting on a well-planned landscape. If the land is graded poorly, water won’t flow away freely from your home.

Damaged/clogged drainage systems: If your home’s drainage systems aren’t working as designed due to damage or clogging, crawl space flooding is inevitable.

Excessive underground moisture: Water can also originate from underneath and flood your crawl space.

Benefits of Keeping Your Crawl Space Dry

  1. Stronger Foundation

Crawl spaces that are constantly flooded will weaken a home’s foundation over time.

  1. Functional Storage Space

A dry crawl space can be used for many purposes, including storing equipment, supplies, etc.

  1. Reduced Infestation and Mold Growth Risks

Insects (like cockroaches and termites) and pests like mice love invading moist places. Mold also thrives in moist areas and causes wood rot. A dry crawl space reduces such risks and need for expensive mold removal and related services.

  1. Improved Comfort and Health

Mold, pests, and insects linked to crawl space flooding come with bad odor. They are also a risk to your health and can be annoying when the problem moves from your crawl space into your home. A dry crawl space restores health and comfort levels in many aspects.

Why Hire Professionals to Perform Crawl Space Water Removal

Controlled Risk: A flooded crawl space comes with multiple risks ranging from waterborne diseases to respiratory health sicknesses like asthma linked to mold. Crawl space water removal experts understand how to remove crawl space water safely.

Efficient Services: A flooded crawl space poses other risks like structural damage. If you aren’t an expert, you can’t possibly inspect, let alone repair your foundation. Crawl space water removal companies offer related services.

Cost Benefits: You may think you are saving money by dealing with crawl space water issues on your own. However, you face serious risks that range from exposing yourself to mold and other health risks to damaging your foundation and facing serious costs in the process.

The Longer Water is Under Your House the More Damage You May Have to Repair

Mold Growth

Mold thrives in moist areas and is known to attack the foundation (particularly natural products like timber and rubber). Adjacent surfaces can also be destroyed by the acid produced by surface deposits. Mold can also have physical effects that destroy or impede electric circuits.

Wood Rot

Wood rot may take years. However, months of damage is usually irreversible and very expensive to repair. What’s more, stagnant water will accelerate wood rot.

Termite Damage

Termites feed on cellulose from wood and other plant/living matter. In the presence of water in crawl spaces, termites have plenty of food to multiply and destroy a home’s foundation in a few years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please take a moment to read answers to our most frequently asked questions about our services.

The short answer is “No” – that is, if you do nothing, the water in your crawl space will most likely not move. Crawl space moisture can be caused by leaking pipes, foundation wall fissures, or even by the soil itself.
As a general rule, you should keep the humidity level in your crawl space below 55%. This level may vary significantly depending on where you live and the time of year. Regardless, it is a good idea to keep an eye on this humidity level throughout the year.
Aside from structural difficulties, wetness in your crawl area may promote mildew and mold development. While some moisture in your crawl space is normal, especially if you live in a humid climate or in an area with substantial yearly rainfall, leaving it there is not a smart idea.
It may take eight to ten hours to dry a wet crawl space. Warm, moving air absorbs moisture more readily. To speed up the drying process, place a low-heat source, such as a light bulb, within the crawl space, and install one or more electric fans to blow air across damp surfaces.

Basement waterproofing is the process of keeping water out of the basement of a house or structure using various methods and materials. Waterproofing a basement below ground level may necessitate the use of sealants, drains, and sump pumps, among other things.
