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.
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.
Crawl spaces that are constantly flooded will weaken a home’s foundation over time.
A dry crawl space can be used for many purposes, including storing equipment, supplies, etc.
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.
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.
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.
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 may take years. However, months of damage is usually irreversible and very expensive to repair. What’s more, stagnant water will accelerate wood rot.
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.
