Water in your crawlspace!?!

Water in your crawlspace!?!

When a home is built there are different options for your foundation. You can have an actual basement, a concrete slab on grade or a crawlspace.

Crawlspaces are normally chosen because of cost and accessibility. Crawlspaces allow air to circulate beneath your home, you can easily fix a sloping yard and it also allows you to run piping throughout your home with easy access for maintenance and repairs.

So far crawlspaces are sounding like a no brainer if you are not building out a basement, right? Well, not so fast. Those are all the perks to opting for a crawlspace but let’s talk about what happens when you get water in your crawlspace. Moisture in your crawlspace if not handled correctly or in a timely manner could cause significant issues.

Water in a crawlspace could pose issues to include wood rot, termite damage, hardwood floor cupping, and mold growth. Moisture in the crawlspace will eventually evaporate and could cause damage inside your home.

If you notice water in your crawlspace call SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill today @ 301.753.8313
