If you have a basement and not a crawlspace, head over to our basement waterproofing page for more information.
In Pennsylvania, crawl space problems are more common due to our higher humidity index. Pennsylvania is located where humidity is high which makes symptoms like woodrot and mold a threatening issue. This is not only a major concern for your family but your home’s structural integrity as well. We also have average rain falls and snow thawing seasons that generate a lot of water. If left unprotected your crawl space can deteriorate over time.
Common and Most Serious Problems Homeowners Should Look For
Crawlspaces that have become consistently wet or flooded are a result of poor water mitigation and/or encapsulation. Without a drain to direct water away from this area, or a barrier to keep soggy soil or damp air contained, crawlspaces become rotted and cause other problems.
With sagging floors it’s an indication that the support beams within the crawlspace have deteriorated. In most cases this will be either wooden or concrete joists that have become rotted or broken from mold, mildew, water, and humidity. This is an after-effect of poorly sealed crawlspace without protection.
Humidity and Odor
Any type of odor coming from your crawlspace means there’s bacteria and mold growth underneath your home. It’s caused by damp environments and humidity with poor ventilation. No barrier protection also leaves this area vulnerable to water penetration, which can result in mold growth.
