Many homeowners do not give much thought to this space below their home, but they should. What happens in the crawl space can influence the rest of the home.

If you are concerned about your home’s crawl space, we have listed some common problems with crawl spaces that we here at BDB Waterproofing can repair:

Leaky/wet crawl space

When a crawl space isn’t sealed off, it’s going to be filled with moisture when it rains or snows. The water then lies stagnant. Wet crawl spaces often cause the most damage to your entire home, which can exacerbate each problem below.

Sagging floor joists

Moisture from your crawl space can cause the floor joists to warp, rot, sag and deteriorate. When you have sagging floor joists, you may notice spots on the main floor that feel like they are not level. This is because the floor is very weak in these spots. Deteriorating wood may also attract unwanted pests, such as termites and mosquitoes.

Mold in Your Crawl Space

Mold and bacteria can easily grow in damp crawl spaces. They thrive on standing water, high humidity and organic materials, such as wooden joists, which they consume for food. Moldy crawl spaces can make your home smell musty. Mold also can cause serious health problems for family members of all ages – especially those who have allergies, asthma or other breathing problems.
