Crawl Space Repair
When you have problems that originate in your crawl space, they can easily spread to other areas of your home and the results can be devastating. Water problems, structural issues and poor air quality are just a few of the problems your home can be facing when your crawl space is in need of repair.

Issues That Your Crawl Space Could Be Facing
When it comes to your foundation or crawl space, there are three main areas of concern:
1. Water Problems: Water is able to enter into your crawl space through weak points in the foundation. Water pooling under your home can lead to many unpleasant and costly issues including; moldy crawl space, structural damage and rot, increased crawl space humidity and foul odors.
2. Structural Problems: a crawl space that is facing structural integrity issues leaves the support system of the home vulnerable to damages. Your floors can begin to sag, walls crack and doors and windows stick. Left unchecked, these issues can dramatically impact the look, appearance and value of your home.
3. Poor Air Quality: Have you noticed a musty, earthy odor emitting from your crawl space? If so, you are likely dealing with a moldy crawl space. This is dangerous because the contaminated air in your crawl space rises up through your home and becomes the air that you and your family breath inside your home. If your crawl space is contaminated, you are breathing in unhealthy air which can result in health issues.

Signs That Your Crawl Space is in Need of Repair
Many homeowners don’t pay a lot of attention to their home’s foundation or crawl space. Unfortunately, failure to maintain your crawl space can lead to any and all of the issues we mentioned above.
Some signs that your crawl space is in need of professional repair include:
-Crawl Space Moisture: Many crawl spaces are lacking proper drainage systems, which causes water to pool around your crawl space. When cracks begin to form in your floors or walls, the surrounding moisture will seep in and cause standing water, high humidity, and dangerous mold growth. If your crawl space is wet, professional moisture remediation is a must.
–Cracked or Warped Walls: When your home starts to have issues with the structure of its foundation, excess stress is placed on your home’s walls. This extra stress will eventually cause your walls to creak and warp, indicating to you that there is a problem with your home’s foundation.
-Moldy Crawl Space: Mold growing under your home is a sign that the moisture levels in your crawl space have risen to a high level. Mold spores feed off damp, dark places making your foundation the perfect place to colonize. You may become aware of the mold when the crawl space humidity levels are high, or you may begin to notice a stale, musty odor emitting from the space.
-Pest Infestation: Similar to mold, pests love to take residence in damp, dark places. If you have a rodent or insect situation in your crawl space, you will want to eradicate them before they have the opportunity to do some serious damage to your foundation.
–Uneven Floors, windows or door frames: If your home’s structural integrity is being affected by the condition of your crawl space, the foundation piers will begin to erode and sink causing uneven floors. The sinking of these piers can also result in door and window frames distorting and tilting. When window and door frames begin to tilt, you may notice that they are sticking and difficult to open and close.
If you have noticed any one or more of the above signs that your foundation is problematic in your home, the time to get it repaired is now! By taking swift action at the onset of any of these issues you can greatly reduce the chances of needing major structural repairs.
