Does a Crawl Space Need to be Waterproofed?

If you have a crawl space, it needs to be waterproofed. Crawl spaces are highly susceptible to moisture intrusion, which can cause problems like mold growth, pest infestation, and structural damage. Crawl space water proofing will help you avoid these issues and lead to benefits that you’ll feel throughout your entire home. 

Signs You Need Crawl Space Waterproofing 

If you think there’s water in your crawl space, it’s best to take action quickly. Water damage will get worse the longer you ignore it, so be on the lookout for signs of moisture in your crawl space and take a defensive approach to protect your home with crawl space solutions.

Why Should You Water Proof Your Crawl Space? 

It’s worth it to seal your crawl space! Crawl space waterproofing helps you prevent serious problems, including: 

Structural Damage 

Moisture in your crawl space can rot wood, rust metal, and crumble drywall. Installing crawl space water proofing materials such as a vapor barrier will make your home more durable and prevent the risk of structural damage. 

Mold Growth 

A warm, damp crawl space is the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold can eat away at your home’s structure, causing serious damage. It can also impact your indoor air quality and make your family sick. 

The air in your crawl space rises up into your home and becomes the air your family breathes. If your crawl space is damp and moldy your family will be breathing in contaminants that can impact their health. With crawl space encapsulation, you can keep pollutants out of your home and improve your indoor air quality. 

Insect and Rodent Infestation 

Moisture can attract a long list of pests including roaches, carpenter ants, mice, and termites. Pests can wreak havoc on your home and once they’re in, they’re hard to get rid of. Moisture control is one of the best ways to prevent pest infestation in your crawl space!
