It can be alarming to find water in your crawlspace. The bigger problem, however, is when warm weather turns those puddles of water into vapor, creating an excessively humid atmosphere. This excess moisture in your crawlspace can lead to bigger problems, such as rotting wood, pests, and mildew or mold growth. When you discover a wet crawlspace, your first thought is likely, “How did this happen?” followed closely by “What do I do now?” At Turners Underseal, we are here to provide you with answers to your questions and a reliable solution.
A wet crawlspace can likely be attributed to one of the following problems:
- Groundwater runoff: Large amounts of rain, poor grading, or clogged gutters can all lead to excess groundwater that then seeps into your crawlspace.
- Plumbing issue: A leaking or burst pipe can lead to excessive amounts of water in your crawlspace. If you find an active leak, shut off your water until you can call for help from a professional to guide you with next steps and repair the plumbing issue.
- Condensation: In highly humid weather that is frequent in the Southeast, condensation is common in crawlspaces, but should still be taken seriously. Your crawlspace needs adequate protection to prevent issues from excessive condensation.
