Why You Don’t Want A Wet Crawl Space

Crawl space moisture can negatively affect the home’s structural integrity and cause health problems for anyone living in the home.
How moisture in a crawl space can impact the health of the home’s residents
Moisture in a crawl space will cause mold to form. A percentage of air from the crawl space flows up into the home’s living area via the stack effect (see the illustration below). If the crawl space is full of mold, the air inside your home’s living area may be as well. This may cause allergies or other respiratory problems for anyone living in the home.
How crawl space moisture can affect a house’s structural integrity
Dark, damp crawl spaces are the perfect petri dish for things like mold, wood-eating pests, wood rot, etc. These things eat away at the wooden structures in a crawl space and this could eventually affect the foundation’s structural integrity. Also, wet, soggy soil can cause the support piers to settle into the ground and become non-vertical. If that happens, the floor above the crawl space will not have adequate support.

Crawl Space Drainage – Interior Drainage Systems

Standing water or serious leaks can cause major problems in your crawl space. The first step is to install a system that will drain water out of your home. This can include an interior drainage system such as a sump pump and sump pit. AMC911 Crawl Space & Foundation Repair offers professional drainage installations for your crawl space so that you can efficiently keep water out of your home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation – Vapor Barriers

Because vapor barriers decrease the moisture level in your crawl space, they improve the air quality of your entire home and make it more energy-efficient.

A vapor barrier is designed to reduce the evaporation of ground moisture into the crawl space air. Since 40% of the air we breathe comes from the crawl space, it is extremely important to keep it clean! At AMC911 Crawl Space & Foundation Repair, we offer top-quality vapor barriers to protect your Virginia crawl space from moisture. 

These vapor barriers offer the following benefits:
