Why Should You Waterproof Your Crawl Space?
Moisture in your crawl space can be incredibly dangerous. Due to its lack of protection from the elements, your crawl space is most vulnerable to flooding. Moisture in this area of your home will lead to damage to your home’s support beams and can cause serious mold contamination directly underneath your home.
Support beams are in charge of supporting the entire structure of your home. When they are threatened by moisture, your entire property is threatened. Using a sump pump and other waterproofing systems, such as crawl space encapsulation, can help keep your crawl space dry and will protect your home from water damage.
