Moisture: Excess moisture in your crawl space can lead to mold growth. This mold growth can be a serious allergen to you and your family members and should be resolved quickly. You can identify mold growth in your home first by smelling for musty or moldy odors, if there are visible signs of mold in your home then you may have a larger problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
Sagging Floors: Sagging crawl space supports can lead to the floor in your house sagging in one direction. This is a sign that the structural integrity of your foundation is compromised and your home may be on unstable footing. To test this you can set a pin or a marble on your floor and see if it rolls away with no assistance.
Flooding: If you do regularly check your crawl space and notice that there is often water underneath your home after heavy rains or flooding then you may need crawl space encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulation will completely seal your crawl space from the outside elements. This can help combat issues with moisture and mold growth and will keep your crawl space supports from rotting.
