Problems Commonly Found in Crawl Spaces
There are many issues that can hinder crawl spaces, and in turn hinder your home. The damages of infected crawl spaces consist of mold, water, and pests. These aspects are the three primary concerns for residents that live in homes without basements.
Mold growth derives from humidity, moisture, and dark areas without light. Crawl spaces are prone to mold infection for this very reason, having included all three major causes. With mold, the ongoing incubation process of spores that become airborne can effect your family over time. In fact, it’s known as a health risk if left unchecked. Mold also deteriorates wooden support beams over time by eating away at the dead organic material.
Floods, Leaks, and Water
Crawl space can also become unstable from excessive amount of water exposure over time. Whether it’s flooding or leaks, water will eventually ‘drown’ the soil causing unstable conditions for your home’s weight. This causes your home to sink and break. Water will also weaken wooden support beams and structures underneath, causing more structural related damages.
Pests and Rodents
If your crawl space continues to be fertile with mold, moisture, and water, pests can become an issue – as these are the ingredients for unwanted guests from nature. The darkness beneath your home is the perfect place for any rodent or insect, while mold and water continue to expand creating more reasons to never leave. Once infiltrated, pests like insects and rodents are prone to reproduce, which then leads to expanding within your home. Gross! However, our crawl space repair products and methods are proven to work against these pesky infiltrators.
If you’re noticing certain ‘dips’ in your floors that may or may not make creaking noises, your crawl space is suffering from sagging floors. Where floor boards support the weight of your flooring and family, crawl space support beams help keep your floor board in place. Once the structural integrity of your crawl space is compromised everything falls out of place. This can be caused by deterioration of mold or water – where water makes wooden supports soft and weak, and mold eats away at the microscopic fibers of wood causing it to collapse.
