Water is a slow invader, often going unnoticed until it causes significant damage. Many homeowners do not realize the water has made its way into their homes until faced with severe water damage. By this time, the damage is extensive and costly to repair. That’s why it’s so important to seal your home properly before water damage occurs.
Crawlspaces are a common entry point for water to enter the home. Crawlspaces are beneath the ground, which makes them susceptible to leaks and excess moisture. It’s quite common for water to get in after heavy storms or through leaking pipes or foundations.
Bluebird is here to help you prevent water damage with crawlspace waterproofing. We will help you keep water out of your crawlspace and home.
Reasons for Crawlspace Waterproofing
Stevensville homes without basements often have crawlspaces instead. A crawlspace is also built between the ground floor of your home and the ground, but it is a maximum of 1.5 meters tall. To navigate through the space, you must “crawl”, hence the name. The crawlspace may be used for extra storage, but its primary purpose is to provide access to pipes, plumbing, and electrical.
Despite its functionality, you probably don’t enter your home’s crawlspace often. Out of sight can often mean out of mind, but it’s imperative that property owners keep the space dry.
Waterproofing safeguards your crawlspace from the following:
- Pests – Water causes damage, but it also tends to bring pests with it that do their own damage. Pests like insects, mice, rats, and more are attracted to water and can even enter your crawlspace through the water. Pests cause their own damage and can bite on the wood on your home or your electrical wiring. Keep out the water, and you’ll keep out the pests, as well.
- Mold – Mold likes to grow in dark, cool areas, just like a crawlspace. If water gets in the crawlspace, there’s a good chance you’ll find mold as well. Mold is unsightly, but it also is a health hazard for your family. Waterproofing is the best way to prevent mold in your crawlspace.
- Wood Rot – Water is very damaging to wood. The water itself, as well as the bacteria, fungi, and insects in it, eat away at the wood. This causes wood to rot. Rotten wood is weaker, and a hazard in your home. Keeping your crawlspace dry is important for ensuring the structural integrity of your home.
