Harrell's Waterproofing, Inc.
Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home.
- Moisture on walls, dirt floor or vapor barrier appears from excess humidity or condensation
- Water enters through the ground and comes from hydrostatic pressure (water building up from below and being forced up into the crawlspace)
- Water enters through the cracks, seams or other penetrations in the walls. This is due to water draining or being forced through the walls.
- Water flows over the top of the walls because of improper grading. It could also be caused by improperly sealed porches or additions.
Water can enter your crawl space in several different ways.
