Crawlspace Waterproofing Benefits You Should Know

If you are a homeowner who has a crawl space, there are some facts that you should know about the benefits of crawlspace waterproofing. You probably do not go into the crawlspace very often, unless you have many plumbing problems and need access to your plumbing. There are not many other reasons to get into that space, so chances are, it is an ignored space, most of the time. Armed with these facts, you will be able to make an informed decision about waterproofing the space.

About Half of the Air from the Crawlspace Finds Its Way Upstairs

You already know that moisture causes mold. When your crawl space has moisture, you can count on mold forming. It might not seem like a big deal since you stay out of the crawlspace anyway. However, the air from the crawlspace does not remain confined to the crawlspace. As much as half of the air from the crawlspace finds its way into your home. It means that much of the air that you are breathing inside your home has come from your crawlspace. If it is healthy, that is not a problem. When you have moisture issues and mold in the space, then you are breathing in mold spores. These can cause several ailments, including headaches, coughs, sniffles, a stuffy nose, skin rashes, wheezing, asthma and more!

Pests Love a Wet Crawl Space

If you are not fond of rats, mice, spiders, insects, and snakes, you are not going to be happy to learn that they all love moving into a wet crawl space. Even this might not be a problem if they stayed in the crawlspace, but chances are they will not. They may enjoy venturing upstairs to your home and paying a visit. After all, there is plenty of food up there for them to enjoy.

If any of the above facts caused you a minute of concern, it is time to call crawl space inspection. Trained technicians will come out to check out and diagnose water issues. They will then take care of them, so the space stays dry, and you never have to worry about mold, pests, or unhealthy air from the crawl space seeping into your home.
