At Foundation Medix, we want to make sure you don’t forget about your crawl space. A moldy, wet space is no good for the rest of your home structurally and no good for you healthwise. Continue reading below to learn how to keep your crawl space in great shape.
There is a multitude of things that can cause wet or damp crawl spaces. If your area experiences a lot of rain and you happen to have a clogged gutter or misaligned spout, you could deal with a wet crawl space. If your property was improperly graded before construction you could have pooling water at the base of your foundation. If the soil beneath your home has started to shift along with your home, you could have a wet crawl space. It’s important to be aware of the weather and always check your home after a major storm for signs of damage.
A wet crawl space is incredibly dangerous to ignore. Not only does mold and mildew thrive in this environment, but it also poses an extreme health risk.
