Your crawl space is an important part of your home. Any damage to your crawl space that is left untreated could spell bad news for your home and your family. Our professionals at Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing know that if you have a crawl space, then it is likely at some point, you will experience some of the following issues. Crawl spaces are usually left open to the elements, which means they will flood, and the humidity issues they experience can cause permanent damage to your home.

Whether your crawl space issues are flooding, humidity, or even sagging floors above your crawl space, we have the solution. We can install crawl space support jacks to repair sagging floors and install crawl space encapsulation systems to help stop flooding and humidity issues. In addition to this, another issue that some crawl spaces face is mold. We can perform mold testing and remediation services to combat the high humidity levels, musty odors, and mold growth in a home with a crawl space.
Common Crawl Space Issues
Below is a list of some of the most common issues that need crawl space repair. These issues can pose both health and safety risks. Look below to see if you can identify any of these problems in your home. If you do, don’t hesitate to contact our experts for a crawl space inspection and repair estimate.
Moisture: Excess moisture in your crawl space can lead to mold growth. This mold growth can be a serious allergen to you and your family members and should be resolved quickly. You can identify mold growth in your home first by smelling for musty or moldy odors, if there are visible signs of mold in your home then you may have a larger problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
Sagging Floors: Sagging crawl space supports can lead to the floor in your house sagging in one direction. This is a sign that the structural integrity of your foundation is compromised and your home may be on unstable footing. To test this, you can set a pin or a marble on your floor and see if it rolls away with no assistance.
Flooding: If you do regularly check your crawl space and notice that there is often water underneath your home after heavy rains or flooding, then you may need crawl space encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulation will completely seal your crawl space from the outside elements. This can help combat issues with moisture and mold growth and will keep your crawl space supports from rotting.
