The presence of excess water or moisture in your crawl space is often a result of improper soil drainage, broken water lines, or improper grading. Regardless of the cause, improper management of water in a crawl space will allow it to accumulate over time.
If left unchecked, this can result in the growth of mold and potentially cause damage to your home’s foundation. Fortunately, we can fix the problem before it can cause any permanent issues (or those that require costly repairs).
Many people have dealt with water in their home’s crawl space in the past. Unfortunately, it’s not impossible for this issue to occur over and over again, leading to the same issues you’ve experienced in the past.
With the installation of a water management solution you can prevent your crawl space from flooding or accumulating too much moisture as a result of excess groundwater or similar natural causes.
Other treatment options such as encapsulation or the installation of a dehumidifier require that any flooding be taken care of beforehand. Similarly, you’ll need to prevent flooding in the future in order for these methods to remain effective in controlling the conditions of your crawl space
Excess water in your home’s crawl space could result in a multitude of complications. If you recently noticed water in this area (or haven’t yet implemented proper management of existing water), it’s important to take action as soon as you can.
A member of our team will provide a free assessment in order to determine what type of service option is best for you.
Depending on how severe your crawl space flooding is, it can sometimes be difficult to remove the excess water through basic treatment options. Over time, water has the potential to cause structural damage to your home. In certain cases, you may even find that the floors in your home begin to sag or sink.
If the problem persists, you risk experiencing a full collapse of the flooring over the crawl space, which can put you and your family in danger (in addition to requiring immediate repairs). Fortunately, all of these are preventable by taking action before the water in your crawl space begins to affect the foundation of your home.
We have a variety of methods at our disposal to handle any water removal situation with ease. An experienced member of our team will assess the situation and take the most appropriate course of action to resolve the issue and minimize the chance of recurrence.
These drain systems allow you to remove unwanted water from your crawl space and relocate it to an area of your choosing. A quality drain will allow water to pass through but prevent other substances (like sand and debris) from becoming an issue.
Our team will ensure that your drain is installed effectively and out of sight, allowing it to function properly without being visible. Depending on the size of your crawl space and how water accumulates within it, the size and depth of your drain will vary. One of our professionals will assess your crawl space and determine what metrics are right for you.
When flooding occurs, a properly installed sump pump basin will be able to protect the sump pump as it functions. It should also have a direct connection with drainage pipes and have an anti-float plate that keeps everything intact while it operates in high water levels.
The pump itself is activated by the presence of water and promptly discharged outside of the crawl space once it reaches a certain level. If everything functions properly, the water won’t be able to rise above a specific height.
An important factor to keep in mind is that a crawl space sump pump should always be automatic. Installing one that you have to manually operate won’t be practical during heavy storms or actual floods.
This sump pump variant activates in the event of a power outage. It’s typically powered by a 12V deep-cycle battery and can typically remove approximately 2,300 gallons per hour, which should be more than sufficient enough to manage the excess water in your crawl space.
If your home loses power during a storm and you aren’t able to sufficiently manage your crawl space’s water level, you could end up with extensive damage that requires costly repairs. We recommend the battery backup variant due to the peace of mind that it provides.
