A damp or wet crawl space is a very common problem that many people in Southern Texas experience. While a damp or wet crawl space may seem like nothing to worry over, it is a serious issue that could lead to health issues or further damage to your home. If you notice water in your crawl space, it is always best to contact a crawl space moisture control professional to come and take a look at it to see where the sole problem is coming from.
A damp or wet crawl space could mean a number of things. One of the major reasons for water in your crawl space is due to cracks in your foundation. If you notice a crack is where the water is coming from, you will need to contact a foundation repair professional right away, as cracks in your foundation are a sign of structural issues. Repairing the cracks yourself is never a good idea, as it is only masking the problem at hand. DIY crack repair will not solve the root of the issue. If these cracks are not properly taken care of, your homes structure and the health of you and your family could be at risk. Leaving water or damp areas in your crawl space could lead to worse factors such as mold, mildew, or wood rot, all things that no one wants the headache of dealing with.
