What is Crawl Space Drainage?

Crawl space drainage refers to systems and products that redirect, collect, and remove water from crawl spaces. 

Excessive moisture leads to serious issues like wood rot, mold growth, musty odors, and pest infestations. An effective crawl space drainage system captures water quickly and prevents these issues.

Our system is strategically placed in trenches within the crawl space and covered with gravel to filter out debris, ensuring uninterrupted groundwater flow to a sump pump system. 

Signs You Need Crawl Space Drainage  

To keep your home in top condition, it’s important to quickly spot any signs of crawl space damage. Early detection can minimize damage and reduce repair costs, helping to ensure your crawl space remains well-maintained.

Watch out for these indicators of crawl space drainage problems: 

Wet, flooded crawl space.

These symptoms suggest moisture issues that could lead to significant damage if not addressed. Contact local pros like Foundation Support Specialists right away for expert assistance.

Is Crawl Space Drainage Necessary?

Yes! Ignoring drainage issues only exacerbates the problem.

Our team at Foundation Support Specialists strongly advises against DIY crawl space solutions due to the potentially hazardous nature of the area. If you notice any of the above signs, contact our crawl space encapsulation experts for a comprehensive inspection and professional solution implementation. 

Early action to prevent water damage is cost-effective and ensures long-term protection for your home.

What Are the Benefits of Crawl Space Drainage? 

Dry, clean crawl space without water.

Combining crawl space drainage with encapsulation brings numerous advantages:
