At Lowcountry Basement Systems we focus on solving moisture, mold issues, and even flooding in crawl spaces. Moisture, mold, and flooding issues in crawl spaces are caused by ground moisture, thermal break, and infiltration of air. Although the solution to crawl space issues varies from case to case, whether it be adding a dehumidifier, seal your crawl space, or installing a sump pump in your crawl space. Lowcountry has the solution to reduce crawl space humidity in your home.
In this episode of “Ask the Expert”, Videon addresses a question from a customer in Hinesville, GA who is puzzled by the fact that water has been suddenly pooling in the crawl space under his home.
This can happen for many reasons such as settling of the soil, changes in the grading or the landscape. Regardless of the reason, it is very important according to Videon, to get it taken care of right away to avoid a myriad of other problems caused by excess moisture in the crawl space. These problems can eventually compromise the structural integrity of the home.
Lowcountry Basement Systems can solve this problem with a crawl space drainage system specifically designed for this purpose, and a powerful sump pump system that will get the water out and away from your crawl space. Crawl space sealing and a crawl space dehumidifier are often recommended to take care of other sources of moisture such as ground, outside air and condensation.
