Crawl Space Waterproofing
Waterproofing your crawl space is a must-do for any homeowner. Crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture, which can lead to mold and mildew growth, structural damage, and other hazardous conditions. The experts at 911 Water Damage Restoration of Alexandria will walk you through the process of how to waterproof your crawl space from start to finish so that you can protect your home from years of water damage.
Benefits of waterproofing your crawl space
Water damage can be a major problem for homeowners. This is especially true if the water seeps into your crawlspace or basement. However, there are several ways to prevent this from happening in the first place. One way is installing a waterproof membrane over your dirt floor and then covering it with gravel so that any water will flow right through instead of pooling up on top of the fabric. Another option is to install an interior drain system that will divert water away from your home’s foundation. If you’re not sure what would work best for you, call 911 Water Damage Restoration of Alexandria today! We’ll help you solve all your wet problems.
Traditional Waterproofing Solutions for Crawl Spaces
Crawl spaces are not ideal for living areas, but they’re often found in older homes. While this may seem like a waste of space, crawl spaces can actually offer benefits such as increased storage and insulation from the ground. However, it’s important to note that these benefits only occur when there is proper waterproofing installed. The water and humidity levels under the house can also affect your health by causing mold or mildew growth, which leads to unhealthy air quality inside of your home. To help prevent any damages caused by moisture and high humidity levels in crawl spaces, we recommend installing an outside perimeter drain to remove excess surface water before it enters into your home’s foundation via the crawl space floor drain cover. In addition to drainage solutions such as these , we also offer Crawl Space Encapsulation, which is an ideal solution for areas where water penetration may be a persistent issue.
