Crawl Space Repair
Buildings are often built with a crawl space to allow air to circulate, provide access to the essential piping such as plumbing and HVAC systems, and to make the initial build quicker and cheaper. A crawl space needs to be properly looked after to make sure there are no problems which can cause a knock on effect to the stability of the house. If you think your crawl space has suffered damage, damp or infestation, get in touch with Foundation Repair & Waterproofing in Springfield, MO as soon as possible to get a repair arranged.
How do I identify possible crawl space issues?
You may not need to enter the crawl space of your home often. But this can mean it’s harder to spot problems. Visually check your crawl spaces for damp, damage or other issues as often as you can, and keep an eye out for signs of damage in the property such as cracks in the walls, or a smell of damp. You can also make sure the crawl space is properly ventilated, the gutters on the building are intact and carrying rainwater away from the vulnerable foundation, and that there is no standing water around the foundation base. If you think any of these things are an issue, it’s time to get help.
Damp in crawl spaces
Damp in your crawl space can cause problems. You may find mold or mildew, which are bad for the health if they get into the home. Wooden structural elements can rot or even fail, and there may be issues with infestation which can further aggravate the problem. It’ll become more difficult to maintain the ambient temperature inside, which pushes up utility bills, and is bad for the environment. If you think there is an issue with damp in your crawl space it’s crucial to have it sorted before structural damage occurs. Give the team a call for expert advice, today.
Rot and infestation in the crawl space
Another common problem with crawl spaces is wooden elements of the structure rotting. Obviously this can cause knock on problems as the entire home is built on the foundations which sit on top of the crawl space. The early signs of rot in the foundation of a property can be hard to spot. Perhaps the floors on the interior of the house are starting to slope. Doors may no longer fit properly, or the floor might feel springy in some places. If you have any of these issues, or have any other reason to think there may be rot or infestation in the crawl space of your home, get urgent help from a foundations expert.
