Florida's frequent heavy downpours lead to wet and flooded crawl spaces. Water in the crawl space leads to serious mold and mildew growth, wood rot, and structural damage. If you have a wet crawl space, take action to get the water out and prevent future flooding.
Sunshine Foundation Repair can help fix your crawl space water problem with proven waterproofing solutions. Get a free crawl space waterproofing estimate today to learn how we can help keep your crawl space dry all the time.
Water in a crawl space can come from a plumbing leak, outside drainage problem, or groundwater seepage.
Common signs of problems related to water in the crawl space include:
A dirt crawl space that hasn't been encapsulated can allow ground moisture to seep into the crawl space and increase the humidity level in your home. Standing water in the crawl space leads to moisture that causes mold, mildew, and wood rot. Crawl space humidity can cause discomfort, and high utility bills, and aggravate allergies and asthma.
Sump pump with battery backup, SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and hidden drainage system prevent a wet crawl space.
If you have water in your crawl space, we can install the right waterproofing products for your home, including:
Perimeter drainage: Installing a crawl space drainage system can prevent flooding and water damage caused by groundwater and surface water problems.
Drainage matting: CleanSpace crawl space drainage matting improves drainage when installed under the CleanSpace vapor barrier. The dimpled surface helps carry water to the perimeter drainage or sump pump located at the lowest area of the crawl space. CleanSpace drainage matting also softens the floor and increases the durability of the encapsulation system.
Sump pump: Water collected through the drainage pipe is directed to a powerful crawl space sump pump. We offer a variety of sump pump options, including a battery backup pump that keeps working even when the power goes out.
Dehumidifier: A high-performance SaniDry™ dehumidifier will dry out the damp crawl space and automatically maintain the ideal humidity level. Controlling crawl space humidity helps prevent mold growth, musty odors, wood rot, and pest infestations.
