Crawl Space Problems

Crawl spaces can provide easier access to a home's ductwork, utility cables, plumbing, and wiring. But crawl spaces in Kentucky typically have exposed dirt floors or are covered with a cheap plastic moisture barrier. Both of these conditions can contribute to problems in the crawl space, including moisture damage and mold. Excess moisture in the crawl space can contribute to significant comfort, health, and structural issues in the home.

There are symptoms to check for in the crawl space and inside the home that indicate crawl space repair is necessary.

Why Do Crawl Spaces Get Wet, Damp & Musty?

There are many possible sources for pooling water, mold growth, and high humidity.

Causes of crawl space water, moisture, and mold problems include:

  • Open vents in the foundation
  • Poor grading around the foundation
  • Water leaks or seepage through foundation cracks
  • Saturated soil and poor drainage around the foundation
  • Plumbing failures
  • Poorly functioning drainage or sump pump systems

Our professionals can provide feedback if you find signs of water or moisture damage or are unsure about what to do with a dirt crawl space. They'll explain if your crawl space needs encapsulation, waterproofing, or other repairs.
