What Happens If My Crawl Space Floods

A flooded area in your home is never a good thing, but water in a crawl space can lead to severe structural damage. When your foundation cracks or encounters damage, it is easy for your crawl space to take on water when there is heavy rainfall in North Charleston. After your crawl space has flooded,you’re probably stuck with standing water or heavy soil absorption.

How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Crawl Space

First, it’s important to understand where the water is coming from. Where are the openings in your foundation and what repairs need to be accomplished? Then, removing the water quickly before there is serious damage to your walls and structural piers is essential. Water can be absorbed into the insulation or foundational piers which can lead to musty smells, deteriorating wood or critical structural damage.
