What Happens If My Crawl Space Floods
One serious flood in your area can result in a flooded crawl space and serious structural damage. If your foundation is cracked or has experienced damage, it’s easy for your crawl space to take on water after one good rainfall in Charleston. After your crawl space has flooded, you may need to face standing water or huge amounts of water being absorbed into the dirt around your foundation.
How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Crawl Space
To start with, it's essential to understand where the water is getting into your crawl space. Where are the openings in your foundation and what needs repair? The most important first step is to remove all water before it causes severe damage to your walls and structural piers. Water can stagnate in your insulation or foundation piers which can prompt musty odors, weak wood or dangerous structural damage.
