“Failure to address the source of the water/moisture and correct it is a recipe for disaster. It only puts a Band-Aid on the problem, leading to more costly repairs down the road.”
Protecting your home or property from water and moisture problems starts with identifying the source(s) of water and addressing it. An interior waterproofing system sometimes referred to as French drains or a perimeter drainage system, is a proven, cost-effective way to deal with water intrusion into a crawl space.
The intrusion of water or moisture into a crawl space can cause many problems. These problems can be detrimental to the structural integrity of a home, as well as a decrease in value. These problems include, but are not limited to:
- Mold growth
- Structural wood rot of your home
- Poor indoor air quality
- Increase pest or rodent activity
- Increase strain on your HVAC system
Stopping the water or moisture intrusion into the crawl space needs addressing before any problems can be corrected. Failure to address the source of the problem and correct it is a recipe for disaster, and in short, only putting a Band-Aid on the problem, leaving the homeowner with more costly repairs down the road!
If you are experiencing water or moisture problems in your crawl space or have had a company who didn’t address the source of your crawl space problems, contact AVS today to schedule a comprehensive inspection.
