What Happens If My Crawl Space Floods

All it takes is one serious flood for your crawl space to experience flood and serious structural damage. If your foundation walls are cracked or if the structure has recently suffered damage, it only takes a moment for your crawl space to flood after experiencing a deluge in Columbia. If your crawl space floods, you’ll be left with standing water around your foundation or excessive amounts of water being absorbed into the soil.

How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Crawl Space

The first thing you need to know is how the water is getting into your crawl space. Where are the vulnerable spots that need repair? You’ll need to get rid of all the water in your crawl space before your walls or structural piers suffer extreme damage. Water that is left to linger in your insulation or foundation piers can cause dangerous structural damage, weak wood, and uncomfortable musty odors.
