sraiange solutions for crawlspacesDrainage solutions for crawl spaces prevent water seepage from causing issues such as mold, mildew, wood rot, and foundation damage. These issues can practically destroy a home, especially considering how long they go unnoticed by homeowners. The crawl space isn’t exactly an area of the home we frequent, but that doesn’t change the effects it creates in the main living areas. Protecting the crawl space with the right drainage solutions saves your home from damage and your family from problems with their health.

Drainage solutions exist for both dirt and concrete slab crawl spaces.
 

Sump Pump

A sump pump works with a sump basin to pump water out of the basement. The sump pump prevents sewage problems, catches rainwater, and water from leaks and moisture, and otherwise ensures crawl space water does not interfere with your home stability or family’s health.

Sump pumps are commonly used in basements prone to flooding and dampness-related problems. Therefore, a sump pump may not benefit your home. The experts at Southern Crawl Space can inspect your unit to determine if sump pump installation is beneficial to your drainage needs.

 

Perimeter Drain

A perimeter drain is ideal for crawl spaces with major structural damage. The drain is installed underground around the home’s perimeter, preventing additional water seepage that can ruin your home. This drainage solution is yet another unnecessary in every home, but our experts can help evaluate your basement to decide the best option for your needs.

 

Other Steps to Keep Water Out of Your Crawl Space

In addition to the solutions above, homeowners will experience fewer water-related problems when their gutters are clean and free of debris and when their windows are free of defects. Keep an eye on the gutters, windows, and other areas of the home near the foundation to ensure they are not causing crawl space problems.
