  1. Moisture in the Crawl space can be due to occurrences such as floodwater, a burst water pipe, or leaks in the foundation which permit water to seep in from the surrounding soil. If you see moisture on the floor or walls of the crawlspace, this is a good reason to call an expert for help.
  2. Condensation on windows, walls and other areas of your crawl space is an indicator that the crawl space has an increased level of humidity. An expert in crawl space waterproofing can help you identify the source of the high humidity and fix the problem.
  3. Musty Smell are often associated with the growth of mold. The presence of an unusual musty smell in your crawl space could be an indicator that the space has a mold infestation. Since mold grows in humid areas, your crawl space could have too much moisture due to seepage of water through the floor or walls. When you call a crawl space waterproofing professional, they will also investigate whether the moisture is associated with issues such as flooding or a plumbing leak.
  4. Mold: If your crawl space has mold, you may also see patches of the fungus in addition to the musty smell. Mold is likely to be found hidden in areas that are frequently humid, such as wood joints and floor tiles.
  5. Dry Rot: A high level of moisture in your crawl space can cause wooden materials to experience dry rot. Dry rot occurs when the moisture content of wood exceeds 20 percent and wood-destroying fungi attack the wood. Signs of dry rot include rotting wooden floor tiles, stored timber, wooden items, and others.
  6. Foundation Problems: Water damage in the crawl space can also be evidenced by foundation problems such as bowing walls, cracking, decomposing wood, and rusting metal beams. When you experience such problems, you should urgently call a professional crawl space waterproofing contractor.
