Why You Should Waterproof Your Crawlspace
You may not spend a whole lot of time thinking about waterproofing your crawlspace in Maryland, but it is a vital area of your home. Your crawlspace, though quite discreet, contains the main support beams, utility lines, and water pipes making it important to keep clean and dry with the help of waterproofing.
Keeping Out Moisture!
It isn’t unusual for the crawlspace to house older water pipes that could be prone to leaking. A leaky pipe in a crawlspace spells disaster. Likewise, water seepage can also pose quite an issue for crawlspaces that have not been encapsulated. With how little time you probably spend in your crawlspace, you may not even notice until it is too late. This allows water damage to greatly harm the crawlspace and everything that is kept in there.
Keeping Out Mold!
Mold has always been known to thrive in dark and moist areas. It just so happens that a crawlspace with excess moisture fits that description. One of the worst things about mold is that once it is there, it will quickly spread and contaminate the floor and walls of your home. If that wasn’t bad enough, mold can also cause health issues and symptoms including headaches, dizziness, nausea, sneezing, and more.
Keeping Out Pests!
Not only does waterproofing keep the moisture and mold out, it keeps pests out too! Everything from rodents to termites are easily find their way into a crawlspace that isn’t waterproofed or sealed. In fact, a wet crawlspace is more likely to invite pests right into your home. If the grossness of having these unwelcomed guests in your home isn’t enough, these pests can do quite a bit of damage to your property too.
