Are you in need of crawl space waterproofing services? Many owners of homes with crawlspaces are not aware that they need these services until the damage to their homes is extensive. Identifying moisture issues in your crawl space is a great way to ensure that you can catch moisture problems early. Regular crawl space inspections will help you identify these issues.
The following are some ways that crawl space inspections can help.
- It will ensure that your crawl space remains clean and dry
The crawl space is not a space that is frequently explored by the residents of any home. Moisture problems in these spaces are therefore likely to go without notice. They are often noticed when the problem is in advanced stages.
Regular inspections can help to identify moisture problems in the early stages of development. A professional can identify the subtle and less obvious signs of a moisture problem and help you seek solutions. This ensures that the crawl space remains clean and dry.
- It will help you find out the true reason behind the tilting floor
There are many reasons why homes develop tilting floors. Sagging floors can be hazardous. They can cause people to trip and fall. Severely weakened floors can even result in people or furniture tumbling right through them.
One of the most common causes of tilting floors in homes with crawl spaces is moisture problems in the crawl space. An inspection of the space can help you determine whether this is the case in your home. This ensures that you can apply an efficient solution.
- It will help you determine the cause of the cracking dry wall or plaster
Are you struggling with repeatedly repairing cracking of plaster or dry wall in your home? The solution to your problem may be in your crawl pace. An inspection of your crawl space may reveal problems such as the shifting of the soil beneath the home. This may be causing your walls to shift and the dry wall or plaster to crack.
- It will help to reveal termite infestations
A termite problem can result in damage to the structure of your home. These insects have a preference for damp and rotting timber. It therefore won’t help to perform a termite treatment if you have an underlying water problem. An inspection will not only reveal the infestation but also the water problem. This will ensure you invest in crawl space waterproofing to help prevent a repeat infestation.
