Standing Water in the Crawl Space
Crawl spaces play a critical role in your home’s structure. They provide support at the very base level to help ensure the stability and security of your home. However, due to the very nature of crawl spaces and their location, they are subject to water intrusion. While the moisture may be somewhat minor, it can also be more extreme. When the latter happens, you may end up with standing water.
Any moisture or standing water in your crawl space should be addressed as soon as you notice it. When water is left for too long, it can result in mold growth, damage to the support beams, and pest infestations. Promptly addressing water intrusion is even more critical when you have a large amount of standing water in your crawl space.
