Lexington Crawl Space Waterproofing

The crawl space of your home is not an area that most homeowners think about often. However, it is an area that may affect the stability of your home, and the health of your family. A lot of homes in our area have issues with moisture or water entering this area. How do you know if that is happening? You may smell a musty or mildew odor, or actually notice mold on the walls or floor of the crawl space. A more obvious indication is actual standing water on the floor. If you do notice these signs, your next step can be confusing. There is a lot of information out there, but the Lexington crawl space waterproofing experts at United Structural Systems (USS) can guide you in the next steps to take. 

Crawl Space Waterproofing Solutions

Our experts can evaluate your unique situation and recommend the best methods to deal with any moisture problems you may be having. The Lexington crawl space waterproofing team may utilize some or all of the following methods:

  • Perimeter drains: This method deals with any moisture before it enters the crawl space by directing the water away from the area.
  • Sump pumps: This method is utilized when the moisture is in the crawl space area. The sump constantly collects and pumps the moisture out of the area.
  • Dehumidifier: A dehumidifier will dry out a crawl space and keep the area at a preset humidity level.

Moisture in your crawl space can cause damage to your home and can also adversely affect your family’s health with the possibility of mold growth.
