Crawl Space Waterproofing in Mableton, GA
During the rainy season in Georgia, as excess groundwater permeates area lawns, homeowners commonly notice water pooling in their crawl spaces. Downspout extensions can divert rainwater away from the base of your house to prevent your crawl space from collecting water, but rain is not the only cause of crawl space flooding. Leaky pipes, humidity, cracks in the walls and foundation, and humidity can all contribute to water pooling in your crawl space.
As air enters your home at ground level, humidity is trapped in your crawl space because of the difference between the external and internal temperatures of your home. If the outside air is humid, then crawl space vents and groundwater evaporation can trap even more moisture in your crawl space. This temperature difference is one of the reasons your home’s structural materials expand and contract over time, leading to cracks that allow water into your crawl space.
These moisture problems and more can be solved with remedial and proactive waterproofing services from DryShield. Contact us today to learn how we can help treat your basement or crawl space.
