It is easy to overlook the crawlspace when it comes to the care and maintenance of your home. Out of sight, out of mind as the saying goes. While some property owners may use the crawlspace as storage or a point of access for performing repairs and maintenance on pipes and substructures, most rarely take a look beneath their homes. Often, this is because they are afraid of what they might find. Crawl spaces are generally thought of as dark, musty, and dirty, and many accept that as the natural order of things. However, with proper care a crawl space should generally be a clean and healthy environment.
Crawlspaces are generally open and exposed to the elements, which contributes to many problems ranging from pests making their home beneath yours, to rot, mold and mildew growth, and water damage. These can all pose a risk of structural damage to your home, as well as lead to health hazards that affect occupants inside the building. There are a number of ways to correct problems as well as prevent future issues. This includes ensuring proper drainage to keep water from seeping into your crawlspace, and encapsulating the crawl space to minimize its exposure to the elements.
Crawl Space Repairs
A crawlspace that has suffered from the problems stated above may require structural damage repairs. Rotted wood, compromised beams, and other areas of the crawlspace that have been damaged will need to be replaced, and additional supports may need to be added to correct sagging floors or sloping homes. Our team of foundation experts will assess the full extent of the damage and prepare a plan for repairing and restoring the crawlspace to optimal condition for the stability and structural integrity of your home.
Home Air Quality
The condition of your crawl space can impact the environment within your home. Air can rise from the crawl space into your home. That means that any unpleasant odors, mold, mildew, and bacteria growing in your crawl space can find its way indoors. This is part of the reason why maintaining a crawl space is so vital. At Galveston Foundation repair, our crawlspace recovery service helps you keep your crawlspace free from problems and enjoy a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment.
