:049 Wet Crawlspaces

Suggested Review – :040, :041, :047, :048

1:5:10:049 Tip: Wet crawlspaces are more likely to have pest and fungal infestations. The water may also undermine the foundation causing it to slip. All of these can lead to costly repairs under your home. It is best to catch these types of problems early.

Tomorrow I will have information on correcting damp crawlspaces.

Additional Information

Crawlspaces can be dangerous places. During my career I have inspected over 1000 crawlspaces. Many had conditions that were extremely dangerous.

If you don’t know how to safely enter and inspect a crawlspace, you should leave it to professionals.
