PROBLEMS WITH A WET CRAWL SPACE IN MARION & FORT WAYNE, IN
Many homes in Indiana have problems with wet crawl spaces. If a
crawl space is wet and has a great deal of moisture in it, it can cause
a number of problems in the basement and throughout the entire home, including mold and mildew, poor air quality, wood rot, insect infestations, and higher energy bills. Some signs that
you are having issues with a wet crawlspace include the following:
- Mold and mildew - They grow best in a dark, moist environment.
- Musty odors - This indicates you've got poor air quality which may cause problems with allergies and asthma.
- High humidity - This causes many problems, including higher energy bills.
- Insect infestations - Earwigs, silverfish, centipedes, and termites love a dark, moist environment. So do the spiders that prey on them.
- Rotting wooden supports - These are caused by wood rot which thrives in moist air. If not corrected, this may lead to damaged floors and potential structural collapse.
- Rusting metal - Moist air and condensation on metal surfaces leads to development of rust. This negatively affects the heating/cooling equipment in your basement and structure of your home.

crawlspace, call the professionals at PFS Basement & Foundation Repair
