Water in your Crawl Space

dark crawl space under home with standing water Tip!... don't forget to inspect your crawl space after a storm.

After a storm have you notice an odor or a musty smell through your home, but can't find the cause or damage inside the home? You may have standing water in your crawl space.

Water can get into the crawl space many ways.  Usually by a broken pipe lines from under the kitchen or bathroom areas; however, water can also get in crawl spaces from rain and flooding outside depending if your home is on foundation or stilts.

Sometimes we don't realize when we change the outside landscape in the front or back yards that water can then be accidentally deferred into the crawl space.  Not knowing there's standing water for a long period of time can then produce an odor or a musty smell and other damages. *keep garden beds away from the home.

During the rainy days it's best to check your crawl space to make sure no water is building up.
