Crawlspace Waterproofing Methods:

  • Placing a drainage mat to keep the space dry and clean
  • Add a dehumidifier to control high levels of moisture

Why A Clean Crawlspace is Important

There are several reasons why keeping this space under your home that you rarely venture into dry. First, standing water in this dark, confined space is a great place for pests like rodents and insects to thrive. A clean, protected crawlspace will deter pests from setting up a home here.

Next, if the crawlspace is dry and the humidity levels are maintained it will help you with your heating and cooling costs. A damp, cold space will make it harder to heat your home's interior as the crawlspace is just under your floorboards, while a humid and warm crawl space will make your ac run more to keep up with cooling.

Lastly, it is shown that homes that have a drainage mat installed under the home have a better resale value. It is one less thing the new homeowner has to worry about.
