Crawl space repair in Seattle
One of the most serious problems you can experience with your crawl space is structural failure. When your crawl space isn’t sealed, it may be exposed to high humidity. Eventually, excess water vapor leads to condensation, mold, and wood rot. That means if you have support beams made of wood in your basement and a humid crawl space, your home is at risk.
Signs of deteriorating supports
Most homeowners don’t typically check out their crawl space regularly for problems, so excess moisture is sometimes hard to spot. We recommend getting it annually inspected. You should also consider calling for an inspection if you experience any of the following symptoms in your home:
- Musty, unexplained odors
- Cracks in interior drywall
- Jammed doors and windows
- Sloping or warped wood floors
- Visible moisture in basement or on foundation
- Allergy-like symptoms with no known allergen present
