Crawl spaces can show signs of damage in many ways. Knowing how to identify the symptoms and taking early action can help you avoid expensive issues in the future. A majority of crawl space damage is caused by water intrusion. Water is a very destructive force when it comes to crawl spaces and can cause extensive damage to your home.
Crawl space damage can also lead to dangerous radon gases entering the space and impacting your family’s health. To keep radon from entering your crawl space, certain repairs may be needed to keep your crawl space clean and healthy.
Crawl space damage can also create very serious health-related issues. If water damage is left untreated, the following problems can arise:
- Bug and pest infestation
