Insects, rodents and mold all thrive in dark, moist spaces — and a perfect example of that is the crawl space beneath your home. The moisture that collects in crawl spaces can allow mildew and mold to grow, and the water can also damage the integrity of your home’s foundation and structure. With enough damage, it can even decrease your home’s property value.
What to Do About Water in Your Crawl Space
The best way to deal with a wet crawl space is to make sure to waterproof your crawl space before it gets to that point, and we can help out with that by using high-quality and top-rated products coupled with professional techniques to successfully reduce moisture and groundwater. Without crawl space waterproofing, your crawl space remains vulnerable to surface water.
A reliable sump pump system paired with an encapsulation system will remove and prevent any water and moisture found in your crawl space. Our GrateSump™ Sump Pump System is fully equipped with a sump pump and liner, alarm, floor drain and it can also include an additional battery backup system, so you never have to worry about drying out your crawl space or letting a plumbing leak go unnoticed.
The GrateSump™ also has an airtight lid that helps to keep the liner in place and the alarm will alert you, should any water from a plumbing leak or any other kind of leak reach the sump pump system, and the floor drain automatically takes care of any water from plumbing leaks.
Just having a liner won’t cut it and crawl spaces can remain wet for as long as months before a homeowner may notice, but with the GrateSump™ Sump Pump System installed, you won’t have to worry about a thing and your sump pump does all the work for you by protecting your crawl space. Our GrateSump™ Sump Pump Systems are also fully compatible with our CrawlShield™ Encapsulation System to ensure that your crawl space is always protected.
Crawl space drainage systems protect your crawl space and ensure there’s never any water or moisture that can damage your crawl space at any given time. Any standing water could cause a slew of problems but by installing a crawl space drainage system, we can direct any water into a GrateSump™ liner and sump pump system to remove the water from your crawl space.
We also have other crawl space installations that will help remove any evidence of water in your crawl space or basement including DimpleShield™ drainage matting, crawl space vent covers, CrawlShield™ encapsulation system and crawl space dehumidification systems, so that you never have to worry about water damage in your crawl space while you are unaware or away.
