It is really important to pay attention to the crawl space in your home because it can stabilize the entire house - or it can wreak havoc on your home and your family's health. When foundation cracks or other issues occur, water can enter the crawlspace and really start to cause some serious problems for the home and your family. When you maintain your crawlspace and keep it protected from moisture, you improve the overall integrity of your foundation and the rest of your house.
Since foundation cracks often mean crawlspace moisture, it should be no shock that crawl space foundation issues can be the cause of many crawl space moisture problems. When your foundation settles and shifts, it can cause the formation of cracks. These foundation cracks provide an opportunity for water to enter your home. This issue is often caused by shifting soil or extra water in the ground around the foundation. It is possible that any pooling water that you see anywhere on your property can also cause crawlspace moisture issues. The water looks for somewhere to go and eventually seeps through the porous concrete. This moisture then leads to moisture in your crawlspace. Eventually this weakens your home's very foundation.
On top of that, this crawlspace moisture can also cause mold and mildew to grow - which is an obvious health hazard for you and your family. You may not know it, but most of the air that you breathe when you are in your home comes from the crawlspace! When mold and mildew has begun growing in your crawlspace, it can also be in the very air you and your family are breathing every day.
