Water in Your Crawl Space 

Water presence in your crawl space often goes unnoticed until symptoms like increased indoor humidity or musty smells arise in your living areas. 

When water infiltrates your crawl space, it’s a symptom of underlying problems that, if ignored, could threaten the structural soundness of your house. 

Alpha Foundations specializes in identifying and resolving the root causes of water in crawl spaces. We offer modern, lasting solutions for complete crawl space encapsulation

By the end of this page, you’ll understand the ways water can enter your crawl space, the importance of prompt intervention, and how Alpha Foundations can help. 

What Is Crawl Space Water? 

Water in a crawl space refers to any unwanted moisture beneath your house, ranging from visible standing water to less noticeable dampness in the soil or crawl space surfaces. This moisture causes several issues, including: 

Ignoring these signs can lead to deteriorating conditions. Alpha Foundations effectively addresses these challenges, removing existing water and preventing future moisture buildup. 

Why Your Home Has Water in the Crawl Space 

Water can enter your crawl space in several ways, especially due to its location. Common causes include: 

  • Open Vents: Moist air entering through open crawl space vents leads to condensation. Over time, a ton of water droplets are on all the surfaces below your home. 
  • Seasonal Weather: Heavy rain and humid air can infiltrate your crawl space throughout the year and make the space feel moist. 
  • Faulty Drainage: Inadequate grading, gutter issues, clogged drains, and lack of moisture barriers can cause water infiltration. 
  • Plumbing Issues: Leaky pipes, water heater breakdowns, and minor leaks in supply lines can lead to water accumulation
  • Poor Waterproofing Measures: Outdated or poorly installed waterproofing or drainage can allow water to seep through walls and floors. 

Alpha Foundations conducts detailed inspections to identify all contributing factors, ensuring our solutions thoroughly tackle the causes of water in your crawl space.
