Crawlspace And Water Damage
Water damage can occur in any area of your home. Out of all the places that water damage can arise, the worst of the worst has to be the crawlspace. Because there is hardly any room for you to sit in there, it makes it extremely challenging to get any work done in a crawlspace. The size can make it difficult to know if you’ve actually completed the task at hand.
Generally crawlspaces are ALREADY a cold, damp, dark area. If you’re going to choose one spot to prevent from water damage in your home, this is it. This area should be kept as dry as possible. If you find it essential, get a dehumidifier. This will ensure that the area stays below or above a certain level so that mold does not start/continue to grow down there. Water damage could very quickly consume this area and start to take over other areas of the home, and because this is an area that will always be there, you should stay on top of it.
Water damage is not your only interest in a situation like this. Mold growth is bound to happen in an area like this, especially if water damage is involved. Mold comes with a ton of health risks and more cleanup that is completely unwanted by any home/business owners.
As you can see, water damage is not something you want to fool around with, especially when mold comes in the picture.
