SURFACE WATER PENETRATION

A common way for water to enter the home is through surface water penetration. Surface water penetration is when water begins to “pool up” and stand around your home. This problem is caused by large amounts of water running off the roof, or poor yard grading. When water starts pooling up around your home, it finds its way into your home through any weak spots.

 

GROUNDWATER PENETRATION

Ground water penetration is when the levels of moisture in the clay surrounding your home start to build up, leaving the excess water with no place to go. This water build up invades your home through where the wall and the footer meet. Then, this water appears on the soil in the crawl space. This water can saturate the soil, and in the worst cases, it will leave standing water throughout the crawl space.

 

HUMIDITY

The most common cause for moisture in your crawl space is something very simple: humidity. Humid air can cause water to invade your home. Humidity can cause mold growth, mildew, or musty smells.
