Crawl Space Drainage
Crawl spaces have many challenges because rainwater and groundwater can enter easily through vents and cracks and remain there. A flooded crawl space can cause many issues, especially mold and mildew, which is a severe health hazard.
In the Charlotte area, the natural topography directs water into crawl spaces and under foundation walls, increasing the risk of a flooded crawl space and soil erosion.
If your crawl space has standing water, Dry Otter provides premium crawl space drainage and repair, and we offer free inspections.
Why do I need drainage in my crawlspace?
Many crawl spaces have groundwater seeping in. When this happens, a crawl space drainage system of French drains is necessary to collect the water and direct it out of the crawlspace via a sump pump or gravity-fed exit system.
A crawl space drainage system will keep your crawl space dry and help reduce structural problems due to soil erosion.
What is a French drain?
A French drain consists of a ditch or channel dug around the crawlspace’s inside perimeter with a pitch or slope with a perforated pipe and gravel on top.
The drain directs water toward the sump pump or a special place for the water to exit by gravity.
