Crawlspaces aren’t areas homeowners spend much time in or thinking about, but they are integral to the structural integrity of your home. Here are some signs to look out for from basement waterproofing pros in Monmouth County that indicate that your basement crawlspace requires closer inspection, maintenance or repairs.
Signs that you need to call in the basement repair professionals
- Your floors are sagging: If your floors are squeaking or your wall-mounted décor is rattling as you walk past, your floors are starting to sag. This is a warning sign that your foundation isn’t supporting your home properly or that a water leak is rotting your floor and its best that you call in basement repair specialists to properly inspect it.
- Puddles and standing water: Poor drainage or leaking pipes could be the issue here, and this will lead to a weakened foundation as well as mold problems if left untreated. A water egress inspection will help determine where the water is coming from and the best way to put a stop to it.
- Mold, mildew and musty smells: Water plus a warm home equals the perfect environment for mold and mildew. Not only does this create a musty, unpleasant smell, it can also affect the health of you and your family. The mold should be removed by mold remediation specialists for safety reasons and to get the cleanest results, and the source of the water should be properly repaired to ensure the mold doesn’t reoccur.
- Higher energy bills: Moisture leaking into your crawlspace causes the humidity levels in your home to increase, so your AC will have to work harder to properly filter air and cool your home. If you’ve noticed a recent spike in your energy bill that you can’t explain, or that your AC is working much harder than normal, it’s time to call in basement waterproofing specialists for an inspection.
