Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing FAQs by Smoky Mountain Crawl Space Systems

Yes, professional crawl space waterproofing is worth the cost. It protects critical parts of your home (like the foundation and joists) from structural damage. Crawl space waterproofing also prevents mold growth—a major health hazard that can also cause property damage.

Adequate crawl space waterproofing can save you thousands in repairs.

Crawl space waterproofing seals off your foundation. As a result, outside air can’t leak in, and conditioned air can’t escape from your living spaces. With the conditioned air kept inside, your HVAC systems don’t need to work so hard to heat or cool the spaces.

However, you should keep in mind that crawl space waterproofing may not deliver the energy savings you seek if the insulation around your home isn’t the best.

If you notice a smell coming from your crawl space or basement, it’s best to call a professional crawl space company for an assessment. You may need mold remediation to combat mold growth. If the smell is due to pest activity, you may need to consider approaches to make the space less favorable for pests.

Cleaning up and waterproofing the space will eliminate the bad smells seeping into your living spaces.

The main sources of water in crawl spaces are groundwater and plumbing leaks. Runoff and accumulated rainwater can enter the space through cracks in the floor or walls. Plumbing leaks in your home can also direct water down to the space.
