What Is Crawl space Damage?
Crawl space damage refers to structural, mechanical, or cosmetic issues affecting the crawl space beneath a home. Common types of crawl space damage include moisture issues, wood rot, pest infestations, foundation damage, and structural damage, which can all compromise a home’s safety, stability, and livability.
What If I Don't Fix My Crawl space Damage?
If you don’t fix your crawl space damage, you may experience various problems, such as structural damage to your home, which can lead to costly repairs. Moisture can also accumulate in the damaged crawl space, leading to mold growth, which can cause wood rot issues. Addressing crawl space damage as soon as possible is important to avoid these negative consequences.
Why Causes Water Issues?
One of the most common causes is poor drainage around the foundation of the home, which can lead to standing water and moisture accumulation in the crawl space. In addition, leaks in the plumbing or HVAC system can also contribute to water issues in the crawl space. Heavy rain or flooding can also cause water damage to the crawl space.
What Is A Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a device typically installed in a basement or crawl space to prevent water damage caused by flooding or excess moisture. The pump is designed to collect and remove accumulated water in a sump basin, usually located at the lowest point of the space. When the water in the basin reaches a certain level, the pump automatically turns on and pumps the water out of the space and away from the foundation of the building.
What Is Wood Rot?
Wood rot is a type of decay that affects wooden structures and objects. It is caused by certain types of fungi that consume the cellulose and lignin in the wood, which weakens its structure and can eventually cause it to break down completely. The fungi that cause wood rot require moisture to grow, which means that wood that is consistently exposed to water or damp conditions is particularly susceptible.
Are Inspections Free?
At RhinoLift, inspections are FREE! We will visit the customer’s property during our on-site inspection and assess the issues. We will examine the affected areas, take measurements, and ask questions to understand the situation completely. This process allows us to identify any underlying problems and provide the recommended repairs.
