Crawl Space Repair

Our team at Rhinolift offers professional crawl space stabilization and waterproofing services for homeowners in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Our team has the experience to keep your home safe and dry no matter the weather. 


Your crawl space is responsible for more than half of the air circulating through your home. This means that any toxins in this area (such as mold or mildew, pest droppings, and musty odors) can come up through the floor and into the air you breathe.

Microbials and critters only need two things to flourish: a humid environment, and organic materials. Since your crawl space is mainly composed of wooden beams, mold can rapidly deteriorate the underside of your home. Animals can also get inside and attract their friends. Any damage in your crawl space will eventually extend to the rest of your home in one way or another!

Crawl Space Problem Signs and Symptoms

It can be concerning if you’re experiencing crawl space problems like mold, mildew, wood rot, sagging floors, and standing water. However, there’s no need to worry! Our licensed professionals help you assess and address any crawl space issues. Check our list of common symptoms below.

Sagging Floors

Weak support beams or moisture issues in crawl spaces can cause floors to sag. Strengthening supports and addressing moisture are essential for stability.

Standing Water

Moisture leads to mold, wood rot, and higher energy costs. Vapor barriers, improved drainage, and dehumidification are effective solutions.

When To Call RhinoLift

Water Damage

Things such as open crawl space vents, clogged or malfunctioning sump pumps, or plumbing failures can all lead to your crawl space being flooded with water. When your dry and clean crawl space becomes damp and humid, it can kickstart mold and mildew growth and be the perfect environment for unwanted pests. There could also be signs of dry rot or excess condensation, which are directly related to water. Schedule your free estimate today.

Crawl space Water Damage

Structural Compromises

If your crawl space is exposed to large amounts of outside damage or constant flooding, chances are your support beams will become less effective. It is important to have routine inspections and maintenance on the systems that lie within your crawl space to ensure they remain in proper working order.

Crawl Space Stabilization

To Reduce High Humidity Levels

When the outside air comes into your crawl space, it warms up and creates humidity which leads to a slew of problems. Things such as mold and mildew, condensation, and dry rot can all severely damage the support joists in your home. It’s best to seal any open crawl space vents to prevent these things from happening.

By installing airtight covers, you can guarantee that no water vapor is able to get in and cause problems in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
