Water, Water, Everywhere
Before a home inspector enters a crawlspace, they will remove the access panel and take a quick look with a flashlight.
Finding water under a house is not a good thing.
Swimming in a pool is great exercise. Creating a Koi pond can bring a sense of calm to the garden, but finding water under a house is not what a homeowner wants to hear and stress levels rise.
Standing water and saturated soil in a crawl space can create undesirable conditions for the structural integrity and air quality in a home.
- Uneven and sloping floors
- Foundation cracks, settlement
- Mold growth and odors
- Pipe corrosion
- Air duct damage
As you can see, water can be a good thing or not so good of a thing.
