You may notice that the first floor of your home has un-even floors that appear to be sagging. If so, there is a very good chance your home is damaged by an excessive moisture problem in the area below your home. If the crawl space beneath the your home hasn’t been sealed off or waterproofed, then water seepage will easily get inside your foundation and manifest a number of potential problems.
Water collecting below your house may result in wooden structural elements experiencing rot, decay, and warping. This type of damage will cause the beams and floor boards supporting your home to become weak. Ultimately, they will have trouble maintaining the weight of your home, which will always create sagging, uneven floors.
The common signs of excess moisture under your home:
- Stagnant pools of water lying against the footing
- Living areas smell musty or moldy
- Rotting wood or structures
- The presence of termites, roaches, and other pests
