Damp Crawlspace

damp crawlspace GA AL TNCan you remember the last time you ventured into your crawlspace? Most likely, your home's crawlspace is a small, dark and musty area that you only use for holiday decorations or storage. If you rarely go down to your crawlspace, you may not realize possible water damage has occurred.

A damp crawlspace can cause many problems, not just for your house, but for your family. Excess water can cause floor joists to rot and promote mold growth and pest infestations. Some types of mold can cause serious health issues and should be taken care of quickly. Let Southeastern Home Solutions dry and seal your crawlspace with waterproofing systems to protect your home and family.
