A wet crawl space can eventually lead to a more lethal form, known as black mold. Having a wet and moldy crawl space, can undermine the solidity of your home, which can lead to rodent infestation, and many health problems as a result. Drying out your wet crawl space is easier than it sounds. In case of any emergency, you should never hesitate to contact a professional water restoration company. Here is a helpful and quick guide on how to safely dry your wet crawl space:

1. Stop Water From Entering the Crawl Space – Inspect your crawl space foundation for cracks to see if they’re the water source. You should immediately contact a professional if you find any foundation cracks, as they are a structural problem.

2. Dry Out the Crawl Space – You need to remove the moisture source and puddles. You should thoroughly check grading, drainage and gutters to make sure they’re not contributing to your wet crawl space.

3. Clean Up the Crawl Space – The first thing you need to do to clean up is to replace the wet insulation, and remove all debris. If you spot any traces of asbestos, you should never attempt to clean or go near it. This is a job best left to the pros.

4. Keep Your Crawl Space Moisture Free – The final step would be to install a sump pump to remove any excess moisture. Install an energy efficient crawl space dehumidifier to keep the space dry. Make sure to condition the crawl space air.
