There are a few things that can cause flooding in a crawl space including:
- Hydrostatic pressure from the surrounding soil pushing inwards on your crawl space and foundation walls. This can push moisture through any cracks that are present.
- Burst pipes due to extreme weather changes or faulty plumbing — resulting in large amounts of water filling the space quickly.
- Slow leaks due to plumbing damage or poor construction. This can be hard to spot but can lead to wood rot and mold growth over time.
- Lack of waterproofing strategies in and around your property can allow normal moisture from rain or sprinkler systems to penetrate your crawl space.
Nobody wants to deal with flooding in their home or in a crawl space, and faulty plumbing almost always needs the attention of a professional plumber.
