A dry crawl space is essential for protecting a home and its foundation from water. Waterproofing a crawl space can help prevent mildew or mold growth, water damage, and even insect damage. A reliable drainage system will help a crawl space remain dry and will prevent the collection of excess moisture, helping avoid costly crawl space repairs in the future.
Crawl Space Waterproofing Methods
Several methods are used to waterproof a crawl space; the most common one is installing a Hydraway Drainage System.
In this system, a sump pump is installed to direct water away from the crawl space. Hydraway systems guide excess water to a sump pump, and it is pushed away from your home’s foundation to prevent damage.
A backup solution, in the form of a backup battery case and charger, is also recommended to ensure continuous operation.
