Better air quality
Crawlspaces are dark and cool, they are a perfect place to breed mold and mildew once water gets added into the mixture. Once mold and mildew start to grow in the crawlspace it will begin to affect the air quality in your home meaning it will not be pure and clean to breathe in; which can lead to upper respiratory health issues over time. Waterproofing that space can get rid of that potential problem and give you better air quality both in the crawl space and the rest of your home as well.
Does not allow pests and insects to make a home in your home
Dark damp places are exactly the types of environments that pests and wood-eating insects look for to make a home out of. When you start improving your crawlspace, it gets rid of one of these factors which means your crawlspace is no longer a desirable place for these pests and insects to call home. Water-proofing also means that you will be taking away part of the existing pest’s life source which will either drive them out or kill them.
Prevents against structural damage
When water gets on the wood that holds up your home it is going to sink into the wood and begin to weaken it. Over time this means that the structure of your home will weaken which can lead to you having to pay thousands of dollars in repairs.
Whether you are trying to make your home more energy-efficient, get rid of annoying pests and insects, or improve air quality in the home, waterproofing your crawlspace is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to do this and have more comfortable living conditions in general.
