Crawl Space Problem Signs in Knoxville

Although it’s understandable to want to ignore crawl space problem signs at your Knoxville home, addressing problems as soon as they are noticed saves repair time and money.   

Standing water in your crawl space can lead to serious problems very quickly. Mold can start growing on damp surfaces in 24 to 48 hours. So, knowing what’s going on beneath your floors is very important. 

Wood rot in your crawl space is the last thing you want to see since it can spread quickly. Since beams and joists are made of wood, wood rot puts the structural integrity of your home at risk. Inside the crawl space, look for wood that seems to be crumbling or even for flat mushroom-like bodies on the wood.  

Knoxville homeowners are no stranger to humid weather, but humidity in your crawl space can lead to several severe issues, including condensation and mold. Crawl space encapsulation is typically your best solution in these cases. 

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Knoxville ?

Although crawl space damage can occur because of several factors, the stack effect is one of the main reasons for problems in your Knoxville home. The climate in Knoxville is hot and muggy, it’s this humid weather that contributes to the problem in your crawl space. 

The stack effect describes how hot, humid outside air is sucked in through crawl space vents and travels throughout the home. At one time, it was believed open vents allowed air to flow in and out easily. We now know this isn’t true. Open vents allow humid outside air in, trapping it and causing a number of problems. This humid air then moves through the living areas of your home and out through the roof, taking along with it dust and mold spores along the way.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Knoxville

Our team of experts at AFS will determine your specific crawl space problem and suggest the best solutions for your home. Crawl space encapsulation is one common repair method and involves a wall and floor barrier, waterproofing, and in some cases, a sump pump and energy-efficient dehumidifier. With Knoxville’s year-round humid weather, it’s important to protect your crawl space properly. Working with AFS will ensure a clean, dry, usable crawl space for years to come.
