Standing Water in a Crawl Space!
Do you notice an odor or a musty smell permeating through your home, but can't find any causes or damages inside the home? Was there a big rain fall that passed by recently? You may have standing water in your crawl space!
Water can get into the crawl space many ways. Usually by a broken pipe lines from under the kitchen or bathroom areas; however, water can also get in crawl spaces from rain and flooding outside!
Sometimes we don't realize when we change the outside landscape in the front or back yards that water can then be accidentally deferred into the crawl space. Not knowing there's standing water for a long period of time can then produce an odor or a musty smell and other damages.
During the rainy days it's best to check your crawl space to make sure no water is building up!
