If your crawl space develops a ground water leak, the extra water can do major damage. Yet how can you tell if you have a leaky crawl space in Appleton WI 54911? Here’s how:
Presence of water in the basement
If you see signs of water in your basement, then water is definitely coming in from somewhere. These signs might include wet wood, wet cement or cinderblock, or leaks along the floor or wall joint near the crawl space.
If you have a dirt crawl space, it can sometimes be difficult to spot water because the dirt will soak up water. Thus, the crawl space can look dry because the water is absorbing the slow leak. Only when the soil has absorbed all of the water that it can handle will the water begin to pool.
