As a homeowner, you must understand the importance of preventing moisture problems from happening under your home. When water gets inside, it has nowhere to go if you don't have the right waterproofing systems in place, and this can lead to expensive damage. Water here can cause wooden support beams, floor joists, staircases, banisters and anything else made of wood to rot, warp, and decay. When this happens, you will experience problems with the structural integrity of your home, and all the rotting wood can be inviting to unwanted pests, such as termites.
Additionally, water under a home can lead to the growth of harmful mold or mildew. It's been proven that this dangerous fungus can cause a variety of health problems in individuals of all ages. It can cause: headaches, cold/flu-like symptoms, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, fatigue, asthma attacks, bronchitis, respiratory problems, and other serious medical conditions.
