WATER MEDIATION AND FLOODING IN PUGET SOUND
Proudly Named Angie´s List Super Service Award Winner for Three Years In a Row
You may not think much about your homes crawlspace until something goes wrong and requires the repairs of a professional contractor like Crawl Space Cleaning Pros. One of the most potentially hazardous issues we see in Seattle and Tacoma-area crawl spaces is flooding and standing water, which can often be prevented with the installation of a sump pump system to manage excess water.
Water in Crawl Space Can Cause Damage to Your Bothell Home
Water in a crawlspace can compromise the structural integrity of the foundation system of your home in Bothell, and can also create serious health concerns. Potential sources of crawl space water include:
- A naturally high groundwater table
- Incorrectly installed or directed gutter downspouts
- Flooding from a nearby body of water or stream
- Leakage from a sewer drain
Most often this problem can be prevented with a sump pump installation to manage the excess water by rerouting it away from your home.
In some cases a sump pump installation used in conjunction with a French drain installation to divert surface or groundwater away from your crawl space is an essential security measure for protecting your home from water damage.
Call for additional information about the importance of installing a sump pump and to determine if a French drain installation is right for your property.
Sump Pump Installation to Manage Excess Water in Bothell
A home that has water in the crawl space after heavy rain is a serious problem because it may lead to structural decay and harmful health conditions.
We provide professional water mediation services for homeowners in the Bothell area to extract excessive volumes of standing water in the crawl space. To prevent a recurrence we recommend a sump pump installation to evacuate ground water from your crawl space.
And in some cases such as perched groundwater, expanding soils or issues with hydrostatic pressure, we recommend a French drain installation to avoid costly damage to the structure of your home.
These are reasons why a sump pump is crucial for homes in our area:
- To avoid water seepage or flooding especially in areas with a naturally high water table
- To reduce dampness leading to mold and mildew
- To reduce potentially hazardous health conditions
- To avoid harmful structural integrity issues
We are professionals in crawl space encapsulation and vapor barriers, water mediation services, installation of sump pumps, and an effective French drain installation. Call to schedule an inspection or consultation!
French Drain Installation in Bothell Crawl Spaces
What is a French drain and how does it work in Bothell crawl spaces?
A French drain installation sets up a perimeter within the crawl space to capture and divert water into a pipe and gravel channeling system fed by gravity to a sump pump installation that purges it to a specific point of discharge.
How do you know if you need a French drain system to prevent water in a crawl space?
- Presence of perched ground water leading to mold and mildew growth
- Hydrostatic pressure issues resulting in compromised structural integrity
- Expansive ground soils that absorb undesirably large volumes of water
