At Nixon Cleaning and Restoration LLC, we’ve helped countless homeowners address problematic damp, leaky crawlspace areas under their houses. Based on decades of experience, we can often spot the dire need for crawlspace waterproofing long before homeowners realize there’s an issue brewing beneath their feet.

  • Mold Growth. If you spot dark gray, black, or white fuzzy mold mushrooming on any surface, immediate waterproofing is in order before it spreads through floor joists. Mold releases toxic spores and compromises wood.
  • Musty Smells. That unpleasant, damp, earthy smell means that excess moisture is present, as well as indicating a lack of ventilation. Both situations allow anaerobic bacteria to grow.
  • Pest Infestations. Termites, carpenter ants, stink bugs, and rodents are attracted to moist, humid crawlspace environments and can threaten stability or indoor air quality.
  • Foundation Cracks. Any cracks or gaps along poured concrete walls or dirt floors allow water intrusion from rain or melting snow, which pools inside the cavity.

Don’t delay crawlspace waterproofing services anymore. Our crews provide interior and exterior sealing, French drain systems, sump pump upgrades, dehumidification, and vapor barrier installation. Schedule an inspection so we can customize the right plan to transform your problematic crawlspace into a dry, safe storage haven that helps protect your home’s structural integrity. Contact us today.
