Many homeowners think musty, unpleasant odors simply come with the territory of owning a house with a basement. While they are common, they are not normal or safe qualities for a healthy home.
These musty smells can be traced to a variety of causes. One of them is pest infestation. Pests like spiders, roaches, and rodents are drawn to dark, isolated areas. Along with their presence, droppings, shed skins, nesting material, and carcasses are breeding grounds for bacteria and odors.
Another typical cause is the presence of serious dampness, humidity, and mold or fungal growth. This growth is almost guaranteed to form in areas that have persistent, high levels of relative humidity. While they can be fairly benign, they do produce a recognizably musty smell that is both unpleasant and intense.
Recognizing the signs of foundation settling will save you from having to spend money on repairs that won’t solve anything until the foundation has been stabilized. If the problem is caught early on, it will also save your home from experiencing extreme structural damage.
Here are typical signs you’ll notice if your foundation is settling:
- Sticking doors and windows
- Drywall cracked
- Drywall nail pops
- Wall and floor gaps
- Sagging, uneven floors
- Cracking, tilting chimney
- Exterior brick cracks
The average height of a crawl space can measure anywhere between one to three feet high. As its name implies, this is just large enough to crawl around.
The main purpose of the crawl space is to store your home’s vital systems inside it. This includes your HVAC system, insulation, electrical wiring, plumbing, and floor support beams. These systems should not be wet whatsoever, which can be a problem when moisture inevitably does enter this space. The crawl space needs to be completely dry or you risk these systems breaking down and causing even more problems all around your house.
Our team at Ohio Basement Systems can help you protect your crawl space and home with various solutions including a vapor barrier, dehumidifier, and much more.
There are several options for repairing cracking, sinking concrete, including mudjacking and polyurethane foam injections.
Mudjacking is a traditionally used method that involves pumping cement slurry through large holes in the concrete. It fills the void between the concrete and soil, raising the slabs back into place. However, this is a messy, invasive, time-consuming, temporary measure that does not address the cause of the problem – unstable underlying soil.
Polyurethane injections, however, are lightweight, require smaller injection sites and less time to cure, and work two-fold to stabilize the soil and concrete slab. To learn more about how polyurethane foam injections can benefit your property, contact our team today to book a free inspection and estimate.
