Common Crawl Space Restoration causes in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Star, Meridian Idaho
Crawl Space Water intrusion
Water is one of the most common issues found in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Star, Caldwell and Eagle crawlspaces. Most people throughout the Treasure Valley are unaware of how much clay we have in our soil. Due to the heavy amounts of clay in our Treasure Valley soil, we have poor water drainage. When heavy rains occur, the rain saturates the heavy clay soil which can lead to instances of water pooling against your home’s foundation and eventually seeping in to your crawlspace. Another common issue which is prevalent throughout Boise, Meridian and Star is the presence of caliche.
Caliche soil layers can cause ground water to infiltrate your crawlspace
Caliche (or more commonly referred to here in Boise as ‘hard pan’) is material that was dissolved by water from the soil surface and then precipitated down to form a hard, almost concrete like, layer that will ruin any shovel or pick you use on it.
In areas like Meridian, large sections of hard pan caliche exist and when rainfall occurs, the rain permeates through the soil until it hits the hard pan layer. Since the caliche layer is hard and does not absorb water, the water hits the hard pan layer and then runs off and collects elsewhere. Unfortunately, the water can collect under your house causing ground water to appear under the vapor barrier in your crawl space. The water eventually brakes the vapor barrier thus allowing visible water to be present. Don’t let this happen to you! Every Spring and Fall, make sure to take a peek in your crawl space with a flashlight and look for any hint of water. If you see any water, give Master Restoration a call. With 24/7 service, we will be there to help you.
Removing the crawl space water in your Boise area home
Master Restoration Idaho will start by diagnosing where the crawl space water is coming from. Whether it is an underground spring, water collecting from a caliche layer, poor drainage, or even a broken pipe or sewage backup, we will find the source of the water first and then develop a solution to stop the water from entering your crawlspace. Once the source of the water has been determined, we then can address the water by pumping it out, using fans to dry the space thoroughly, assess any mold growth that may have occurred, and then instal a new vapor barrier to keep the moisture from rising up from your crawl space soil.
