The effects from a flooded crawlspace doesn’t just stay in the crawlspace. Crawlspaces are enclosed and protected from air circulation and sunlight. After a crawlspace becomes flooded, an abundance of water and dampness tend to remain in your crawlspace unless you take the necessary steps to repair the flooding of water. Crawlspaces are the last destination for almost any opening source of water flooding.
