Crawl Space Waterproofing Nashville TN
But the beauty of the river comes with humidity and the threat of flooding.

Homes with crawl spaces are on the rise, making up almost 17% of newly built homes. When the Cumberland River rises, the water from the river may flood the space underneath your home. Better underneath than inside, right? Well, maybe at first. But the water damage under the home can also lead to mold growth, pest infestations, and structural damage that will eventually cause issues inside the home, too.

So, it’s better to get the crawl space waterproofed than have to fix all that later (especially dealing with pests!).

What is Crawl Space Waterproofing?

Crawl Space waterproofing includes a collection of services used to prevent water damage and mold growing in your crawl space. The air in your crawl space is part of the air that enters your home and maybe even most of that air depending on where your HVAC is located. Waterproofing is both a preventative and restorative solution – meaning you can waterproof your crawl space before or after a crawl space disaster occurs.

Getting crawl space waterproofing done before you have any crawl space issues can save you a lot of time and money.

Floods happen every year in the Nashville area. Water damage in the crawl space can cause immediate and long-term issues for your home. Immediately, you may notice water building up in the crawl space and flooding that can damage yards and even inside the home. Water in the crawl space, if not completely removed, can also cause long-term damage including mold growth, musty smells, pest infestation, and even structural damage.

Whether you plan to stay in your home forever, or plan to sell within the next few years, crawl space damage can be devastating to your home. We recommend getting your crawl space waterproofed before the damage occurs.

Nashville, TN has an average daily humidity of 70%

Don’t take the chance on your family’s health.


In Nashville, especially, residents need to be checking their crawl space regularly. Nashville, TN, has an average daily humidity of 70%. That means even in the winter, there is humidity lurking about, waiting to strike. The humidity can easily get trapped under your home without proper ventilation and waterproofing. That trapped water leads to mold growth, pest infestation, and structural damage over time.

Mold not only smells bad but is also bad for your health. Mold growing underneath your home makes its way into the air you breathe, reducing your home air quality. According to experts, mold in the home can lead to sneezing, coughing, itching, difficulty breathing, headaches, and more. For children or adults with allergies or asthma, the symptoms can be worse and even life-threatening. Symptoms get worse over time and can even cause toxicity depending on the type of mold.
