SMART CRAWL SPACE DEBATE: Which is better?
Many people don’t have basements but have crawl spaces.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is among the top five health risks for individuals breathing the air that permeates from the crawl space into their living area. Knowing that up to 50% of the air in your home can come from below grade, it is important to ensure this area is dry and safe.
What Is a Crawl Space Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a device in your crawl space that helps prevent it from flooding. It has a basin and a pump that sucks the water through a tube and away from the house. Even a small amount of water can cause expensive damage, so it’s important to keep your crawl space and foundations dry.
It can also keep groundwater from building up underneath your crawlspace, damaging the foundations.
