What is Crawl Space Drainage?

Crawl space drainage refers to systems and products used to redirect, collect, and remove water from crawl spaces. 

Excess moisture is a common problem in Western Colorado crawl spaces due to factors like landscape irrigation, snowmelt pooling around the home’s perimeter, and heavy snowfall in the winter.  

Over time, this moisture leads to serious issues like wood rot, mold growth, musty odors, and pest infestations. An effective crawl space drainage system captures water quickly and prevents these issues.  

Signs You Need Crawl Space Drainage 


To maintain your home, it’s crucial to promptly recognize any signs of crawl space damage. Detecting issues early minimizes damage and reduces repair costs, ensuring your crawl space remains well-maintained.

Here are indicators that your Grand Junction crawl space needs drainage improvements: 

Addressing these warning signs right away prevents further moisture damage and improves home comfort and air quality. Promptly call in experts like our team at Foundation Repair of Western Colorado for assistance.

Is Crawl Space Drainage Necessary?

Yes, a well-designed crawl space drainage system is a necessary investment for any home with a crawl space. Without drainage, crawl space water can quickly pool below your home without a way to exit. 

As the water pools, it is absorbed into the dirt floors and evaporates, creating ideal conditions for mold growth and wood decay. Over time, unchecked dampness threatens your home’s structural stability from the ground up. 

Rather than covering up water issues with subpar drainage products from hardware stores, address the root causes with our comprehensive encapsulation system. Transform your wet crawl space into a conditioned living space safely integrated with the rest of the home. 

What Are the Benefits of Crawl Space Drainage?

Integrating interior drainage and our CrawlDrain™ system into your crawl space delivers immense benefits: 

Happy family enjoying their home.

Eliminates Standing Water 

By redirecting water to drainage channels and a sump pump system, the CrawlDrain™ removes pooled water so it can no longer cause structural damage. 

Reduces Humidity and Mold Growth 

Drainage lowers crawl space moisture levels, drastically decreasing the risk of mold growth and musty odors. 

Discourages Pests 

Drainage and encapsulation make your crawl space less hospitable for moisture-loving pests like termites and ants. It becomes less appealing for pests to access and nest in a dry crawl space. 

Protects Floors and Structures 

By keeping the space beneath your home, a drainage system protects wooden structural supports from moisture damage. 

Increases Energy Efficiency 

A dry, encapsulated crawl space prevents cold drafts and improves insulation performance for better energy efficiency. 

Provides a Healthy Living Environment 

Since water is drained away, it lowers the risk of hazardous mold. The cleaner, drier air in your crawl space creates a healthier home for your family.
