Average homeowners don’t spend a lot of time in the crawl space or the dark, dingy basement. And, the chances of finding a water leak in a place you don’t frequent? Not very likely.
Crawl space water damage is a common occurrence because supply lines, as well as drain pipes, are often routed through the basement or crawl space. Due to cold weather incidents or faulty pipes, supply lines can spring leaks and leave you with a mess. If you’re not aware of the signs, it can even continue unnoticed for some time—here’s how to identify or avoid crawl space water damage before it’s too late.
To identify or avoid basement and crawl space water damage, follow these three tips carefully.
As we stated earlier, you probably don’t spend a lot of time in your crawl space—and that’s normal. Still, you’ll need to check on your crawl space or basement a few times each year to make sure everything is looking good. Specifically, look for signs of pipes problems—and if you notice anything suspicious—call a plumber ASAP.
Do you sense a foul odor in your home? Does it get worse when you’re in the basement? A terrible smell could indicate mold or mildew growth—so you’ll want to get that inspected by a professional as soon as you notice it. Besides being detrimental to your health, mold can also indicate a water leak has sprung nearby.
If you want to get techy, you can even invest in water leak detectors for major leaks and disruptions. Place them strategically near water lines in your crawl space—a loud alarm will sound if water is detected!

I can’t recommend 970 Services enough! We had extensive hail damage & Andrew Golding came out & was so kind, grace filled & helpful. We had a hard time dealing with insurance & they partnered with me on the process making the roof replacement the easiest part of our hail damage experience. A++ you can’t go wrong! I absolutely would hire them again in a heartbeat.
We are very pleased with 970 Services work and their customer service. Our roof was damaged from hail and needed to be replaced. Aaron worked with our insurance supplemental team and ensured we got the full amount that was owed to us. He also made sure the work was done correctly on our roof with a post inspection. Very professional and friendly. Thank you 970 Services for all your help! Definitely recommend!
Steve and his crew have done several projects at our house (water remediation, painting, plumbing, minor electrical, etc.), and I would use them again in a heartbeat. They are professional, responsive, and do top quality work. Their detailed estimates show where every penny goes, and they let you know if something needs to change. It's a great feeling to know that I can reach out to Steve if there's a problem, and he'll find a way to solve it.
We had a water leak from our hot water heater and our insurance company recommended 970 Services. I cannot tell you how great they were. Steve scheduled us quickly, did a very thorough inspection of damages, set up drying equipment and got things headed in the right direction. He then coordinated all necessary sub contractors for drywall, flooring, and even requested to be present when the insurance adjuster arrived so that they couldn’t skimp on us. This is the company you want to work with and I will never call anyone else! Thank you Steve & 970!
