Tree roots can creep their way into just about anywhere. Sometimes, this means our crawl spaces. In the latest article from Clean Crawls, we learn about three serious problems that tree roots can cause after they’ve made their way inside a crawl space.

“At first glance, it may seem somewhat laughable to discover that the roots of the trees surrounding your home have wriggled their way into your crawl space, but in reality, it is no laughing matter,” Clean Crawls states. While tree roots invading crawl spaces is not common in the Seattle area, it is an issue that homeowners should be aware of.

One of the first problems tree roots can cause is that they poke holes in the foundation of the house. To get inside the crawl space, they must wriggle their way through the cement foundation of the structure, leaving a gaping hole in their wake. This can, in turn, cause additional problems. Not only is the structure weakened as a whole, but it also opens up the opportunity for moisture damage and pest invasion.

One of Clean Crawls first recommendations is to remove the tree root with the assistance of a skilled local foundation repair crew, or may also be accomplished by hiring a local tree mover to eliminate the root, and even relocate the tree. The article goes on to list other repairs that should take place to ensure the full restoration and protection of the crawl space.
