Crawl Space Drainage Matting, Explained

A crawl space drainage mat helps you manage moisture in your property. We can place one of these durable, dimpled mats underneath your home to expel unwanted water and safeguard your foundation.

Drainage mats are made from high-density polyethylene and divert water from your crawl space to a drainage system. When used with crawl space encapsulation, dehumidification, and other waterproofing methods, these mats can prevent water intrusion issues and improve air quality in your home. A drainage mat also strengthens the floor, making it easier to store and access your belongings.

Signs You Need Crawl Space Drainage Matting

Consider a drainage mat for your crawl space if you notice any of these problems:

  • Standing or Flooding Water 
  • Condensation on Pipes 
  • Damp insulation 
  • Musty Smells
  • Mold
  • Pest Problems
  • Unusually High Energy Bills 
  • High Humidity
  • Rotting Wooden Structures 
  • Sagging Floors

These symptoms suggest your home has underlying moisture or drainage issues.

Is Crawl Space Waterproofing Necessary?

We always recommend waterproofing your crawl space to protect your property’s framework. Otherwise, water can damage your foundation and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Waterproofing a crawl space yourself is complicated and poses various risks. So, call in local experts like The Basement Guys to do the job properly! Our custom solutions resolve moisture issues and improve the health and longevity of your home.

Crawl Space Drainage Matting Benefits

Advantages of installing a crawl space drainage mat include:

  • Better moisture control: Drainage matting draws water from your home’s foundation, safeguarding it from moisture damage.
  • Improved structural integrity: Drainage mats reduce the risk of mold growth and wood rot, which can impact your property’s structure. 
  • Increased functionality: Drainage matting lets you get more value from your crawl space. For example, a mat’s protective layer makes it easier to store items.

We recommend using our proprietary CrawlSeal™ drainage matting as part of our complete encapsulation system for additional waterproofing benefits.

Crawl space drainage matting is worth it if you frequently encounter moisture issues, as it helps channel water away from your home’s foundation and prevents mold and mildew growth.

Drainage matting is necessary in most cases to effectively manage moisture and create a dry, healthy environment.

We don’t recommend you install your own crawl space drainage matting. It’s important to precisely install the matting to maximize its effectiveness in redirecting water away from your home’s foundation. Contacting a professional is recommended.
