Moisture Accumulation 

How does moisture accumulate under a structure's foundation?


Moisture can accumulate beneath a structure's foundation under a number of circumstances.  Sloped topography, no rain gutters, poor lot drainage and overirrigation can lead to sub slab moisture issues. 

Proactive Steps to Minimize Moisture:

  • Rain Gutters (be sure they are trenched at least 20 feet away from the structure)
  • Landscape designed to divert water away from the foundation
  • Avoid overwatering grass or consider a desert landscape
