Schedule Free Inspection

Ever walked across a room in your home only to feel an unexpected bounce under your feet?  

While it might seem like a harmless little quirk in your home, bouncy floors could indicate a serious problem lurking beneath your home. But don’t worry, with professional help from AquaGuard, this is a problem you can tackle head-on. 

What are Bouncy Floors?

Bouncy floors are not just a symptom of old homes. More often than not, they are an indication of an underlying issue related to your home’s crawl space.  

This issue is self-explanatory—when you notice an unexpected give or flexibility in your flooring as you walk across, you’re experiencing what we refer to as ‘bouncy floors.’ They might be accompanied by a squeaking, rattling, or creaking noise. 

Why Bouncy Floors are a Problem

Bouncy floors might seem harmless, or even amusing at first, but they can signify serious moisture damage in your crawl space. Eventually, moisture in your crawl space leads to wood rot, compromising the structural integrity of the beams supporting your flooring.  

This fungal deterioration causes the noticeable bounce in your home. If left unchecked, this issue leads to expensive repairs and dangerous structural failures. In other words, you could feel the consequences in both your body and your wallet. 

What Should I be Looking for in My Home?

If you’re wondering how to identify bouncy floors in your home, start by paying attention to how your floors respond to your weight as you walk across different rooms. If you feel a noticeable give or bounce, this is most likely the issue.  

Other signs could include visible sagging, creaking sounds, or even feeling a vibration through the home when heavy appliances are running. Since bouncy floors are a symptom of moisture, you may also notice water damage on your floor or musty odors in your home. 

What Causes Bouncy Floors in My Home?

The leading cause of bouncy floors is moisture damage in the crawl space. This moisture can come from a variety of sources, including high outdoor humidity, inadequate ventilation, and poor drainage systems.  

Over time, persistent moisture can lead to wood rot in the floor joists and beams, leading to bouncy floors. Georgia experiences a lot of rain and humidity throughout the year, making bouncy floors a common problem in homes without properly protected crawl spaces.  

How Can AquaGuard Fix Bouncy Floors in My Home?

AquaGuard provides an effective solution to sagging, bouncy, or uneven floors called IntelliJack™. These galvanized steel supports are installed to reinforce sagging beams and undersized joists, restoring strength and support to the floors in your home. 

The SettleStop IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Support System

The IntelliJack system offers unparalleled strength, with each support jack capable of handling a load capacity of more than 24,000 pounds. The system is tested and certified to the highest industry standards, ensuring a reliable solution to the problem of sagging floors. 

One of the key features of the IntelliJack system is its adjustability. This is important because floor joists often aren’t at the right height due to sagging or settling over time.  

A crawl space repair expert installs the IntelliJack system, carefully measuring the necessary height for the floor joists to return to their original position.  

After installation, these supports can be adjusted to lift the floor joists back to their initial position. This ability to adjust and correct the height of your floor joists ensures that your home remains supported in the long-term.
