Moldy Crawl Space

Your crawl space is an integral part of your home, but due to its location, it is often overlooked as part of routine maintenance. In fact, with many older homes, the crawl space may be installed over a dirt foundation. If not properly maintained, your crawl space could accumulate moisture which could seriously damage your house. Moisture often leads to mold and mildew which not only smell unpleasant but could also lead to serious respiratory health issues.

Causes Of Mold/Mildew In Crawl Spaces

It’s important to understand what causes mold and mildew in your crawl space to know how to prevent it in the future. Many of these causes include:

  • Cracks in your foundation
  • Punctured or absent vapor barrier
  • Malfunctioning dehumidifier
  • Improperly graded soil
  • Clogged gutters
  • Misdirected or short downspouts
