Signs of a Crawl Space Humidity Problem
If your crawl space area has excess moisture, chances are you have smelled that damp, unclean air coming from down below. It’s not just a sensory issue – that type of environment allows mold to grow, causing rot that will result in damage to the structure of your home. When the spores from mold have free reign, you can also have health issues due to breathing them in. Mold and rot are the two biggest signs that your crawl space has too much humidity in the air. There will be fuzzy-looking spores growing on the wood and cement. When the humidity is over 70% or higher, as it is in many warm areas around Tennessee, you will find mold flourishing. There will be a bad, rotting smell as well as signs of visible mold growth.
Causes of Crawl Space Moisture Control Problem
When you contact All Pest Exterminating, we will look for several factors that may be causing the moisture in your crawl space. If you have a large amount of standing water in the crawl space, that can mean that you have a problem with your drains and a possible plumbing leak. This is a separate issue that needs to be fixed quickly so that you do not have to sustain costly damage to your property as a whole. We can recommend some experienced plumbing professionals who can assist you with this issue. Sometimes the humidity is caused by moisture that is evaporating from the ground nearby. This problem is often unrecognized because the ground appears dry from the surface level. Also, occasionally the humidity can increase when you allow outside air into your crawl space from a humid climate.
