WHAT IS MOLD IN A CRAWL SPACE
Generally, mold is a fungus that grows in dark places with water or moisture. Only a small amount of water is needed for mold to grow. Mold can grow on wooden joists, subfloor, brick, cement or concrete. Under the ideal conditions, mold can grow not just in the crawl space, but into you home from behind the walls. The big problem with mold arises with with unhealthy air quality in your home.
SIGNS OF A CRAWL SPACE MOLD PROBLEM
- Hardwood flooring starting to warp or buckle.
- Unhealthy air quality that causes health issues such as allergies and asthma or even headaches when in the home.
- Strong musty odors in the home.
- Leaking or broken plumbing pipes that cause standing water in the crawl space.
- Rodents or insects in the crawl space.
WHAT CAUSES CRAWL SPACE MOLD?
For mold to grow in a crawl space, four things are needed. Mold spores which are already in the air, an organic material for the mold to grow on such as wood, moisture from water or humidity and the correct temperature.
Additional factors include,
- Humid weather that enters the crawl space
- Poor drainage or grading of a yard
- Moisture that evaporates from the soil or walls in the foundation
- Leaking pipes that cause constant moisture
WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A SEALED CRAWL SPACE
A crawl space can be a very unhealthy place. Sealing a crawl space creates a dry environment, eliminates mold and keeps insects and rodents away from the home. The goal of a sealed crawl space is to separate it from the exterior moisture outside the home by creating a vapor barrier on the floor and walls of the crawl space.
Additionally, an encapsulated crawl space can help reduce utility costs and the need for future remediation by lowering heating and cooling costs. A sealed crawl space can also increase the value of your home. A crawl space encapsulation shows potential buyers that care was taken to improve the home, improve air quality in the living space and make better living conditions.
