Excess Moisture and Water in Your Crawlspace

Excess moisture in your crawlspace can cause lots of problems. It can lead to high humidity, mold and mildew growth, salt deposits, standing water, and poor ventilation. These things can make your home smell musty and cause allergies to worsen. They can also damage the wood in your house by making it rot or warp. Insects may come into your home because of this extra moisture.

Standing water in your crawlspace can be a problem. Like excess moisture, standing water can cause bad smells, make allergies worse, attract pests, and damage your home’s structure. Poor ventilation can cause moisture issues in your crawlspace. It can lead to high humidity, mold and mildew growth, salt deposits, standing water, and other problems.
