Here in the Richmond, Virginia area, it’s always hot and humid outside during the spring and summer months. This hot, humid air often finds its way into your crawl space, creating condensation and high humidity levels. Homes with high moisture and humidity levels in the crawl space create perfect conditions for mold to thrive and grow. A moldy crawl space can, over time, pose serious health risks to you and your family. Mold can cause a plethora of upper respiratory complications, including sneezing, itching, wheezing, headaches, difficulty breathing, and fatigue. Repeated exposure can heighten a persons sensitivity, causing more severe reactions, even triggering asthma attacks. Upwards of 40% of the air you breathe in your home comes from the crawl space. Secondly, mold can eat away at the exposed wood in your crawl space, including the floor joists, sub flooring, and ban boards, causing extensive damage and costly repairs. With a wood moisture content of 19% or above, mold can grow and feed off of your home.

Benefits of Crawl Space Remediation

Lower Energy Bills - Adding insulation and removing humidity in your crawl space will allow your HVAC system to operate more efficiently.

No Mold and/or Mildew - When you seal out the moisture and remove the humidity in your crawl space, mold and mildew can’t form.

Fewer Pests - Having an excessively damp crawl space can attract numerous pests. Most of these pests are just a nuisance and creepy. However, some can actually damage the structure of your home. Termites can wreak havoc much quicker on wood with a higher moisture content. When you keep out the moisture, you also out the pests.
