Spring is known for heavy rain and humidity. It is not uncommon to notice high levels of humidity or moisture in your crawl space around this time, but it is something you should be worried about. Crawl spaces are supposed to remain dry but rain water can seep in through cracks, crevices, and other openings. Wet crawl spaces, especially in the highly humid Atlanta and north Georgia areas, are perfect environments for mold and mildew to thrive in.
This, in turn, can affect your indoor air quality, the structural integrity of your home, and can lead to pest infestations and foul odors. Much of the air you breathe in your home comes from your crawl space or basement and when these areas are filled with toxic mold, that is what you are breathing in.
Why is it so common for mold to grow in crawl spaces? Crawl spaces are usually dark, humid, and not inspected much. Once mold begins to develop in this type of environment, it will multiply quickly and before you know it, your crawl space is covered in mold.
The solution to your mold issue will be remediation and crawl space encapsulation. These services are designed to remove and prevent mold/mildew growth, control high moisture conditions, keep your home and family safe from pests, and improve energy efficiency, saving you money on utility bills.
