The Symptoms:

Crawlspaces play an important role in your property’s overall health. There are many symptoms that can help determine the current state of your crawlspace. These include:

-Wet Crawl Space (Moisture)

-Sagging Floors

-Crawlspace Mold

Unhealthy crawlspaces can mean an unstable foundation, but it can also impact your home’s health. Exposed crawl spaces with limited insulation can cause other fungus and bacteria to grow.

The Causes:

Although it is common to have an exposed dirt floor in your crawl space, this is the leading cause of damp crawlspaces. The soil beneath your crawl space absorbs the moisture causing your crawlspace to become wet. This creates an environment for unwanted things like mold, bacteria, and pests.
