Mold and Mildew from Your Wet Crawl Space Means Unhealthy Air in your Virginia Home or Business

One of the major issues with a wet crawl space is the potential for mold growth. There are a number of different forms of mold that can travel to your living levels in your home. A home with musty, putrid odors most likely has a hidden mold problem in the crawl space. If you notice these smells in your home, check your crawl space for mold. The mold may be several different colors: green, white, black, yellow, reddish brown, and others. If you find mold in your home, contact a professional immediately.

Even though you may not be aware of it, your damp environment is perfect for wild animals, insects, and pests to flourish that will make for an extremely unhealthy and destructive condition. Mold in your crawl space can also affect the air quality throughout your home, as much of the air that you breathe in the rest of your home comes from the crawl space and basement. This means it is important to the health of you and your family to keep your crawl space dry and mold free. You need to make sure your crawl space is sealed and protected against moisture.

Wet Crawl Space Solutions for Northern Virginia

If your home has a wet crawl space, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible. There are several problems that can arise from a wet crawl space. Fortunately, Basement Masters Waterproofing has a solution for all of your wet crawl space issues:

  • Crawl Space Vapor Barrier: If moisture is seeping through the walls in your crawl space, you may be in need of crawl space encapsulation. This is a process by which the walls and floor of the crawl space are covered by a vapor barrier, usually made of a plastic or foil sheeting. This vapor barrier acts as a barrier against moisture vapor, sealing out water that might otherwise seep through the concrete. This keeps the crawl space dry, preventing problems such as rust, wood rot, water stains, or flooding from occurring.
  • Crawl Space Recovery: A wet crawl space may also be home to mold growth. If this is the case, it will affect the air quality throughout the entire home. Basement Masters Waterproofing’s crawl space recovery services can eliminate mold and prevent further moisture entry. We use our highly effective “System Seal” products to seal moisture out of the crawl space.
