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.
