Have you noticed a musty odor in your home lately? Don't tolerate that nasty, damp smell. Contact a waterproofing specialist. Crawlspaces with high moisture levels are a perfect habitat for mold, insects and airborne pollutants. Left untreated, mold and mildew can create an unpleasant odor that affects the air quality of your entire home. Chronic dirt, humidity and structural issues are also signs of crawlspace issues that need immediate attention.
