Crawl Space Mold and Mildew
If your foundation has a crawl space, it is a very important area of your home. It is the base of your home and it needs to be examined from time to time to make sure it is safe and dry. A wet crawl space can cause wood rot which, in turn, will cause your home to have many structural problems. Another reason to check your crawl space is that a wet crawl space can promote the growth of mold and mildew. It is not always obvious that you may have moisture in your crawl space. Jerry's Waterproofing offers you some of the signs that your home may have a wet crawl space:
- High humidity
- Damp walls or floors
- Musty odors
- Water stains
- Wet or damp insulation
- Condensation on pipes or ductwork
If you see any of these signs that you have a damp crawl space, it is important to contact a professional that can come and inspect your crawl space and offer
crawl space repair and recovery. The team at Jerry's Waterproofing offers
crawl space repair.
Mold and mildew thrive in damp, dark areas such as a crawl space. This mold and mildew will get into the air that you breathe causing health issues for you and your family such as:
- Sinus congestion
- Runny nose
- Eye irritation
- Respiratory problems
- Throat irritation
Don't let a wet crawl space cause you and your family to have health issues. Jerry's Waterproofing can help.
