If left uncontrolled the moisture will attract wood boring insects (like termites), and create ideal conditions for fungus, molds, and mildews to grow. The crawl space moisture will make fiberglass insulation less effective at holding in the conditioned air you pay for (and breathe!).
Most people do not realize that the moisture from the crawl space can cause all sorts of problems inside the home like; excessive condensation on the windows in the colder months, the air conditioner is far less efficient and cost more to run, musty odors inside the home, mold growth and condensation in the attic. The list goes on and on. All these problems can be eliminated quickly and at a price that is more reasonable than you might think.
As a homeowner, you have goals in mind when considering repairing or improving the conditions of your crawl space. Some of these may be:
- air quality
- humidity control
- mold growth
- energy efficiency
- additional storage space
THE MOLD MAN will work with your structure, take into account your climate, and local codes to give you a custom approach plan that tackles your concerns, conditions your crawl space and ultimately improves the health and energy efficiency of your home.
