Causes of Crawlspace Problems Their Solutions

The most common problems in the crawlspace are all related to moisture - mold and mildew, wood rot or metal rust, high humidity, pest infestation, etc. The crawlspace, much like the basement, is one area of the home that is particularly susceptible to water entry. Water can seep through the walls from the ground around the crawlspace or can enter as moisture in the air through crawlspace vents.

Once inside the crawlspace, water causes all sorts of issues. High humidity and damp surfaces can lead to mold growth, lowering the air quality throughout the entire home. Dampness can also cause wood rot or metal rust, which are problems that jeopardize the structural integrity of your home. Wet conditions are also preferable for many types of critters, which can infest the crawlspace and then move onto your home.
