Identifying & Repairing Crawl Space Issues Related To Mold, Moisture, & Humidity
Why Do I Have Crawl Space Mold?
Mold loves a damp, warm space that has a food source – like wood. Sound like your crawl space? Then you could have a moldy crawl space problem.
Warm Spaces:Mold can thrive in any temperature but loves the steady temperature of your crawl space. Add in high humidity and a food source and you have the perfect recipe for mold growth.
High Humidity:A relative humidity greater than 55% encourages mold growth. This is also the desired humidity level for dust mites – yet another source of health problems.
Did you know that the wood floor joists in your crawl space are mold’s favorite food? That’s because they are made of cellulose – mold loves cellulose – and the wood floor joists are 40-50% cellulose.

The air in your crawl space circulates through your entire home. The warm air in your home rises up into the higher sections of your home, which is why your attic is always so warm. As the heat rises it creates a vacuum which pulls the cool air up from your crawl space – cycling it through your home’s living space. As air is pulled into your crawl space it’s cooled, creating humidity and the cycle continues.
So, if there’s mold in your crawl space, the mold spores are being carried through your home. Protect your home and health by having a certified crawl space repair expert come and take a look.
