What Is Crawl Space Humidity?

Humidity, unfortunately, is not a harmless visitor in your home. If you allow humidity to gather in your crawl space, then you may find yourself contending with unwanted damage in the days, weeks, and months to come. Humidity, after all, does more than make your space uncomfortable to live in. Unwanted moisture in the air can cause significant damage throughout the whole of your home, such as: 

  • Unpleasant smells 
  • Mold growths 
  • Warped door frames 
  • Damaged windowsills 
  • Sagging floors 
  • Rotting floor joists 
  • Wood rot 
  • Foundation sinkage 

If you find yourself contending with crawl space humidity, you can reach out to a professional contractor in your area to schedule a home inspection. During a home inspection, you can find the source of a leak and determine how best you can resolve the damage done to your home. You can also discuss what waterproofing measures might help you protect your home from unwanted moisture after repairs have been completed.
