Controlling Moisture Levels in a Crawl Space

Moisture is linked to many problems in crawl spaces. Research shows that rainwater, evaporation from the ground (soil), and water leaks from faulty plumbing are to blame for high moisture levels in crawl spaces.

Generally, if crawl spaces are left as they are, high moisture levels are inevitable regardless of the resulting problems. High moisture levels in crawl spaces are linked to mold growth, pest and insect infestation problems. These problems attract other problems like poor indoor air quality and high energy bills. The importance of controlling moisture levels in crawl spaces can’t, therefore, be overlooked.

Signs You Have Moisture Control Issues in Your Crawl Space

Mold/Mildew

Bad indoor odor
Does your indoors smell musty? Mold overgrowth results in an unpleasant musty smell. Rotting wood also emits a bad smell.
Indoor condensation
Are your windows “sweating”? Excess indoor moisture can make windows appear to “sweat” or have a layer of wet vapor. Condensation can also affect water pipes, insulation, and other items in crawl spaces or indoors.
Water presence
Are there visible signs of water i.e., wet ground or poor drainage? Can you spot rust on metal piping or metal fixtures?
Pest/Insect Infestation
Pests and insects like rats and cockroaches love damp, dark places. If you have a pest/insect problem, moisture issues in your crawl space may be to blame.
