Prevention of Moisture & Humidity in Crawl Space

If you have a crawl space in your house, it's critical that you keep it dry and clear of moisture. A damp crawl area can cause lots of new health and safety issues in your house. Mold and mildew growth, as well as rotted floor joists and support beams, are all possibilities. Furthermore, undesired pests such as termites, snakes, rats, spiders, and other vermin that seek out damp, dark spaces would be attracted to a damp crawl space.

What Causes Moisture In Crawl Space?

What Causes Moisture In Crawl Space
  • Condensation: Leakage is one of the most significant causes of condensation in the crawl space. Leakage allows outside air to enter the crawl area and mix with the air already there. The most effective technique to prevent condensation is to block any vents or open doors that allow outside air in.
  • Water Seepage: All of that liquid in the soil will begin to seep up through the earth and into the crawl space after heavy rainfall or when the snow begins to melt. Crawl space encapsulation, also known as laying strips of heavy-duty plastic over the ground to function as a barrier, is the best approach to prevent this from happening.
  • Gutters and Downspouts: One of the most common reasons for a damp crawl space is debris in the gutters, which can be easily avoided by ensuring that the gutters are clean and clear of debris and that the downspouts are properly diverting water away from the foundation.
  • Leaking Pipes: Another common culprit that goes unnoticed is plumbing lines under your crawl space. Keep a watch on your utility bill to ensure that there are no unexpected increases in usage.
