A Brief Story of Crawl Spaces in America
Crawl spaces became a hot trend in US home construction after World War II, mainly because they allowed builders to construct homes more quickly and economically. Plus, they provided easy access to plumbing, wiring, and ductwork. However, we now understand that crawl spaces can cause quite a few problems that weren’t considered back then. The issue is particularly pronounced with vented crawl spaces, which are vulnerable to outside humidity and the moisture from the soil. This ongoing exposure to moisture can lead to structural damage, mold growth, infestations, and other issues, all of which can seriously compromise the safety and healthiness of your home.
Common Vented Crawl Space Problems
Improperly graded crawl spaces without a proper drainage system tend to collect water in the form of puddles. Standing water in the crawl space evaporates, soaking floor joists and other wooden structures.
Water evaporating from dirt floors along with the exterior humidity coming through the vents will inevitably lead to the common issues related to prolonged crawl space exposure to humidity.
Mold, Odors & Dry Rot
Relative Humidity levels at or above 60% in the crawl space create conditions for mold and dry rot to thrive. If left untreated they will eventually compromise the structural integrity of the home.
