Moisture Control / Crawl Space
MOISTURE CONTROL/ CRAWL SPACE SERVICES
Indoor air quality in your home is directly affected by the quality of air in your crawl space or basement. Musty Odors, Mold and Fungus, Dampness, Excessive Moisture, are all indicators of an unhealthy crawlspace or basement. These conditions will often make your crawlspace a factory for unhealthy Toxic Mold Spores to proliferate. These are are also conducive conditions for Fungus, Wood Decay, and Wood Destroying Insects . Where there is Moisture, there is Vermin. Spiders, snakes, centipedes, silverfish, cockroaches, rats, mice, tiny dust mites and termites all love living in the shady, damp crawl space under your home. Wood floors and floor joists often fall prey to moisture damage and decay fungi. Floors squeak and warp, support beams rot and all that moist wood makes ideal food for termites. Moisture, dirt, dust mites, airborne diseases from animal feces, and particles from the unhealthiest part of your home are sucked up through your floors and pass through your entire house. This is the single biggest cause of indoor odors and allergies and those of you who have experienced this have the intuition to know when your house is making you sick. You should also know that humidity in the crawl space leads to humidity throughout the home, which leads to dust mites and toxic mold spores (big allergy & asthma triggers). A home with mold problems is likely to have dust mite problems as well. Similar to mold, dust mites lay
dormant until favorable moist conditions allow them to thrive. Humidity provides the water source for a slew of microscopic (and larger) organisms that live in your crawl space and walls. An entire food chain of organisms exists within your home with microscopic organisms at the bottom and larger ones, like spiders and mice at the top. All of these organisms are known to contribute to poor indoor air quality and allergies.
