Insulation for Knoxville & Maryville
Symptoms of Moisture Damage in Your Crawl Space
Over time, moisture will cause the following damage to occur:
- Rising moisture content in wood joists
- Dry rot and cracked wood
- Mold and/or mildew formation on the wood in the crawlspace
- Mold, mildew, and fungus will infiltrate the home living area through cracks
- Duct insulation deterioration. Older ductwork will foster more mold and mildew
Issues will get worse until you are forced to spray to kill the fungus, mold, or mildew problems, re-wrap the duct insulation, and repair or replace the damaged floor joists. This will cost thousands of dollars and will not solve your underlying moisture control problems.
What Causes Crawl Space Issues?
Moisture and condensation develop when the hot, humid outdoor air is drawn into the cool air of the crawl space, vents, ducts, and other leaks in the crawl space and home. Moisture may also continuously come from just a few inches below the seemingly dry dirt or soil ground of your crawlspace. This humid air flows upward from the lowest point of your home, and if left untreated, will eventually cause damage to your home. Also, any resulting mold, mildew, and fungus may cause health problems for you and your family.
