Keep Your Foundation Dry and Clean
Controlling moisture in crawl spaces is a critical part of a home’s or building’s maintenance. When moisture is allowed to build, it can trigger mold growth. If mold growth goes unchecked, it can pose a health and safety hazard to people in the house, office, or other commercial space. High moisture levels can also threaten and damage the structural integrity of a building.
Crawl spaces present a unique problem because they’re unseen and difficult to get to. Most building owners avoid them. Still, crawl spaces in San Antonio and Austin, TX need to get regular maintenance to stop any unseen mold growth.
Property owners look to specialists for crawl space encapsulation services to keep their properties protected. If your crawl space needs attention, call 210-267-8828 for help.
How to Spot Potential Problems
It’s hard to spot crawl space problems directly because they see so little foot traffic. However, there are some indications of moisture and mold growth owners should know about. Here are some signs of high moisture levels in your crawl space:
- Musty odors emanating from behind walls, roofs, or floors.
- A feeling of higher than normal humidity.
- A spike in heating and cooling utility costs.
- Warped floors.
- Condensation or water gathering on walls, floors, or ceilings.
- Any mold growth.
If you suspect mold growth or higher than normal moisture, you may want to get into the crawl space for a look. Once inside, look for these signs of moisture or mold:
- Wet insulation or condensation on masonry work or wood beams.
- Any musty odors.
- Water on pipes or any HVAC vents.
- Any signs of mold.
