Crawl Space Mold on Floor Joist Beam

3 Signs of Crawl Space Mold

We fight to keep things fresh and clean throughout our homes to maintain the health and comfort of our family. Our routines and chores keep us busy with the work it takes to keep our family taken care of.

Letting these tasks go begins the inevitable decline towards disaster. For example, if the containers of leftovers are left in the back of the fridge week after week, the undeniable truth will soon begin to stink up the kitchen. Abandoning the dirty clothes basket turns doing laundry into a musty, have-to-hold-your-breath situation. Staying on top of these and many others tasks are paramount to ensure the smooth and healthful functioning of your home. So, what if we told you that your crawl space could very well be fostering the same unsanitary conditions as in the previous examples?

Crawl spaces that have not yet been insulated or encapsulated harbor moisture. That moisture, combined with all of the dead, organic matter such as wooden floor joists that support your home, make for a crawl space mold paradise. The feeding frenzy that ensues could be taking place beneath the main floor of your home and most people would be none the wiser.

3 Signs You Might Have Mold Growing In Your Crawl Space:

  • Musty odors in your living area
  • Buckled hardwood floors
  • High humidity in the living area
