The Danger of High Moisture Readings in Your Crawl Space -- by Harry Cannon III


 
 
You've probably heard "your house is only as healthy as your crawl space."  However, most property owners do not order a crawl space inspection until it's time to sell or buy a property.  

If the moisture reading is over 19%, corrective measures are typically needed.  As a mold remediator and patent owner, I understand with most high moisture readings, there is a high probability of finding mold.

When mold is present in a crawl space and not treated, it can wick upwards into your home or continue growing in your insulation.  When you finally spot it, it usually has spread to the back wall and increased in surface area.

Most exterminators suggest a vapor barrier, sand treatment, or dehumidifier to address high moisture levels.  But neither of these account for mold that could be hiding in your crawl space, insulation, or wood.  They are not designed to kill mold.

Dwelling Management Solutions, provides comprehensive services to remove and prevent mold damage.  We completely inspect your crawl space and can offer you a vapor barrier insulation or dehumidifier along with specialized treatments that bring you and your family peace of mind and health.
