The old way of thinking was that homes needed the space below to vent. It is now known that this creates many serious health and structural issues. If the underside of your home is vented, it is also letting humidity and moisture in. This can create Mold, Mildew and a Musty odor. An unsealed Crawl Space can also let moisture in the home from water entering through the foundation or directly from the damp soil below. In many cases the humidity and moisture in a Crawl Space can cause the Crawl Space supports and floor joists to sink or sag. This can cause damage to your floors, walls and countertops. One of the greatest health risks to residents of a home with a Crawl Space is mold which can grow at an alarming rate in an unsealed crawl space.
