Crawlspaces can Produce an Unhealthy Environment
Most people do not realize there are reasons to be concerned about the areas below the home in the crawl space. All types of foundations causes moisture wither dirt or concrete.
So this brings up the subject of mold spores floating around in the crawlspace.
Up to 40 percent of the air we breathe on the first floor of our property comes from the crawlspace.
Crawl spaces are a never-ending source of moisture. First because of the dirt. Even if the dirt's surface seems dry, digging down a few inches reveals moist earth. The dirt and soil emit high humidity which turns into water vapor. Air flow and water vapor naturally flow from the bottom of the ground to the top of the building.
Outside air enters through crawl space doors, hatches, crawl space vents, outside pipe penetrations, porous concrete walls, pores of blocks, gaps and holes. These intrusion spots bring in moist air, humidity, airborne mold spores and odors.
Consequently, whatever is in the air of the crawlspace eventually flows up into the living sections. This means that all are coming right into your home.
Mold & Mildew Solutions LLC can totally encapsulate your crawlspace and block out bugs, critters, condensation, mold, and outside air. To see how you can have a healthy crawlspace and avoid structural damage.

Conditions of Having an Unhealthy Crawl Space
Occupant Health Issues
Mold spores floating into your breathing space can lead to respiratory illness and allergic reactions. Even where a person is not originally affected by mold, living in such an environment can cause future health problems for some people.
Internal and Structural Building Damage
Mold spores and excess humidity inside your living space can cause secondary damage inside the property. First, by targeting the floor system directly above the crawlspace, which in turn would cause an environment for mold to grow under the carpet or flooring on the first level of the building, and inside wall cavities. Extensive moisture issues could also cause problems in the attic. Moisture rising from the crawlspace up can decrease the life of the roof sheathing and shingles and decrease the life of the paint on the outside of your house. This is a large issue because you may not notice there is a problem until considerable damage has already occurred.
Insects and Critters
Insects and critters are attracted to a moist environment. Crawlspaces are a wonderful place for bugs and rodents to play, find shelter, food, and find a burial plot. Termites favor moist environments also, which adds further possibility for structural integrity issues.
Not only is a musty odor emitting from the outside of your property, but even bigger than this being embarrassing, is that a musty or noxious odor is a sign that mold is growing. This distinctive odor means that mold is feeding off organic materials.
High Energy Cost
Energy costs are higher with an unconditioned and damp air in the crawl space. Damp air uses more energy to heat and cool. Ducts that are wet from condensation rob you of energy.
Factors that contribute to higher energy cost air duct leakage, open vents, gaping spaces, improper installment of insulation.
Vents in the Crawl Space
A vented dirt crawl space raises your heating and cooling cost 15%-25% every month.

They were quick, on time and very professional. Got the job done in the estimated time for the cost discussed beforehand. They had several options for payment without hidden fees so it fits most budgets. Very thankful and definitely recommend!Daniel S.
There is a reason that this company is rated so high and now I know why. Their team is responsive, thorough, reasonable, and most important to those of us who need them, they are empathetic. In the midst of a bad situation, they help you understand the science behind what is going on and they genuinely seem to care about the situation you are going through. They are honest and reliable and I highly recommend them. You too will understand what the positive reviews are about as soon as you meet them.Jason R.
I cannot say enough positive things about Lee Ramey and this company! From start until finish everything was clearly communicated, professionally done, and the attention to detail was outstanding.
