Why is Mold Growing in My Crawl Space

Most of the time crawl spaces are forgotten areas underneath your house. They are rarely taken care of or properly ventilated. When your crawl space isn’t ventilated properly, the humidity levels can rise to a dangerous level. Once the humidity level reaches above 50%, the high moisture level makes it easy for mold to grow. Mold can release dangerous toxins in your home which can cause a variety of health issues for everyone living in your home. Also, mold in your crawl space can cause damage to your foundational structure. Mold feeds on organic material such as wood. If mold begins to deteriorate your wood piers, you may begin to see uneven or sagging floors.
