Crawl Spaces – A Common Area for Mold Problems in Buildings

Frankfort, IL – WEBWIRE – Monday, February 17, 2014

Just as moisture can spread from a crawl space into a home or building, so too can any airborne mold spores that are growing in the crawl space.

The vast majority of homes are constructed on a concrete slab, basement or crawl space.  Many homes constructed with a crawl space may go years without the area ever being inspected for leaks or other types of moisture damage under the structure.  Due to the fact that crawl spaces are often out of sight, and thus out of mind, problems can develop that may not be apparent until they have become major issues.  One of these is the growth of mold.
 
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Crawl spaces where relative humidity (RH) is high are common sites of hidden mold growth, particularly if the crawl space has a bare earth floor. The soil will wick moisture, through capillary action, from moist to dry areas. The relative warmth of the crawl space will dry the soil by evaporation, adding this moisture to the air in the crawl space where it can cause mold to grow. Also, in areas where the water table is high and weather conditions are suitable, ground water may enter a crawl space.”
 
Crawl spaces also often contain both water and sewer pipes.  Not only can these develop leaks over time or have issues related to condensation, but during extreme cold weather they can also freeze and burst causing major water issues. 
 
“Any moisture that accumulates in a crawl space may also enter other parts of the building and contribute to additional areas of mold growth,” said Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com, a leading supplier of mold prevention and remediation products. “Moisture can pass from a crawl space into a building through cracks in walls, floors and ceilings.  Just as moisture can spread from a crawl space into a home or building, so too can any airborne mold spores that are growing in the crawl space.”
