Common places for Moisture Issues
Thanks to high humidity, moisture issues can be pretty common in the South. Indoor moisture issues can develop in any room, or in any space. If not properly controlled, high levels of moisture can lead to the growth of mold and mildew and can even damage your home or building by allowing wood rot and/or structural damage to set in. In addition, mold growth can potentially cause a variety of health problems for susceptible individuals.
Attic moisture issues can be a result of a few things: lack of proper attic ventilation, lack of proper attic insulation, or attic condensation. Poor attic ventilation, lack of proper attic insulation and attic condensation all allow attic moisture levels to elevate and potentially cause mold growth in the attic. As with any interior mold issue, locating the moisture source is key. The moisture control experts at AdvantaClean of the Lowcountry will diagnose your attic moisture issues and mold issues. They will recommend and implement corrective measures and ensure you have proper attic ventilation.
Another common place for moisture problems to occur is the crawlspace.
Many crawl spaces have an exposed earth floor. This dirt floor allows moisture from the ground to evaporate into the crawl space, increasing the crawl space moisture levels and creating the perfect environment for mold to settle and thrive. Lack of crawl space moisture control can lead to high levels of moisture in the wood framing of your crawl space, creating the perfect environment for mold to grow and thrive.
