Signs of Moisture in Your Crawlspace:
- Buckling of wood floors: Buckling of wood floors is an indication that there is moisture damage to the wood. When wood is in the presence of high humidity or water, the wood absorbs the moisture in the air. When wood absorbs moisture, it begins to swell causing floors to cup, and even heave.
- Foul odors: Foul odors can come from mold, wood rot, stagnant water, and even just the dirt! Mold/wood rot is the main consequence to having moisture in the crawlspace. However, the odors mold causes can be quite the nuisance. Stagnant water and dirt can also produce some foul odors. Usually this comes in the way of an “earthy” smell throughout your home or business. AdvantaClean of Madison county, knows how to get rid of these annoying odors for good!
- Lots of pests: many rodents, spiders, termites, and even reptiles love a moist dark enironment like a crawlspace. If you are seeing any of these pests running through your house, then you probably have a moist crawlspace.
- A dusty house: If you have an unusually dusty house there is a good chance it is coming from your crawlspace. A crawlspace is essentially a dirt floor basement. The Stack effect in your home pushes the dirty air from the crawlspace into the main living levels thus spreading dirt and potential mold throughout your home.
