Finding the source of moisture problems can be difficult, time consuming, and costly. The first step to take to attempt to control condensation in the air is to reduce the humidity levels inside your home or business. Excess moisture in your home can lead to damage and encourage mold and mildew growth.

Indoor moisture condensation issues can develop in any room, or in any space. If not properly controlled, high levels of moisture condensation can lead to the mold and mildew growth.

The presence of mold and mildew growth can potentially cause a variety of health problems for susceptible individuals.

The absence of proper attic ventilation allows moisture to become trapped in the attic, potentially causing attic mold growth. As with any interior mold issue, addressing the moisture source is key. AdvantaClean experts can help diagnose your attic moisture and attic mold issues by properly recommending and implementing an attic ventilation system or other corrective measures.
Crawl Space Moisture
Many crawl spaces have an exposed earthen floor, which allows ground moisture to evaporate into the space under your home, increasing the crawl space moisture levels in both the air and sub-structure of your home – especially if you don’t have a vapor barrier.
Our crawl space moisture specialists can address the moisture source– from simple repairs to comprehensive vapor barriers, crawl space ventilation systems and crawl space dehumidifier installations.
