What Causes Myrtle Beach Crawl Space Moisture Problems?
There are four possible sources of crawl space moisture problems. Knowing the source of moisture will help us determine which crawlspace moisture solution is needed to properly eradicate the moisture issue.
Ground Water: this crawl space moisture problem is created when water stands or rises in the crawlspace.
Water Intrusion: this crawl space moisture issue is caused by the lack of proper grading around the home. Leaking pipes, improperly installed appliance water supplies and water damage can add to the moisture issues in the crawlspace.
Dirt Crawl Spaces: The exposed dirt floor in your crawl space grabs the moisture from the air and the moisture from the earth below. The drying of the soil causes the moisture to rise through your home, increasing the indoor relative humidity. High crawl space humidity also creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth. Installation of a moisture or vapor barrier can help eliminate this source of crawl space moisture.
Poor Crawl Space Ventilation: Poor crawl space ventilation can contribute to the creating a mix of warm and cool air causing surface condensation, further increasing the amount of crawl space moisture under the home.
