What are Crawl Spaces?

A crawl space is a name given to any of the unoccupied, narrow, low-clearance spaces beneath the floor. These areas are primarily responsible for keeping buildings off the soil in order to control moisture levels.

As you might expect, the crawl space is named after its size. There is typically not enough room to stand in these spaces, which means you have to crawl to get around. While these underground spaces vary significantly in size, anything larger than 1.5 meters in height is normally called a basement.

Why do Crawl Spaces get so Moldy?

Mold issues are common in crawl spaces for two primary reasons:

Firstly, due to their location, there is a higher level of humidity and moisture in crawl spaces compared to enclosed living areas. These spaces are right against the ground, which means moisture is always nearby and ready to invade. There’s also a lack of fresh air in these spaces, with poor ventilation known to increase mold growth.

Secondly, these spaces are rarely visited, as they’re enclosed and not easy to access. This doesn’t create mold by itself. However, it does mean that mold often goes undetected for months or years at a time. If flooding or burst pipes cause water damage and it goes undetected, mold spores are likely to flourish in the foundation walls.

What Types of Mold Grow in a Crawl Space?

Much like a basement, the mold in a crawl space can be divided into two categories. These categories are allergenic or white molds and toxic or black molds. White molds can cause allergic reactions, but black molds are typically much more harmful. Black molds are characterized by their dark appearance and strong, musty odor.

In order to prevent mold growth in your crawl space, you should install a vapor barrier. A vapor barrier is a plastic sheeting that is placed over the ground under the floor joists. This will create a barrier between the organic material in the soil and the air in your crawl space, depriving mold of its food source.

The Health Risks Associated with Mold:

Mold is a type of fungus that flourishes in some indoor conditions. It thrives in moist, warm environments — especially in underground areas and around water leaks. Crawl spaces are the perfect environment for mold. This is why it’s so important to be proactive when it comes to prevention and remediation.

If you fail to treat mold in your crawl space, it can affect the air quality throughout your entire building. Exposure to mold can cause a range of allergic symptoms, including sneezing, coughing, and itching. Repeated exposure to mold can also cause more serious problems, including respiratory problems, headaches, and fatigue.

Testimonials

I am very pleased with the work performed by Environmental Services Of America. Elias came out to look at a job, talked to me through it until I understood the entire process. They showed up on the schedule day and worked till the job was done. Elias sent pictures of the progress every day and when I got back to the house it was perfectly clean, they could not have done a better job.

Elias was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt to answer the phone and get me on the schedule. The next morning we met at my property and the samples were taken. From start to finish, it only took a couple of days! Very impressive. Reasonable pricing. Highly recommend.

Elias and crew were great to work with. Their estimate was in-line with others I received, but they were much faster in both getting me on their schedule and completing the work than the others. They did a fantastic job and I’d use them again in a heartbeat.
