Mold requires water. No water, no mold. Mold is the result of a water problem. Fix the water problem. Cleanup the mold. And you have fixed the mold problem. (Joseph Lstiburek, Terry Brennan, Nathan Yost, 2002)
It’s now an established fact that open vents in our Southeast climate promote fungal growth and mold in the crawl space area. Open crawl spaces let in outside moisture. When you vent your crawl space on a humid day, it pulls in moisture. Crawl space humidity forms when the warm outside air mixes with the cool crawl space air.
Let Pinam help you evaluate the humidity levels under your house and the possibility of mold. Steps you take now ensure the health and safety of your home!
