How to Tell When Humidity in a Crawl Space is at a Dangerous Level
How can you tell if the levels of humidity in a crawl space are too high? We use a hygrometer to measure indoor humidity and monitor the amount of moisture present.
If the humidity level approaches 70%, it’s time for a dehumidifier. Proper insulation and vapor barriers regulate the temperature and keep moisture levels low to ensure fewer fluctuations in the air’s relative humidity. This prevents mold, mildew, and rot.
What is Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation protects against moisture by using a vapor barrier on the floor and walls. We seal up your crawl space by keeping the moisture sealed outside.
There are many benefits from encapsulating your crawl space. After encapsulation, air quality improves, allowing you to breathe easy. Encapsulation saves you money on costly floor repairs.
Another benefit is comfort. Floors won’t be cold to the touch in winter and your home won’t be muggy in summer. This leads to lower energy bills by up to 20%.
Did you know that an encapsulated crawl spaces may qualify you for rebates and tax incentives? Some state and local governments offer incentives as well. Furthermore, if you ever sell your home, an encapsulated crawlspace offers an attractive selling feature.
How To Prevent Mold From Growing in Your Crawl Space:
- Monitor foundation walls for cracks that water can enter.
- Channel gutters and downspouts at least 6 feet away from the house, especially during rainy seasons. Otherwise, water will accumulate around your home and eventually invade your crawl space.
- Properly ventilate your crawl space.
- Repair missing or sagging insulation.
- Locate leaks around HVAC ducts and plumbing.
- Ensure dryer vents have an exit OUTSIDE the home.

Mold effects people in different ways. For those with asthma or other respiratory issues, difficulty breathing, runny nose, itchy/watering eyes and sneezing may result. If you suspect mold, don’t wait to call us. Our professionals will be happy to assist anyway we can.
Does Insurance Cover Mold?
Never presume your homeowners insurance will pay to fix mold problems. Insurance will usually only cover a mold problem if it results from an emergency covered on your policy. However, mold that resulted in lack of maintenance, persistent moisture, or from floodwaters (unless you have flood insurance). If you are concerned about your coverage, it’s a good idea to call your provider.
