We often find that reoccurring mold issues can be attributed to moisture in the crawlspace.
If you are dealing with a variety of problems inside your Sherrills Ford, North Carolina home that point in the direction of a moisture issue, it might not be a plumbing problem at fault. It could be that you have moisture in the crawlspace under your home that is elevating the humidity level. At AdvantaClean of Lake Norma, Hickory and Gastonia, we often find that reoccurring mold issues, as well as poor indoor air quality and buckling floor boards, can be attributed to moisture in the crawlspace.
The magic number for relative humidity is around 50%. Anything higher than that can result in poor air conditioning performance, discomfort, mold, condensation on windows, wood swelling, and other issues. Anything lower can also be uncomfortable, as well as tough on various building materials. It is easy enough to add a bit of moisture if your home is running on the dry side, but if the humidity is elevated, it takes a sleuth to find out why. Thankfully, that’s something we are very good at! If you suspect you have mold or other moisture-related problems, give us a call, and we’ll get to the cause, starting with an inspection of your home’s crawlspace.
If we do find that you have moisture in the crawlspace, we will go over how crawlspace encapsulation could be the ideal solution. This process involves covering all the floors, walls, and ceiling of the crawlspace with a barrier that keeps ground moisture from entering into your home. Not only will this process reduce the humidity inside your home, but it will also guard against wood rot under your home, which could lead to structural integrity issues.
