How Humidity Enters Your Crawl Space
Your home is not completely airtight or watertight, because it is designed with a number of openings to accommodate cables, pipes, wires, and ducts. Over time, natural wear and tear on your home can lead to the infiltration of humid air into your crawl space, which can gradually deteriorate the wood and compromise its ability to provide structural support. Additionally, warm air rising throughout your home can create a vacuum that draws in humid air, resulting in the condensation of water and subsequent moisture damage. Known as the Stack Effect, this process can significantly decrease your energy efficiency and cause structural issues.
How Humidity Affects Your Home
There are many unwanted effects of uncontrolled humidity in your home, including:
- Musty odors
- Mold and mildew growth
- Rotting wood
- Metal corrosion
- Increased energy bills
Excessive moisture in your crawl space can lead to consequences like uneven or sagging floors, floor collapse, and pest infestation. Any pests or animals residing in the area can generate strong, unpleasant odors and allergens that may pose a risk to your health.
