18 Apr MOISTURE CONTROL – MOISTURE CAUSES MORE PROBLEMS THAN YOU THINK
If your home has a crawlspace, there is a high likelihood that moisture has found its way in. While a small amount of condensation may not be considered to be a significant issue, moisture in a crawlspace can cause major problems for a home. In addition to causing damage to wooden structures, it can also cause mold and mildew, which can lead to health problems. Moisture can also cause a home to be less efficient and lead to pest infestation, leading to health and damage issues.
The experts at Eco Advantage help you identify any moisture concerns and provide tips on how to handle them.
IDENTIFYING A MOISTURE PROBLEM
A moisture problem in your home may be obvious, but oftentimes it is not. Signs that you may have a moisture problem that needs to be addressed include:
- Musty odor
- Visible mold growth
- Condensation on windows and/or walls
- Asthma and/or allergy
- Corrosion of building materials
MOISTURE CONTROL SOLUTIONS
Dehumidifier – A dehumidifier works by removing moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers reduce humidity and dust levels in the home, and can help lessen mold odors.
Remove Carpet – Carpet is more likely to hold onto moisture than hardwood or tile floors. In addition, carpet often contains allergens, such as dust mites.

Conducive conditions are conditions that could increase the chances of your home becoming infested with termites. A moist crawl space with damp wood is a natural habitat for termites. Termites devour wood and soft, wet wood makes a perfect meal. Placing a barrier in a moist crawl space along with proper soil treatment will inhibit the infestation of subterranean termites. Pricing varies by structure and size.
