What Causes Mold in Crawl Space

Molds thrive on moisture. Being the kind of damp space that a crawl space is, it's no wonder that crawl spaces are one of the most common areas of mold growth in the home. Moreover, most of the time this part of the house stays unoccupied and unattended, leaving mold problems to be discovered until it's too late. That is why crawl space moisture control and repair is so crucial. 

Grate Products, LLC is a renowned basement and crawl space waterproofing products/solutions manufacturing and distribution company operating since 2006. We have all kinds of basement and crawl space waterproofing solutions including moisture control for mold.

Causes of Mold in Crawl Space

Two things are required for mold growth: moisture/humidity and food source. Being located underneath your home right on top of the earth gives the fungus both. And if your crawl space is not moisture controlled (such as vapor barrier, dehumidifier, etc.) mold growth becomes much easier and faster. 

The Danger of Crawl Space Mold Exposure

Exposure to crawl space mold can lead to a range of health issues: eye irritation, coughing, wheezing, nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, eye irritation, skin irritation, and much more. 

Crawl Space Mold & Mildew Remediation

Grate Products offers a wide range of crawl space solutions including mold growth. These includes:

  • Crawl Space Drainage System

Standing water in the crawl space of any home can lead to mold and mildew growth - which, in addition to being a potential health hazard, can become the cause of rot and structural damage. We have crawl space specialized drainage systems that when run into our GrateSump™ Sump Pump System removes standing water from the crawl space.

  • CrawlShield™ Encapsulation System 

Crawl space encapsulation is considered one of the best ways to seal out moisture and prevent mold in a crawl space. To complete the process of sealing the crawl space, we install a patented crawl space encapsulation system to completely eliminate vapors and odors rising from the ground; creating a layer of protection between the dirt floor and your living space.
