Crawlspace Moisture Problems and Solutions

A damp crawlspace can lead to numerous problems for any homeowner. Excess moisture can promote the growth of mold, lead to wood rot, and attract pests that thrive in damp environments. D & D Pest Control Co. is an expert in identifying and resolving crawlspace moisture issues, ensuring your home remains safe, healthy, and pest-free.

Types of Crawlspace Moisture Problems

  • High Humidity: Humidity levels above 50% can foster mold growth and attract pests.
  • Standing Water: Water pooling caused by poor drainage or leaks can cause structural damage over time.
  • Condensation: Air ducts and pipes can sweat, leading to water droplets accumulating on surfaces.
  • Mold and Mildew: These fungi can grow in damp areas, leading to health issues and unpleasant odors.
  • Wood Rot: Excess moisture can weaken wooden structures, impacting the integrity of your home.

How Crawlspace Dehumidifiers Can Help

Installing a dehumidifier in your crawlspace can prevent these problems by reducing the humidity levels, and making the area less hospitable for pests and mold. A dehumidifier works by extracting water from the air, maintaining a dry environment that protects the structural components of your home and improves air quality.
