Why Does My Crawl Space Get Wet?
Your crawl space could be wet for several reasons: 1. Cracks in the foundation or walls allow water and moisture to enter your crawl space. 2. Improper ventilation can allow moisture in. 3. Poor drainage systems also allow moisture and water in. 4. Poor maintenance and not sealing the dirt floor is another common reason your crawl space is wet or damp.
Can The Air In My Crawl Space Enter My Home?
Yes! A large percentage of your home’s air, 40% or more, comes from your crawl space. Air in your crawl space seeps up into your home through the floors, and around heating and air ducts. The air quality of your crawl space can have a negative impact on your home if there is excess moisture and mold. Common health issues caused by poor crawl space air include headaches, fevers, and respiratory problems.
