Consistently high humidity has let the mold on the wood reproduce and grow across the floor joist.
Thin plastic vapor barriers are weak and rip easily. Once it rips, like this, it can cause all sorts of moisture issues.
To keep the outside air from affecting the humidity and air quality inside the crawl space, we sealed off all exterior entry points.
Once sealed off, we protect the inside crawl space air by regulating it with a dehumidifying air system and a strong and reliable vapor barrier. These products are designed to keep moisture out and humidity low in a crawl space.
This home's crawl space had ripped plastic, ruined insulation, and mold growth all over. We cleaned it out, installed a vapor barrier, a SaniDry dehumidifying air system, and sealed the door to protect it from the increased humidity and moisture issues.
