What Is Crawl Space Humidity? 

Crawl space humidity, or excessive moisture in the lower sections of homes, poses a significant risk due to its proximity to the important structures responsible for supporting the weight of your home.  

High humidity levels, especially above 60%, can cause various issues: 

Ensuring proper humidity control is essential for a healthy and safe home. Let’s protect your home together from these risks. 

What Causes Crawl Space Humidity? 

High humidity in crawl spaces can stem from multiple sources: 

  • Water Intrusion: Leaks and groundwater contribute to damp conditions. 
  • Soil Floors: Natural moisture emission from exposed soil. 
  • Vents: Outdoor humidity entering through open vents. 
  • Temperature Disparities: Condensation due to cooler crawl space temperatures. 
  • Missing Vapor Barriers: Ground moisture entering the crawl space floor. 
  • Water Pooling: Excess humidity from standing water. 

Addressing these factors promptly is key to safeguarding your home’s structure and your family’s health. 

Can You Fix Crawl Space Humidity? 

Yes, crawl space humidity can be managed! However, it requires a comprehensive approach for lasting effectiveness.

A humidity range of 40 to 50 percent is optimal. Lower levels can cause uncomfortable dry air, while higher levels promote mold growth and other moisture issues. A professionally installed crawl space dehumidifier, combined with waterproofing and encapsulation methods, is essential. Contact Foundation Recovery Systems for a free inspection and estimate. 

The time needed to address crawl space humidity depends on the severity of the issue, but we aim to provide quick and thorough solutions.
