A clear sign of mold issues in your crawl space is any foul or musty odors in your home. Due to the “stack effect,” air from your crawl space can infiltrate your home. If your crawl space has water or mold issues, you will likely experience musty odors inside your home.

Get rid of musty odors inside your home. We offer free inspections to our customers throughout all of central Missouri and Eastern Kansas, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia, Moberly, and Springfield.

Keep Your Crawl Space Dry

A dry crawl space will help you avoid multiple issues that can be caused by water damage. Keeping your crawl space moisture-free can help you avoid mold and odors from infiltrating your home, as well as make your home less attractive to pests. The best thing you can do is catch the problem early and get it taken care of to avoid bigger, more expensive issues in the future.

To prevent moisture or musty odors from being in your crawl space or home, we recommend first installing a waterproofing system to dry your crawl space for the structural life of your home. Depending on your situation, you may then also need to encapsulate your crawl space before finally sealing off any crawl space vents or doors to prevent moisture from coming through.

Once that’s complete, consider installing one of our self-draining Dehumidifier air filtration and dehumidification systems to keep your crawl space dry and healthy, and less hospitable to odors, mold, and pests.
