What Causes Mold in My Crawlspace?

Causes of Mold Development in a Crawl Space

Causes of Mold Development in a Crawl Space

Molds grow on organic materials that they can feed on and spread. They cannot grow on inorganic materials like glass and metal. Furthermore, they can digest any organic substance or residue including dirt and dust. Consequently, the crawl space floor provides a good amount of dirt and organic material for mold to grow on. Thus, crawl spaces may be an ideal location for mold growth.

  • Water - Mold grows best in damp, humid, and wet conditions. High humidity, pipe leaks, moisture seepage can all contribute to mold growth in a crawl space.
  • Temperature - The ideal temperature for molds to grow is between 77° F and 86° F, which may be easily found in a crawl space.
  • Oxygen - Mold needs much less oxygen to survive, and can even grow in low levels of oxygen, thus they can thrive in crawl space with ease.
