Improvement of Crawl Space Air Quality

When your crawl space has excessive amounts of water and moisture, the stack effect will cause high humidity in your home. Crawl space air has high humidity and can contain mold spores that can be harmful to your family. If your home's HVAC unit is located in the crawl area, then contaminated air from the crawl space can simply be circulated throughout your home. That's why crawl space air quality needs to be improved.

Why Need Improvement of Crawl Space Air Quality?

Moisture balance, proper ventilation, and cleanliness are the three most important aspects of indoor air quality:

Moisture: Controlling moisture is the first thing to improve crawl space air quality. Mold, fungi, rotten wood, and pests can be the results of a damp crawl space. These can harm the air quality and bring health hazards.

Ventilation: If the air can't pass through the vents, it's impossible to improve the indoor air quality. So, to increase the quality of indoor air, the only way is to create ventilation and let fresh air flow inside.

Cleanliness: The crawl area is typically ignored, but its condition affects your home's condition and air quality. That's why the area should be well-maintained. Check the crawl space and clean it every once in a while to keep the moisture balanced.
