About Healthy Spaces in Evansville, IN

News and Events

Whether it's from spring melt, rain, or a broken sprinkler system, Evansville basements are wet right now. The most common spots for leaking include the walls and the seam where the walls meet the floor slab. For many homeowners, there is no point in any given year where their basement is dry. When a space is constantly wet like that, it's the perfect recipe for a mold disaster and it makes a good portion of your square footage into useless space.

It was about 7:30 on a Saturday morning and I'd just gotten my son dressed and was going to start some laundry. I walked down the stairs to our finished basement and my socks were soaked as I stepped on the carpet. The entire basement was leaking and the carpet felt like a giant sponge! I went over to the utility room to check the sump pump and the pit was full, but the motor didn't appear to be working.

I realized just recently that I can’t imagine putting all of the “first” things into the same regular Christmas box and put it in our dirt crawlspace for another year. I know that our crawlspace isn’t a safe place to store things. We have groundwater intrusion seasonally and that crawlspace is nasty. Every year, one of our Christmas memories succumbs to the mold and mildew—this year, it was our Christmas tree skirt.

One of the most common complaints in homes with crawlspaces and unfinished basements is cold floors. In the past, cold floors were addressed by shoving fiberglass or similar insulation between the subfloor joists. Initially this seems like a great solution. The insulation will help keep the floors warmer, right? Unfortunately, that isn’t really the case.

Spiders move in to crawlspaces because there are plenty of crickets and other pests to eat. Pests enter a crawlspace because there is an abundance of mold and fungi to eat, and plenty of moisture. Stop the cycle--lower relative humidity and you can rid yourself of pests, too!

Heat moves from areas of higher temperature to areas of lower temperature and the earth below grade is usually at a lower temperature than what people would find comfortable in their homes--especially in the winter. Consequently, there is a constant stream of heat loss by conduction through a home's foundation and into the outside earth.

If you’re noticing the moist soil conditions outside, it’s important to check for indoor issues as well. Since the weather has been so warm, many of us retreat indoors during the hottest parts of the day without realizing that the humid air outside is creating poor air quality inside.
