A dirt, vented, or unconditioned crawl space under a home in Owensboro, KY creates a high humidity problem as the earth contains high levels of moisture. This moisture or water vapor moves up into the crawl space. Moisture and organic material are the right combination for mold and mildew, the cause of musty smells and odors.
Damp environments are unhealthy and destructive places where mold thrives and spreads by producing millions of airborne spores. In turn, heating and cooling costs are higher, especially if you have a vented dirt crawl space. Insects and critters of all kinds love damp environments and wet materials.
