Why are crawl spaces such a concern?

Crawl spaces are often earthen spaces between the ground and the sub-floor region of homes located in Falls Church, VA and could contain mold. These areas are of concern because they are subject to all the things that make mold grow such as;

  • Exposed organic materials (soil, a wet earthen floor)
  • High relative humidity (passive vents allow humid air to pass as well)
  • Materials which tend to grow mold (wood joists and sub-flooring, paper backed insulation)
  • Lack of ventilation or air movement
  • Water at the foundation due to poor grading and drainage

Crawl spaces also raise concern when HVAC ductwork moves through them potentially drawing in air ambient to the crawl space. In some cases, if mold is present in the space under your Falls Church, VA home it can increase the mold spore concentration within the areas above.

Some crawl spaces with mold found in houses located in Falls Church, VA are not easy to inspect. They are confined spaces and are usually difficult to access fully. None-the-less, it is a good idea to include the crawl space as part of a mold/moisture inspection, so you will better understand what conditions are present.

We can help you understand the status of a crawl space better in your existing house or a home you may be considering to purchase. Let us know if you have a crawl space so we can plan to have equipment and time to inspect it.
