Common Issue: Mold in Crawl Space
Mold can grow on virtually any organic material so long as moisture and oxygen arepresent. In your home, there are molds that grow on:
Because mold eats or digests what it is growing on, it can damage a building and its furnishings. If left unchecked, mold eventually can cause structural damage to building materials. Molds gradually destroy the things they grow on. You can prevent damage to buildings and building contents, save money and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.
Moisture problems can have many causes. Some moisture problems have been linked to changes in building construction practices since the 1970s. These practices led to buildings that are tightly sealed but, in some cases, lack adequate ventilation. Without adequate ventilation, moisture may build up indoors and mold may grow.A building must be properly designed forclimate, site location, and use, and its design must be accurately followed during construction or the building may have moisture-control problems. Delayed or insufficient maintenance can also lead to moisture problems in buildings. Undiscovered or ignored moisture problems can create an environment in which mold can grow.
When mold is suspected of causing damage to the structural integrity of a building, a structural engineer or other professional with relevant expertise should be consulted.
