Crawl Space Problems in Durham
While it is important to maintain the health and safety of your crawl space, it is not a good idea to go into this hazardous area under your Durham home by yourself to look for problems. However, there are several symptoms you can be aware of throughout the rest of your living space, such as increased pest activity, elevated humidity, musty odors, high energy and utility bills, and sagging or uneven floors. Once you reach out to Tar Heel Basement Systems for a free inspection, we will also check for pests and high humidity, as well as mold, condensation, water leaks or flooding, damaged vapor barriers, wet insulation, wood rot, open vents, and loose doors.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Durham
Humidity is at the heart of what is causing your crawl space problems. Durham has a humid subtropical climate, so this notoriously muggy air, especially during the summer, enters your home through open crawl space vents. These vents also allow bugs and other pests inside, as well as runoff from the average annual 46 inches of rainfall the area typically experiences. This creates a perfect storm for mold growth, wood rot, and other issues. The stack effect also results from open vents. This natural bottom-to-top airflow pattern allows mold spores and unconditioned air to circulate in your home, leading to additional health and safety hazards.
Excessive humidity in your crawl space can lead to many problems including mold growth, pest infestations, and health issues for your family. Learn more about how this problem starts in your crawl space and what you can do to fix it.
