Common Places for Moisture
Moisture problems can lead to mold, mildew, or other biological growth, potentially causing variety of health problems for susceptible individuals. In addition, moisture issues can lead to rot and structural damage. When addressing any interior mold issue, the moisture source must be addressed to provide a long term solution.
The absence of proper attic ventilation allows moisture to become trapped in the attic, potentially causing attic mold growth. As with any interior mold issue, addressing the moisture source is key. AdvantaClean experts can help diagnose your attic moisture and attic mold issues by properly recommending and implementing an attic ventilation system or other corrective measures.
CRAWL SPACE MOISTURE
Many crawl spaces have an exposed earthen floor, which allows ground moisture to evaporate into the space under your home, increasing the crawl space moisture levels in both the air and sub-structure of your home – especially if you don’t have a vapor barrier. Our crawl space moisture specialists can address the moisture source– from simple repairs to comprehensive vapor barriers, crawl space ventilation systems and crawl space dehumidifier installations.
The lack of a basement ventilation system and/or basement dehumidifier can contribute to basement humidity control issues. In addition, improper construction or maintenance, lack of landscaping or improper grading and lack of and rain gutters can also contribute to basement moisture control issues.
