Most Homes in the Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Allentown, and Harrisburg Areas are Susceptible to Dangerous Mold Growth in the Crawl Space
If you’ve noticed white streaks on your crawl space walls, or a musty smell emanating from your crawl space, chances are the area is infected with mold and/or mildew growth.
While it might seem that mold in your crawl space is “normal,” the truth is that it can cause serious damage to your family’s health.
- Air from your crawl space (or basement) circulates into the air in your family’s home
- Because many homes in the Philadelphia, King of Prussia, York, Harrisburg, and Allentown areas were built with open crawl spaces, it makes the area under your home an easy target for flooding, mold, and mildew growth
- If your crawl space has a dirt floor, this will worsen the problem because when rain storms hit, and your yard is saturated, the water has easy access. This leads to flooding, water damage, and can cause structural damage if left untreated
