Mold has been found not only to damage personal property, but also to seriously affect the health of many residents within a household, especially those with asthma or allergies. If you can see mold growth, even if it’s only small, you should take action immediately.

Small mold patches can spread and the fact that there is any mold shows that the conditions in your home are right for mold to grow. A residential crawl space that isn’t properly ventilated or taken care of can attract a lot of fungus, decay, bugs, reptiles and rodents, as well as many other unwanted critters. They are attracted to the warm and moist conditions of the crawl space and start calling the new area their home. This also means that your family is breathing in this moist, humid air that probably contains many mold spores.

Mold spores can cause serious health problems for your family, especially if they have chronic breathing conditions such as asthma. Crawl space musty odors can also trigger many allergies and severe respiratory infections.
