A humid crawl space can cause the wooden materials underneath your home (including support beams) to begin warping, rotting, and decaying. These rotting wood support beams can lead to expensive structural repair work for you to have to deal with.
Crawl space humidity can lead to the development of dangerous mold and bacteria. This mold can cause a variety of health problems for you and your family. The longer you wait to have your humid crawl space taken care of, the more problems it’s going to cause for you in the long run. Crawl space humidity is associated with damaged, rotting, decaying crawl spaces. However, Bix Basement Systems can easily take care of your crawl space humidity by installing a dehumidifier.
