Controlling excessive moisture in your crawlspace is an essential part of keeping your home or business structurally sound and pest free. It’s important to understand the signs, causes, and potential issues that can occur from elevated moisture levels in your crawlspace.

Signs of Excessive Moisture

  • Fallen insulation
  • Standing water
  • Musty smell
  • Fungal growth
  • Excessive condensation forming on A/C ductwork

Identifying the Excessive Moisture Source

Rainfall Drainage Issue

Water can make its way into the crawlspace from gutter overflow, grading issues with the yard, or compromised foundations walls.

Plumbing Issue

A plumbing leak from a broken or leaking pipe could be causing moisture accumulation in the crawlspace.

A/C Ductwork Condensation

The outside of the A/C ductwork in a crawlspace can “sweat” excessively in the hotter, more humid months. The cool air inside of the ductwork that is blowing into your home is also causing the exterior of the metal ductwork in your hot, humid crawlspace to drop in temperature. When the cool ductwork comes in contact with the hot, humid air in the crawlspace, condensation can accumulate all around the ductwork (similar to the condensation around a glass of ice water when you walk outdoors in the summer).
