Do you have a wet crawl space? It's a common problem here in the Poconos, and one that often goes unaddressed. Most houses in Northeastern Pennsylvania were built with crawl space vents, which might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but they've proven to be a huge liability to the health of homes and the families living in them. These vents allow damp air from the outside into your crawl space, encouraging mold growth and leading to the eventual decomposition of the lumber structure of your home itself. In time, sill plates, floor joists and even the beams themselves will rot, requiring very expensive repair. There are also many health risks associated with with exposure to the mold spores that make their way into your home from your vented crawl space. Respiratory problems, such as allergies and asthma, will only worsen with exposure to these mold spores.
