Is Your Crawl Space Ready for Winter

Is Your Crawl Space Ready for Winter?

Wet winter conditions may spell trouble for an unsealed crawl space. During winter wood rot, mold and mildew growth, as well as pest infestations and nesting rodents, are common in homes that are unaccustomed to such damp winters.

Dangers That Crawl Spaces Have to Face During Winter in Greater Cincinnati, OH

Winter may be about enjoying snowfalls and Christmas with your family, but on the other hand, it can cause your crawl space a great deal of damage. 

Dangers That Crawl Spaces Have to Face During Winter
 

Cold & Humid Air Circulation

Like we all know, cold air travels down, as a result, your crawl space is more frequently visited by cold and humid air in winter. Moreover, homes breathe from the bottom up, thus this cold air circulates your house. This may mess up your home’s internal heating systems leading to expensive bills on heating. 

Effects of Condensation

The humid air condenses on your walls and ground, resulting in wet and damp conditions. Such conditions are highly suitable for mold growth, which is best avoided. You may see a very rapid growth of mold colonies and spreading fungi. Unfortunately, a majority of the air you and your family breathe comes from the crawl space and may have a severe effect on health.
