Understanding Crawl Space Humidity in Dallas
How your crawl space can damage your health and home
When your crawl space becomes affected by high humidity levels, it can be detrimental to your health and lead to serious issues with your home. When moisture levels rise, it can lead to damaged and rotting crawl spaces. But the professionals at Vesta Foundation Solutions can arm you with the right defense against the effects of crawl space humidity for your Dallas home, starting with a free crawl space inspection.
What leads to crawl space humidity?
It’s natural for a house to expand and contract over time, warping the seams ever so slightly and even causing openings to form between the floor and the crawl space area. As warm air rises and escapes through the attic, it forms a vacuum, pulling air from the outside upward. When this air is wet or humid, the crawl space ends up with humid air as well.
