Mold colonies love crawl spaces. They're dark, poorly ventilated, easily susceptible to moisture and filled with dust, dirt and lots of nooks and crannies where the fungus can grow and spread rapidly, unhindered. Since these spaces are separate from the main living area, problems can go undetected for long periods of time.
You may never use your crawl space but if there is mold down there you need to get it addressed right away. While the problem may appear a small and cosmetic one at first allowing the microorganisms to flourish can lead to serious issues.
Mold releases allergens into the air which can move up into your home via cracks and the HVAC system. These can contribute to health problems such as respiratory illnesses. Moreover, rampant infestations lead to rotting timbers and structural damage that cost a fortune to repair.
When water enters your crawl space there is potential for mold to grow. Water can enter in a variety of ways. For example:
In reality, mold spores are present everywhere just waiting for an opportunity to grow. To do so they also need organic materials to feed on such as wood joists, carpeting and insulation all of which are present in crawl spaces.
