Why do I have mold in my crawl space?

Much like the basement, the nature of your crawl space lends itself to moisture issues and mildew growth. Crawl spaces are dark and often damp due to moisture from the ground or other causes. Mold forms essentially wherever oxygen and moisture are present, so it's no surprise that crawl spaces can become a breeding ground for mold.

Crawl space mold questions & answers

Can a moldy crawl space make me sick?

Mold is a fungal growth that helps break down plant and animal matter, and can be found in a variety of places where oxygen and moisture are present. Mold is an example of an environmental allergen, and, according to the Cleveland Clinic, one in five people in the United States have environmental allergies. So, mold in your crawl space can in fact make you sick, causing runny noses, rashes, and other symptoms.
