You may not think much about them, but your crawl space vents are an important part of your home for a variety of reasons. Not only are they important to ensure that your house is well-ventilated, they are also crucial to several other systems within the house.
The vents provide air circulation that helps dissipate excess moisture and prevent mold growth.
If you find mold in your crawl space walls, joists or ductwork it could eventually affect the flooring, drywall, and insulation in the upper portions of your home.
Presence of mold may also indicate there may be insects, including termites in the space. If insects are present then there is a good chance rodents may also be present. Mold also indicates a level of moisture that could eventually affect the flooring, drywall, and insulation in the upper portions of your home.
Why You Need Crawl Space Vents
It’s important to understand that without crawl space vents, the ground of your house will be a magnet for both moisture and mold. Crawl space vents are the most common and effective method of making sure that you keep the moisture in your crawl spaces under control. Enclosed crawl spaces almost always end up absorbing a lot of water. And due to the lack of vents, they tend to stay wet. This means mold, moisture and further degradation of your floorboards.
