Two Out of Three Homes in America Have Elevated Levels of Mold Spores in Their Home!
This means that your crawl space or basement probably has higher levels of humidity. Mold appears with humidity and can affect your interior through small drafts and HVAC systems which blow spores throughout your living area. When left untreated, the health effects can be disastrous to you and your family.
What’s That Smell in My Home’s Crawl Space?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 65% of the air we breathe on the first floor of our house comes from the crawl space and basement. These locations pick up mold spores, dust mites and other toxic pollutants, and as your HVAC system runs, they are pulled into the interior of the home through the wall and floor penetrations. The commonly called “Stack Effect” or “Chimney Effect” is to blame.
To be simplified…All of the dirty, unhealthy air inside of your home takes its origin from the crawl and basement. As you heat and cool the air inside of your home, you are also pulling in the pollutants growing inside the crawl space and basement. Sometimes odor is the best indicator, but other times, pollutants are odorless!
The Moldy Truth
We can find mold spores and the seeds of mold, everywhere in the air. At an acceptable levels, pollutants do not pose a threat to MOST of us. When the heat and humidity begin to rise in late spring, mold spores start to wake up from its winter sleep and then start to breed and feed. It can be a tough task to calculate the humidity and temperature fluctuation of the outside world, but it is easier for us to control what happen inside our house!
