Crawl Space Ready for Winter

Is Your Crawl Space Ready for Winter?

Extremely cold weather conditions in the winter make life a bit difficult for us, animals, and your crawl space too. During winter,  wood rot, mold, and mildew growth, as well as pest infestations and nesting rodents, are common in homes that are unprepared for harsh winter weather.

Factors that Threaten Your Crawl Space’s Health in Winter

Threaten Your Crawl Space’s Health in Winter
  • Cold & Humid Air Circulation - As we all know, cold air travels down, as a result, your crawl space is more frequently visited by cold and humid air in winter. Homes breathe from the bottom up, thus this cold air circulates your house. This may mess up your home’s internal heating systems leading to expensive bills on heating.

  • Condensation & Mold Damage - The humid air condenses on your walls and ground, resulting in wet and damp conditions. Such conditions are highly suitable for mold growth, which is best avoided. You may see a very rapid growth of mold colonies and spreading fungi. Unfortunately, a majority of the air you and your family breathe comes from the crawl space and may have severe effect on health.

  • Pests & Insects - We all seek warmth and shelter in the winter season. Just like us, insects and rodents are no different. They want a warm place to hide away from the cold outside, and your crawl space is the perfect spot. Insects like roaches, spiders, dust mites, and termites all take shelter in your crawl space.
