Moisture in your home is bad for you and your family in so many ways. It is important to have moisture control done in your home, starting in your crawlspace, to make sure you are living in a safe and healthy environment. Here are three things you should know about the dangers of moisture and how moisture control will help your home.
- A lot of moisture invites mold and bacteria to grow in your home. Mold is toxic to your health and can also attract pests and cause damage to your home. Your crawlspace can be the source of your moisture problem and the problems can start there and then work their way up into the rest of your home. Moisture control will control the moisture and humidity levels in your home so you can avoid the outbreak of mold and bacteria.
- All types of pests thrive in a moisture filled environment. A moist and humid home makes for ideal living conditions for rodents, insects and bugs. The mold that grows from moisture just adds fuel to that fire. There are many health risks accompanied with pests and mold, which include, but are not limited to, asthma attacks, bacteria spread to food, damage to your home and bites from pests. Moisture control will prevent your home from becoming the perfect place for pests to settle down and start spreading.
- A moisture filled home can result in quite a few health issues. Mold can impact those who have respiratory problems, allergies, and those with asthma. Someone with a low immune system could also get a serious infection if exposed to mold. Moisture control will prevent your home from becoming one where mold can thrive and cause health issues to you and your family.
