Mold spores, the seeds of mold, are in the air everywhere. All
they need to grow is organic material such as wood, the right
temperature range, and moisture. Of these, the only one that can
be controlled is moisture.
Dirt crawl spaces have the high humidity levels necessary for mold
growth. Humidity levels from 50% to 90% are easily found in dirt
crawl spaces that have never flooded.
Mold can grow on dirt, insulation, framing and even under your
carpet on the first floor. Mold destroys organic materials as it feeds
on them. Mold reproduces by producing millions of floating airborne
spores, which some people are very sensitive to. Spores can be
dormant for many years, waiting for the right conditions to grow.
Some molds produce mycotoxins, such as the black mold Stachybotrys. Many articles can be found on
the effects of mold and toxic mold.
Don’t panic; there is a solution that will stop your crawl space from being a hospitable environment for mold.
Mold will not grow when the humidity levels are reduced below 50%.
