How do you know if your home has mold growth in the crawl space?

 

Here in Tampa, one thing that is really crucial for people to think with is that during the rainy season, mold growth in crawl spaces can occur on the bottom of the home.

 

If your home has space between the ground and subfloor, like a crawl space, then that hot humid air can actually come up and establish mold growth, such as Penicillium and Aspergillus, on the bottom planks.

 

Why is this an issue though? It’s just the bottom of the home. You don’t even see it.

 

Well, mold releases microscopic particles in the form of a gas called Mycotoxins. Mycotoxins create adverse physical reactions such as headaches, brain fog, and respiratory issues and in some cases can impact the central nervous system to name a few.

 

Typically, from mold growth, there’s a musty smell that can actually intrude into the home due to the mycotoxins entering into the building envelope. You know when you hear, “Oh it’s just an old Florida smell!” NO – that’s actually a musty smell and if it’s musty that means mold.
