Mold inside your crawl space is a clear sign that you have moisture issues in your crawl space. Mold needs a damp environment to thrive, so the best way to prevent mold growth is to keep your crawl space clean and dry.
There are a few different types of mold that could grow in your crawl space, with some being more dangerous than others. Most mold appears either white, yellow, green, grey, or black. If it is taken care of quickly, you likely won’t have any issues with air quality. Black mold is generally considered to be the most toxic kind of mold, although it can vary.
