Noticing musty odors inside your home? This is a clear sign of mold or mildew issues. That musty smell comes from mildew that is caused by excess moisture or water damage in your crawl space. The air that circulates in your foundation can seep up into your home, resulting in a musty smell.
Air from your crawl space enters your home through the stack effect, which means the damp, humid air that enters your crawl space through vents and foundation walls will linger, worsen, and eventually escape through your home itself.

A healthy crawl space is a moisture-free, odor-free, mold-free, and pest-free crawl space. Taking the necessary measures to keep it clean and dry will only save you headaches in the long run, so it's best to keep up with crawl space maintenance now to avoid bigger issues in the future.
To prevent moisture or musty odors from being in your crawl space or home, we recommend first installing a waterproofing system to dry your crawl space for the structural life of your home. Depending on your situation, you may then also need to encapsulate your crawl space before finally sealing off any crawl space vents or doors to prevent moisture from coming through.
Once thats complete, consider installing a one of our self-draining AquaGuard air filtration and dehumidification systems to keep your crawl space dry, healthy, odor, mold, and critter-free permanently!
