Can Excess Moisture Inside My Home Cause Breathing Problems?
Dampness caused by visible moisture and high humidity levels can contribute to the development of mold growing inside of your home. Mold exposure can have serious health repercussions, especially for those suffering from allergies, asthma and certain lung conditions. Some of these health consequences include worsening allergies, reduced lung function and an increased risk of having a dangerous asthma attack. On the contrary, even non-suffers face deleterious health effects as well, which includes throat, nose and lung irritation. Additionally, regularly breathing compromised air can lead to long term health issues. As noted, with COVID-19, underlying health issues and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk.
Purifying the Air in Your Home With Crawl Space Waterproofing & Encapsulation
Preventing high humidity levels and vapor transmission exists as the two most fundamental ways you can protect the air quality inside your home. Did you know that 60 percent of the air in the first floor of our homes comes from our crawl space? Without proper crawl space encapsulation, sullied air permeates the air inside your living space, making you unknowingly inhale pollutants harmful to your health. In addition to vapor transmission, humidity levels rise when hot, humid air enters your crawl space through foundation vents. This same air recirculates into your home, leading to excess moisture and mold. Sealing off this area reduces the risk of developing mold in addition to eliminating foul odors caused by moisture trapped inside your crawl space.
