Does My Virginia Home Need Moisture Remediation?
Humidity varies from county to county but the average RH (Relative Humidity) in Virginia is 76%. We
recommend that your crawl space has an RH of 50%-55%. By keeping your crawl space RH in the
“Healthy Zone”, you will significantly reduce fungal, viral and bacterial growth, thus creating a healthier
living space for you and your family. High humidity can lead to wood rot, wood destroying pests and
other structural issues than can cause tens of thousands of dollars. Controlling the humidity level in your
crawl space is vital to the health of your home and your family.
Your Pest Control Problem Could Be Caused By Moisture
These problems can let you know your home is having a problem with invasive moisture.
When moisture is seeping into your crawlspace, attic, and other spaces you can see an increase in cockroaches, termites, camel crickets, and ants.
If you never noticed mold in your home before but suddenly it is appearing. That means moisture could be getting into your home. Mold can attribute to health problems.
Asthma & Allergies
Your family’s increased allergies could be caused by a reduction in air quality. This is generally the first tell-tale sign that your home has hidden moisture you can’t see.
