Repair for leaky and moldy crawl spaces
Homes constructed without a basement are likely to have a crawlspace instead. If a crawlspace is not sealed off from the weather and environment outside, or if the home lacks a waterproofing system, moisture and humidity can cause you headaches and serious problems for the stability of the foundation. In many cases, the crawlspace will collect water during times of heavy precipitation. Wooden supports and floor joists can experience rot and rotten wood is attractive to pests which can damage your home. Perhaps most worryingly, excess moisture can lead to the growth of molds which is widely known to cause serious health problems including eye and skin irritation, headaches, asthma and fatigue.

Health Problems Associated with Mold
The Importance of Waterproofing Your Basement or Crawlspace
Moisture can result in the growth of the growth of mold and mildew in any area of the home. Water seeping into your home’s basement or crawlspace and collecting in stagnant pools are some common causes for the growth of mold and mildew in your home’s basement or crawl space. It is of significant importance for you to be on the lookout for signs of the growth of mold and mildew in any area of your home, especially in light of the fact that it can give rise to a wide range of health problems for homeowners and their families.
Allergic reactions can be caused by mold spores in the air as well as the growth of black mold in your home. Those with a sensitive or compromised immune system often begin to suffer from these allergic reactions shortly after the first exposure. The level of severity of the allergic reaction generally depends on the severity of the black mold growth . Common allergy symptoms include red eyes, cough, irregularity in blood pressure, headaches, hives on skin, concentration problems, lethargy, development of rashes, memory loss and nausea. Even despite an apparent allergic reaction, in most cases, there is production of toxins in the body called mycotoxin, which may lead to nasal, skin or ocular irritation.
Those suffering with chronic lung disorders may suffer from acute infections and associated complications as a result of exposure to toxic molds. Due to the toxic odor, it’s quite common that people can also begin to experience acute reactions , for example, respiratory issues and fever. Some of the more common respiratory problems include asthma, uneasiness in respiration and even bleeding in lungs.
Pain and Urological Issues
In cases of long term exposure to molds, some people also suffer severe pain and function issues related to their disgestive systems and urological areas. In many area homes, homeowners report of several issues including urinary tract infections, pain in internal organs such as liver, problems in urination, digestion problems and more.
There are various typical problems of the eye that are caused by allergic reaction resulting from contact with black mold. Inflammation, redness, itchiness and irritation in and around the eyes are the common symptoms of an allergic reaction due to the presence of mold in your home’s air. It is wise to ask your family physician about mold reactions. Eye drops, antihistamines and cold compresses can provide relief from these bothersome issues.
Exposure to mold or breathing in air infected with mold spores can give rise to a significant number of lung problems such as Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis Lung Fibrosis, and Aspergillosis. Family members affected with such conditions can experience tightness in chest and lungs, mild-to-severe chest pain, and an increased amount of phlegm. The immune system creates larger amounts of mucus in order to lower the amount of mold spores entering the lungs, and expel them out of the lungs through phlegm.
