The theories behind the control of humidity in crawlspaces of buildings have changed over the years. It has been previously believed that the proper way to control humidity has been to utilize foundation vents to increase air flow within the crawlspace. The increase of air flow was designed to allow humidity to escape through the foundation vents to the outside of the building. Building codes required installing foundation vents according to the size of the crawlspace.

Building codes have now changes throughout the country to allow for "conditioned crawlspaces". The foundation vents that were originally designed to eliminate humidity actually help to increase the level of humidity in most crawlspaces. Instead of allowing humidity to escape, the foundation vents allowed hot, humid air in the summer to enter the cool crawlspace. The humid air then condensed on the cool water pipes and air conditioning pipes and dramatically increased the level of humidity in the crawlspace.

The increase of humidity created conditions suitable for mold and fungus growth. "Conditioned crawlspaces" eliminate excessive humidity in crawlspaces and help eliminate the conditions that allow for mold and mildew growth. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems to control humidity in crawlspaces.

Lexington Kentucky Testimonials


Cleaned out and insulated crawlspace under the house with protection against moisture, animals and insects. Lined space with protective liner, repaired cracks around pipe and new cement where needed. Great job! Included more than just "clean out", they insulated the space and it feels protected from moisture, mold and bugs. Highly recommend these guys.
