Why Do You Need Vent Covers in Your Crawl Space

You probably don’t think about the vents in your crawl space when you think about covering your vents. A vented crawl space can gain many problems over time. Mold and mildew will start to grow in your crawl space because of damp air that creeps in through the vents. In the Columbia summer, warm air gets into your crawl space and is drawn to cooler areas. The extreme humidity causes wood rot when it absorbs into your wooden piers and beams. As the wooden beams become weak, their failure can lead to even greater foundation problems.
