South Carolina Image Slide Mold Testing and InspectionsWe’re South Carolina locals. That’s means that Mold Test USA knows all too well what South Carolinians deal with. It is so hot and so humid here that our beloved Palmetto State is like one long spring break for mold. We also have a lot of crawl spaces that go largely unused. Those small, damp spaces full of organic material for mold to eat are literal breeding grounds.

Coastal areas, like Charleston and Myrtle Beach, are especially damp with constant moisture in the ground. The entire lower part of South Carolina is barely above sea level. In Charleston, you don’t have to dig too deep to find water. If you live in the low country, especially Charleston, a vapor barrier is a must. They are less of a necessity if you like in other parts of the state. However, regardless of where you are, if you have a crawlspace, you must have a vapor barrier intact underneath your home.

What is a Vapor Barrier?

A vapor barrier is a thick piece of plastic that lies on the ground inside the crawlspace. The purpose of the vapor barrier is just what it says. It’s a barrier against vapor. A vapor barrier holds the vapor into the ground, and it keeps your crawlspace from looking like your bathroom after a hot shower. One common misconception about mold is that mold needs water to grow. Mold does not need water in order to grow. The only thing that mold requires is oxygen, a food source, and moisture. It does not have to be wet only moist. So as water vapor swirls underneath your home, the wood from the floor joist gets wet. It’s very common for mold the start growing on the floor joist.

 

If the Mold is In the Crawlspace, Why Should I Worry About It?

Yes. Mold gets into your home in various ways. Remember, mold is completely microscopic. Therefore, it easily gets in around vents, light switches, cracks in wood, etc. Believe it or not 40% of the air you breathe inside of your home comes from the crawlspace beneath your home. Because of this, it is very important for you to have a professional mold test and air quality sample inside of your home.
