Crawlspace Scale

This information is given in effort to assist in understanding the severity levels of humidity concerns in building structures and microbial growth that may be associated with such concerns. Through the 25+ years in the residential and commercial inspection industry we have seen the full range of severity levels in regards to microbial growth and humidity concerns. We have performed over 20,000 inspections and (based on those inspections) have compiled this scale so that our clients can compare their specific situation with what we have seen in the past 25+ years in the industry. This scale was created based on our honest and unbiased opinion.

The descriptions listed show a broad scale of the conditions that can be expected in each scenario. This scale does not take into consideration alterations that may have recently been performed at any specific property. If repairs have recently been performed to address certain factors such as elevated humidity levels or water entry, those specific concerns may no longer be present and this scale will not reflect those recent changes.

THIS SCALE IS NOT SPECIFIED FOR ANY PARTICULAR RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY. IN ADDITION, THIS INFORMATION DOES NOT IMPLY, IN ANY FORM OR FASHION, WHAT REPAIRS SHOULD BE PERFORMED IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. ALL SITUATIONS ARE DIFFERENT AND SHOULD BE TREATED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS. A REPUTABLE SPECIALIST IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SHOULD BE CONSULTED PRIOR TO MAKING ANY ASSUMPTIONS OR TAKING ANY ACTIONS.
