Moisture can cause serious and expensive damage to your mobile or manufactured home.
Precision Vapor Barriers: Moisture Reduction
Moisture in your crawl space can greatly affect your homes air quality by promoting the growth of dangerous molds and fungus. Florida’s high levels of humidity add to the possibility of damage caused by moisture in your home. Other than the dangers of mold and fungus, moisture can cause expensive issues to your homes floors and sub-frame.
High humidity increases the likelihood of air-borne irritants. When people react to allergens in the air, they often come down with sniffles, watery eyes, and may develop a skin irritation in some cases.
If one of your families is continually struggling with allergies in the house, it may be a sign of high humidity. The moisture in the air collects and spreads dust mites and mold spores.
If your allergies are worse indoors than they are outdoors, it is a good indicator that you need to reduce the level of humidity in your mobile home.
Mold Spots and Scavenger Hunt
Mold spots form when moisture cannot escape from a certain area. Humidity will increase the speed at which these grow and spread.
Condensation is a huge sign of excessive humidity in your mobile home. What looks like water will start to form on metal or cool surfaces:
- Glass jars, nic-knacks, etc.
- Faucets and Water Spouts
This can eventually lead to rust, mildew, and stains.
If you are catching whiffs of a musty smell around your home, that could be caused by too much moisture in the air. Musty odors come from mildew and mold, which both grow and spread due to high moisture levels.
Bulges Under Siding
Moisture in the air that can’t escape due to well-locked seals will force its way through the interior wall. As a result, it will damage your siding and create bulges on the exterior walls of your home, eventually bending and warping the siding.
You will also be able to tell when you have excess humidity when blisters and bubbles begin to form on exterior areas you have painted. All these problems are the result of high humidity. Humidity can be disastrous to a mobile home. It can lighten your wallet and make you sick too! It can lead to respiratory problems and black mold which can be deadly if not tended to quickly.
Carpets, wood flooring, wood joints and frames, paint, siding, pipes, canned goods, and ceilings can all be damaged from excess moisture in the air.
High humidity can also lead to fungus and rust that causes mechanical failures in HVAC systems and plumbing.
