You may be wondering why the vapor barrier in the crawl space is important if the floor is dirty. You don’t want moisture to seep into your crawl space, because it can cause a lot of problems. The fact is that water does not have to come from just leakage, because it can be absorbed directly from the soil in the crawl space also. This moisture can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, and mold and mildew themselves are unhealthy.

This can cause structural damage to the house, including rotting wood and rusty metal. Without a moisture barrier, moisture entering through the soil can cause a short circuit and cause a fire. This water can also cause your pipes to rust and eventually rupture over time. This is why the moisture barrier under the house is so important because it can help prevent damage and possible harm. Installing a vapor barrier in your crawl space can keep the area dry and create a healthier structural space for your home.
