We have had moisture issues in our crawlspace this wet summer. We are thinking we will try a dehumidifier to see if this method works. Any suggestions?

The insulation is very wet, and we didn't know to close our vents. We had the typical very expensive quotes, but are thinking we will try a dehumidifier to see if this method works, closing the vents, new vapor barrier paper, etc. will help. My question is since there was some mold on some of the joists, do we really need an $700.00ish fungicide treatment to treat whole area? We will do if necessary, but it seems a bit much and maybe not so home healthy? They also are saying we will need to remove all the insulation, and replace with new to do this, this is $800.00. Any suggestions are appreciated asap!

It has been a very wet summer in NC this year and that is causing havoc in all the vented crawl spaces in the area.

  • Vented crawl spaced worked fine before...
