Located in northeastern Illinois, Elk Grove Village is a municipality that lies just adjacent to the city of Chicago. Known for the herd of elk that lives in a grove in Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village is also home to the largest industrial park in the country.
With its proximity to the Windy City, it’s not a stretch to imagine that Elk Grove Village shares the same climate – harsh winters and thunderstorms common during spring and summer. All that precipitation has to go somewhere, and unfortunately, a lot of it settles in the crawl space of our homes.
The air in our homes circulates through the crawl space. Thus, having a wet and damp crawl space is something homeowners shouldn’t ignore. Aside from the musty smell that emanates from the crawl space, the damp and dark conditions are perfect for mold to grow in. And once they take hold in a home’s crawl space, expect mold spores to circulate through the house, causing health risks for you and your family.
No one likes to live in a musty home, much less be affected by mold spores that can cause asthma, allergies, and breathing problems. Thus, once a musty smell is noticed, you should have your crawl space checked right away.
