Have you walked around your home lately and checked to make sure the ground and flower bed elevations around the foundation of the home are correct. You should never have the ground or flower bed mulch in direct contact with any untreated building materials. You should also have proper clearance around crawlspace vents to allow for ventilation but not allow water to penetrate. Doing this simple step every spring, along with having the crawlspace and home annually inspected for moisture and wood destroying pests can help in preventing possible future moisture issues.
