Possible rental house has musty crawlspace
Looking at homes to purchase to rent out. In this area, very few homes have basements. Most are piers with crawlspace or slab. One property meets all our criteria BUT has a very musty crawlspace -- the smell hits ya the minute you open the door to look under the house. And, a bit of the musty smell can be detected inside the house on the first floor.
How can this be remedied? Would having the crawlspace "encapsulated" solve the issue?
