hi, I have excess moisture in my old house (~ 1930s) crawl space. It has a very small cellar and the rest is a crawl space that is only about 16 inches and includes plenty of barriers such as ducts and plumbing, and has only 2 vents. It seems that it would be good to place a vapor barrier and possibly close vents and possibly add a dehumidifier BUT due to the low crawl space it would be somewhere between extremely difficult to impossible to install a vapor barrier. Any suggestions? Thanks!

We found mold (green kind) on the cement peer of our house. We got into the crawspace and with big sheets of plastic that the painters used and just over lapped them on the ground also then we made cutouts around the bottom of the house in put in sqauare vents seems to be working fine
