Your crawl space may have been repaired before, but chances are, it may have been done incorrectly. In the past, the main source of ventilation has been outside air. This is inadequate though because spring and summer air can be too humid. Because of this, the air actually causes the problem.
In order to correctly repair your crawl space, Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services will use various methods. Depending on your situation, they may install a drainage system and/or a sealed sump system. Using a heavy ground vapor barrier, they can block outside humidity. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services may also seal vents and sometimes install a dehumidifier.
