Since the crawl space is generally not very inviting space, a lot of people never go down there.  It is not until a homeowner has strong musty odors coming up and through the home that they become concerned.  A lot of times this odor is caused by mold and bacteria growth.  If not treated correctly, crawl spaces are generally a damp, humid environment.  This moisture will rise up into the wood above, and over long periods of time will cause mold and bacteria to grow.  Although Colorado generally does not have a high humidity level, all soils hold moisture and in poorly ventilated and enclosed environment such as a crawl space, humidity levels can rise quickly.  If large amounts of water from heavy rains or plumbing leaks are ever introduced into the equation, mold will likely begin to grow.
