Crawl space is needed to have clearer indoor air at home. If there isn't any ventilation system or poor ventilation then mold might grow due to moisture and damp environment.
To ensure proper ventilation in the crawl space, you should have one square foot of screened venting for every 150 square feet of crawl space area. For instance, if your crawl space measures 30 feet by 30 feet, you'll require vents with a total square footage of 6 square feet, according to IRC.
Vents should be placed in a way that should allow air to flow freely throughout the crawl space and encourage cross ventilation. The location better be near the perimeter. This will help prevent dead air zones.
Depending on factors such as climate, local building codes, and the condition of your crawl space the approach to crawl space ventilation may vary.
