There are various crawlspace moisture control measures that can be utilized based on the situation.

Ventilation to keep air flowing and the other crawlspace moisture control techniques can be the perfect combination to control indoor moisture to minimize the chance of moisture problems resulting in mold colonization.
Avoiding mold is just one benefit of crawlspace moisture control. Another is comfort in your home or business, as well as putting less pressure on your HVAC system to control humidity.
