An Alarming Discovery: Tackling Mold Growth in a Crawlspace

Mold Restoration

Homeownership often comes with its share of challenges, and for one couple, their new property brought to light a pressing issue: mold in the crawlspace. Recognizing the need for immediate action due to potential health risks, they turned to our experts for a comprehensive solution.

The Mold Growth in Question

Upon purchasing their new property, the couple knew of its issues, particularly in the crawlspace. High humidity and moisture levels had created an environment conducive to mold growth, posing a potential threat to the health of the homeowners and their grandchildren. Realizing a dire situation was on their hands, they reached out to us for a thorough assessment and remediation.

Our crew approached the mold issue systematically, addressing both the visible problem and its underlying causes. The crawlspace lacked a vapor barrier and adequate dehumidification, creating conditions ripe for mold development. We took multiple steps to conduct a thorough mold remediation.

The first step involved carefully removing mold from the affected surfaces, particularly the joists in the crawlspace. Our IICRC-certified specialists used industry-standard techniques and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA)-certified equipment throughout the mold remediation process to ensure effective elimination.

The mold growth on the crawlspace was extensive.

The exposed joists were encapsulated with mold-resistant paint to prevent future mold growth. This added layer of protection serves as a barrier against moisture and humidity, reducing the likelihood of mold growing again.

We dried the affected area with a specialized crawlspace dehumidifier during the mold remediation. Doing so ensured that humidity levels were optimal, preventing mold growth and establishing a healthier living environment.

The comprehensive approach adopted by our technicians not only addressed the immediate mold issue but also provided lasting protection against future problems. The homeowners, particularly concerned about their grandchildren’s health, were reassured that the crawlspace was mold-free. Excellent work, team!
