Crawlspace mold removal is not like removing mold from the inside of your home or business. Most crawl spaces are only 2 to 3 feet in height. Imagine if you had to work in such tight quarters, along with spiders and dead rodents. The spiders alone are enough reason to hire a professional certified and insured mold removal service contractor.
How to hire a certified crawlspace mold removal company
The crawl space under your home needs dry air and properly controlled ventilation. To avoid wood rot and mold growth, the ground and air moisture need to be monitored and controlled because continuous high humidity levels are the perfect environments for mold and mildew.
Unfortunately, they are also one of the main contributors to indoor allergens, mold, rot, insects, and that “musty odor”. A healthy, dry crawlspace is important to the health of the building and the people. Simple air movement and dehumidification of the crawlspace will not remove the growth of mold and mildew.
In the crawlspace this could include waterproofing proper drainage, use of sump pumps, French drains or redirecting gutter downspouts. Crawlspaces generally need a vapor barrier with 100% coverage and overlapping taped seams in your crawlspace. In some cases a vapor barrier and sealing the crawlspace with MaxGuard and applying OXYPAR-DC, which is a non-toxic, non-VOC’s, and Biodegradable cleaning agent, is all that is needed which is a EPA registered antimicrobial sealer. Controlling ground moisture release with a vapor barrier is an important part of the total solution in a crawlspace. We will identify additional contributors to water, mold growth or moisture issues at your home or business.
