Crawl spaces are dark and humid areas that are not inspected much. Mold will multiply quickly once it is introduced into this type of environment and your crawl space can soon be filled with mold. Mold in your crawl space affects the indoor air quality which can lead to allergic reactions and worsen respiratory conditions such as asthma, and in the worst cases, affects the structural integrity of your home.
Allergic reaction symptoms you may experience are:
- Itchy eyes
- Persistent coughs
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Irritated skin or rash
Signs you may have mold growing in your crawl space:
- Musty odors
- Wood rot
- Warped or sagging floors
- Water stains on baseboards
- Pest infestations
If you have experienced any of these symptoms or noticed any of these signs, you may have a moldy crawl space on your hands. The solution to this issue is mold remediation and crawl space encapsulation.
At Crawlspaces and More, we use a safe mixture of biodegradable cleaning agents and our proprietary application method to get rid of mold. After the mold is removed, the next step is encapsulation. Encapsulation is designed to keep unwanted moisture out of your crawl space. A high-quality plastic will cover the whole space and vents will be sealed off. A dehumidifier will then be installed to maintain moisture and humidity levels.
Crawl space encapsulation is the only guaranteed way to prevent new growth from forming. The longer you let mold reside in your crawl space, the more you risk long-term health issues and costly damage to your home. Let Crawlspaces and More help protect your health and home. We are proud to provide mold remediation and crawl space encapsulation services for customers in Atlanta, South Carolina, and western North Carolina.
