House Foundation Repair: Home Settlement Issues Most of the settlement issues with new homes have to do with the climate and soil movement.

Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation

What is Mold? Before we can talk about Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation, you must first understand what mold is. Mold is just another word we use for fungi. Fungi are found relatively everywhere and have many different kinds that can thrive in various locations within your home. Mold mostly grows in moist and dark places but can also be in dry areas.

  • I recently discovered a mild mold problem in my crawlspace and begin my search for a company to remediate. Fresh Air Tech. seemed to have the best treatment plan for my situation and was the most competitive when it came down to the price. I had the mold removed/sprayed with prevention chemicals, crawlspace cleaned with a new vapor barrier and a dehumidifier installed. I didn't know what to expect never having to deal with this before but I can ensure you these guys do not cut corners and did an excellent job. The cleaning crew (3 guys) arrived about 8AM and were under the house until about 4:45PM cleaning and sanding taking a quick 30 minute lunch break around noon. They returned the next day to install the vapor barrier and to finish cleaning up. The dehumidifier also comes with a monitor that displays the temp and moisture level down in the crawlspace which i thought was pretty cool. Excellent job, thanks again team.
