Mold spores can permeate through the air flow of your home through penetrations in the sub-floor or through leaky air ducts. If your wet crawl space is developing mold growth it will eventually cause structural damage to wood. In addition, mold growth creates poor air quality inside of your home.

Mold is notorious for its rapid growth so detecting mold early is crucial to preventing a larger issue. Taking the important steps when you first detect mold can help in preventing major damage to health and property. Below are some of the main signs of mold in your home.
A simple way to detect if you have a mold issue is if you have an unusual or musty smell permeating throughout your home. This is often a first sign that mold is in your crawl space. In addition, if your crawlspace lacks the proper insulation or ventilation required to keep mold out, it is easy for moisture to get in and stay in. Pay attention to the odors and don’t put off addressing the root of the problem. A musty smell may require a crawl space mold removal or a dehumidifier to remedy the problem.
Mold growth is bound to occur with any moisture that has built up over a long period of time. If you are unsure if your home has water issues, there are signs to look for such as water stains, wall discoloration and warped floors. Many times, the texture of your walls or ceilings may be trying to warn you of mold growth as well. Watch out for any dampness, peeling, bowing, bubbling, cracking or bulging in your wallpaper – telltale signs that moisture has been lurking within your home.
If you are experiencing worsened or uncommon allergy symptoms, your body may be telling you something is off with your environment. Breathing in mold spores causes a response in the body similar to an allergic reaction. As time goes on, the symptoms will worsen.

Don’t hesitate to call our experts to remove your mold as early in the process as possible.

Black Mold Removal
Our black mold removal technicians are experts in removing and/or preventing toxic levels of mold. In particular, black mold is the most common type of mold that can grow in your home. Leaks, condensation, and poor ventilation are just some of the factors of what causes black mold.
Of the three types of mold we discuss here, black mold is certainly the mold type that causes the most concern. Regardless of the type of black mold you have growing in your crawl space or basement, if the mold growth is left unchecked, you may begin to experience minor, yet unpleasant, side effects such as a stuffy nose or coughing.
But is black mold dangerous? Note that there are different types of black mold with varying degrees of toxicity. Two types exist: Stachybotrys atra and Stachybotrys chartarum. Both of these types of black mold release mycotoxins that can cause serious allergic reactions. Especially if you have asthma or allergies, you will want to hire a black mold removal professional who can eradicate the harmful mold in your home immediately. Black mold appears dark gray or greenish at times with a fuzzy or powdery appearance. If you see any signs of black mold, be sure to contact our black mold removal technicians to remediate it right away.
White Mold Remediation
White mold is another type that can grow in your home’s crawl space or basement. This mold type is characterized by sprouting on exposed soil and wooden joists and appears to have a fuzzy texture.
While not as dangerous as black mold, left unchecked, white mold still has the ability to release toxins that cause health problems. No matter if it is your crawl space or your basement, if you notice white mold in your home, be sure to get in touch with white mold remediation experts soon.
Our white mold removal technicians can help prevent poor indoor air quality, potential breathing problems, and possible damage to the interiors of your home. Give us a call at 704-270-2721 to see how we can help.
Yellow Mold Removal
Yellow mold is regarded as the house-eating mold. This type of mold feeds on wooden structures and organic materials, causing them to decay and deteriorate, creating an unsightly appearance. Yellow mold usually appears flat and has a distinct gold color. Unlike black and white mold types, yellow mold usually has the least health concern. However, left unchecked this mold can wreak havoc on your wooden structures.
While it is the least hazardous to your health, over time yellow mold can have significant impact on your home’s wooden interiors. As a result, if you are noticing signs of yellow mold and decay, be sure to get in touch with yellow mold removal experts who know how to properly remove your yellow mold.
