Crawl Space Mold Remediation Services
Crawl spaces are the most vulnerable place in your home for growing mold as they tend to accumulate high levels of moisture and humidity. In fact, many people do not realize how much mold they have under the home. Once mold is discovered, we recommend calling crawl space mold remediation experts to inspect your crawl space.
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.

Signs of Crawl Space Mold
There are several signs that can lead you to crawl space mold, some can be detected through visible and non visible cues. 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, this is often a first sign that mold is in your crawl space. 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.
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 exhibiting 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. Listen to your body and call your local mold clean up company immediately. By routinely inspecting your home, you can prevent moisture from accumulating and mold from growing. Don’t hesitate to call our experts to remove your mold as early in the process as possible.
Types of Mold in Crawl Spaces
Your crawl space is likely to attract three types of mold, each with a varying degree of risk.
Black mold is the most common and also the one that causes the most concern. It appears dark gray or greenish at times with a fuzzy or powdery surface. Two types of black mold exist: Stachybotrys atra and Stachybotrys chartarum, both release mycotoxins that can cause serious allergic reactions.
White mold is another type that can grow in the crawl space. It mostly sprouts on exposed soil and wooden joists and appears fuzzy. While not as dangerous as black mold, it still has the capacity to release toxins that cause health problems.
Yellow mold is regarded as the house-eating mold, it feeds on wooden structures and organic materials causing them to decay and deteriorate. Yellow mold usually appears flat and usually has the least health concern.
