Mold Remediation Services
Homes are vulnerable for mold growing as they tend to accumulate high levels of moisture and humidity. Once mold is discovered, we recommend calling mold remediation experts to inspect your home.
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 Remediation Process
Mold remediation is a several step process that effectively controls the fungi spores and finds the causes of a mold outbreak to help stop it from happening again.
Your home will be searched for visible signs of mold. Mold Remediation experts will also take air samples to figure out what type of mold is in your home. They can do this because the airborne spores have been triggered to reproduce and are no longer dormant.
The areas that the mold was found in is then sealed off. The mold is contained to help prevent its spread into other areas of the home. Heaters, fans and cooling systems everywhere in the house must be shut off, they will move spores around and make it likely for mold to grow elsewhere.
A high-efficiency air purification filter will be placed into the home’s HVAC unit to clear the house of any active spores. This will help prevent the spores from remaining and turning into fungi.
Anti-fungal substances are used to clean the existing areas of mold. This type of cleaning mold will help prevent any more mold from growing. The non-porous and hard locations such as a bathtub or sink can be cleaned with an approved biocide. Once the porous area is infected, the ones with deeper mold growths will have to be removed and replaced.
The last step of the mold remediation process is to sanitize your house. Everything in the home must be sanitized such as all clothes, furniture, curtains and similar items.
Signs of Mold

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.
