The worst four letter word when talking about the crawl space.
If you neglect your crawl space, you're inevitably going to be faced with mold issues.
First sign of moisture issues!
If you have bat insulation between your floor joists and it starts hanging down or falling to the floor, guess what? You have moisture issues. That insulation is like a sponge, soaking up the moisture and holding it right next to your floor joists.
Removing mold is usually done one of two ways. Either harsh chemicals are sprayed on the affected area, or a much more in depth process of soda blasting the mold off.
We believe soda blasting is the best method for removing mold from the crawl space
Soda blasting is sand blasting with baking soda. You use compressed air and an abrasive media (baking soda in this case) to blast the mold off of the floor joist, sub floor, support beams, and any other surfaces it has started to grow on.
This is a crawl space that we treated for mold. Insulation is hanging down and full of moisture. Mold is on the floor joists, sub floor, and support beams.
After removing the insulation, we are able to treat the whole area for mold. Blasting all sides and spraying a non-toxic mold preventative afterwards. As you can see, it's back to looking like a new house under there again!
PROTECT YOUR HOME FROM MOLD!
Encapsulate your crawl space!
Whether you have mold in your crawl space now and want to protect it after the mold is removed, or you are being proactive and just want to protect your biggest investment from ever getting mold, an encapsulation is the only true way to do that. Encapsulating your crawl space seals it off from the outside elements. Whether that be water intrusion, humidity, or pests.
