Crawlspace Mold Removal

A crawlspace is considered as the area in the home between the ground level and the first floor. Ideally it was created with several advantages in mind such as the ease of access to the home’s plumbing and electrical. It derived the name crawlspace as it is usually large enough to crawl around at 1- 4 feet in height. Even though the height of this area may make it difficult to work Eradicators mold team is more than capable in assisting.

Unfortunately, this part of the home is not off limits to abnormal mold activity. Its located directly above the ground which makes the area susceptible to flooding and lack of sunlight. There is also the possibility of water evaporation if there is no vaper barrier to mitigate or prevent condensation. Like other areas of the home, it’s constructed with items that may become mold affected such as drywall, insulation, wooden beams and so on.

Crawlspace and Excess Humidity

Additionally, the crawlspace may become affected as excess humidity and/or water intrusion from cinderblock walls that are not waterproofed may be a source. Even though cinderblock is considered to be the least porous of building materials (similar to drywall, molding and other items that can become mold affected) it also has the ability for air and water to pass through it. Waterproofing of cinderblock walls are necessary to do externally as well as internally to prevent efflorescence, water intrusion, and excess humidity.

Vapor Barrier Installation

Eradicator can also assist by installing a vapor barrier within your crawlspace. Not only will a vapor barrier prevent excessive moisture but this will be helpful to reduce damage to your property. In addition, a vapor barrier is helpful in preventing insects and pests (e.g. termites, centipedes, cockroaches, and pill bugs) that normally thrive in wet and damp environments. With the humidity being controlled the potential for abnormal mold activity that may affect the health and value of your home is greatly reduced.
