Our team can take care of the mold in your crawlspace.
The crawlspace of a home is situated below the ground level, offering access to some of the various components and systems that keep the space comfortable and functional. A crawlspace may provide access to the HVAC ducts, electrical wiring, and plumbing components, which means it will typically only be accessed when you’re dealing with an issue with one of these systems or parts. Since it’s rarely disturbed and sits beneath the ground, it’s an area where mold growth can be a serious problem. Many property owners deal with mold in the crawlspace, which can create a safety hazard for those in the home.
If you have a leak or flood, the moisture will travel downward due to gravity, which means excess moisture often ends up in the crawlspace. As a result, it’s a place where mold may grow and spread rapidly, and the spores can travel through the air, impacting the indoor air quality and potentially causing allergic symptoms.
