Crawl Space Mold Removal Service

Crawl space, being one of the most ignored places in a house or building, often becomes the best breeding ground for molds. The most significant factor in mold growth is humidity, also known as moisture. Molds require moisture, oxygen, a wooden or wood-made surface, and a temperature range of 40 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit to grow. Moisture is the most important of these, as mold cannot grow without it, even if the other three components are present.

The best approach regarding such a situation is to prevent mold from infesting in the first place however in case mold has already grown in your crawl space you can always take professional help to get rid of mold.

Mycotoxins are harmful compounds produced by mold. Depending on the amount consumed, the length of exposure, and the age and condition of the individual, they might cause sickness and even death. Symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea, as well as severe liver illness, are examples of acute toxicity. As we know around 40% of indoor air in the first floor above the crawl space comes from the crawl space, having mold down there can cause physical illness and put your and other occupants' health in danger.

Furthermore, mold completely destroys the surface it grows on along with dampening it. Therefore, if mold has infested your crawl space you need to take action as soon as possible otherwise it will consume the surface and weaken the structural integrity of the establishment as well as ruin the air quality with toxic chemicals and foul odor.
