Mold in the Crawl Space

Mold in a crawlspace is not much different than mold in the basement or attic. The difference is height. A crawl space can be located above or below your house. Basement crawlspaces and basements share the same causes of mold, just like attic crawlspaces and attics.

One of our projects today was mold on the wood in the ceiling of the crawlspace, caused from a radiator that busted and leaked down, soaking the carpet and seeping through the floor. It was a fairly simple and common type job we regularly experience, not always stemming from a radiator water/moisture source, but, the same scope and protocol.

Our method on how to remove mold from crawlspace:
Naturally, we set up a containment, disinfected the area by fogging non-toxic disinfectant chemicals to lower the air borne contaminants, applied our mold stain removal formula, and treated the wood with our safe mold killing and future prevention treatment, and finally gassed out the entire space with high levels of ozone to shock and kill the mold, after thoroughly HEPA vacuuming.

Can you DIY a mold project like this:
We highly recommend not trying to if you don’t know what you’re doing. Mold can make you sick and spread fast! How fast? 1 spore to 100,000 in 12 hours mold tests have shown. We use proper equipment, protective clothing from head to toe, and full face masks with gas respirator cartridges, along with experience.

Whether you have mold in a basement or attic crawl space, our trained mold experts can assist you.

Proper Attic Ventilation

Attics must be vented in such a way to let air come in at the bottom, and out as close to the top as possible. gable end vents are preferred by those who don’t want to put holes in their roof or damage their shingles, but aren’t as good as having the proper amount of hood vents, Ridge vents are more the best way to go when installed properly because they provide the most even exhaust distrubution.
