Mold can grow behind the walls in crawl spaces and cause significant damage.
Musty odors are typically the first sign of a moisture problem in the crawl space. While mold is common in most crawl spaces, foundation leaks, flooding, and plumbing leaks can all put you at greater risk of a crawl space mold problem.

When water enters your crawl space, regardless of how it got in, there's a potential for mold to grow. If your crawl space is finished, any organic materials like wood framing, sheetrock, insulation, and carpeting create a breeding ground for mold.
Because air from the crawl space often escapes into the upper living spaces of the home, crawl space mold can contribute to health problems like respiratory illnesses and worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. The only way to keep mold issues in the crawl space under control is to keep moisture levels low and prevent water intrusion with proper waterproofing and ventilation.
When you contact us for crawl space mold cleanup and remediation, our trained and certified technicians will conduct a thorough inspection to determine the source of the water or moisture issues in your crawl space. We then remove all mold-damaged materials, dry out the crawl space, and thoroughly clean all surfaces. Once the crawl space has been dried and cleaned, it is recommended that a waterproofing system be installed - this may include a french drain, a sump pump, and a dehumidifier. These solutions will help prevent future mold issues in your crawl space.
