Most homes in Chapin, South Carolina have crawl spaces as opposed to basements, largely because this area has a higher water table putting it at an increased risk of flooding. Even though you don’t have a basement to flood, you could still have this situation with your home’s crawl space. If you notice bad odors, excessive moisture and mold, or water under your home, this is cause for concern.
The dangers involved can be devastating, including serious damage to the foundation of your home. One of the more immediate hazards is mold. Mold can adversely affect the health of you, your family members, and even your pets. It can aggravate ongoing respiratory issues, such as allergies, or cause a host of illnesses in the case of toxic black mold. Not all species of mold are as hazardous, but none of them does good things for your home’s indoor air quality, which may result in long-term health consequences.
Since we live in such a humid environment, there is a higher likelihood of a mold in crawl space issue. What’s worse, if there is mold under your home, there is a higher likelihood that there is mold in the living space as well, although it may be in the walls where you don’t see it.
Give us a call at AdvantaClean of the Midlands to inspect your crawl space today. If we do find mold in your crawl space, the best solution for correcting the problem is to resolve the moisture issue, remove the mold, and encapsulate the crawl space, so that the mold is less likely to return. We can also perform follow-up inspections to make sure that all is well.
There are many advantages to encapsulating the crawl space, including moisture control, added insulation, improved efficiency of air conditioning and heating of the home, and protection against pests entering the home or damaging exposed wiring and flooring. The important first step is to address the mold in crawl space issue, but if nothing else is done to improve the environment of the crawl space, that will become a routine process to complete regularly. Let us help you not only remove the mold, but also prevent it from returning by encapsulating that space.
If you suspect a mold in crawl space situation or mold in other areas of your home, call us today. We’ll conduct mold testing to measure the amount of mold on your property and identify what type is present and what risk it presents. It is important to know the mold species because the methods of removal can vary. Some of the things you should watch for are physical symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, runny nose, eye irritation, and other cold symptoms. Other signs include baseboards separating from the wall or floor, white patches under the carpets or in other areas, and musty odors. Don’t suffer with any of these problems when our mold services and crawl space encapsulation method can put an end to your problem. Call today to learn more.
