Keep your crawlspace clean and dry with our dehumidifying treatments.
Did you know that your crawlspace is an important contributor to the health of your household? For many of us in the Southeast area who have a dirt crawlspace, we might be exposing ourselves to hazardous health problems due to repeated and prolonged mold exposure. Mold can grow in many different places– all it needs is a little moisture and a food source. Because soil is always slightly damp from the water table below it, you can count on the soil in your crawlspace contributing to some kind of mold growth– major or minor. When you work with our experts here at Turners Underseal, you will find that our team can dry out your crawlspace, making your home a safe and comfortable place to live.
Mold in the crawlspace is often able to make its way through the floorboards, hidden openings along the baseboards, and the ventilation system in your home. This means that, even though your crawlspace might seem separated from the rest of the home, the air is constantly intermingling and mixing. This can cause a variety of different issues and a host of health problems, including immune suppression and respiratory problems.
Moldy crawlspace with stringy wet insulation.
We have a variety of treatment methods that we use to ensure your crawlspace is clean, dry and safe. One of the first things we do is check your space to determine measures that need to be taken. This means checking your wood and joists for moisture. We might also recommend removing insulation that has been contaminated. If there is moisture or signs of mold, we install specialized dehumidifiers and liners for your crawlspace to ensure that it is able to stay dry and keep mold growth at bay. Once the process is complete, you can go from a home that is damp and might have a musty odor to one that is clean, and dry.
