Once mold gets into your home, it becomes very difficult to remove. Because of this, the best strategy for dealing with mold is to prevent it from getting in in the first place. One of the areas where mold is most likely to develop is the crawlspace, due to the higher humidity and moisture from the soil. Fortunately, our team at Turners Underseal has effective ways to mitigate these problems and reduce the risk of mold. If you are looking for a reliable way to prevent crawlspace mold, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Fix Drainage Issues- One step you can take to prevent crawlspace mold is to check your gutters and downspouts to make sure that they are directing water well away from your home. In many cases, water from the gutters seeps into the crawlspace and contributes to mold growth.
- Check for Leaks- Similarly, you can also check for any leaks from your plumbing or HVAC system that may be getting excess moisture into your crawlspace. If you find any, you should get them taken care of as soon as possible.
- Use Our Methods- A third way to prevent crawlspace mold is to use our method of dehumidifying the area. We use specialized ducted dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and clean it of any other contaminants. By removing the humidity from the air in your crawlspace, we create unfavorable conditions for mold growth, which keeps your crawlspace and the rest of your home safe from infestation.
