Forget the encapsulation and rid your home of crawlspace mold with dehumidification.
Your crawlspace is one of the most common places to find mold problems in your home. If you live in the Greenville, North Carolina area, chances are that you have a dirt floor for your crawlspace that naturally collects moisture that comes up from the ground. Between that moisture buildup, lack of sunlight, and humidity in the air, you have the perfect conditions for mold to flourish and spread into your foundation, your home, and even your family. Fortunately, here at Turners Underseal, we have highly effective methods for treating and preventing such crawlspace mold.
When it comes to crawlspace mold, most people think of crawlspace encapsulation that typically involves covering everything in the crawlspace with a tarp-like liner that is supposed to waterproof the space and trap the mold from spreading into your home. We tried the encapsulation and waterproofing methods for years; it doesn’t always work well. It’s more like finding a leak in the laundry room, covering everything with protective covers, and placing buckets under the leak to prevent water damage without really doing anything to repair the leak itself.
What encapsulation doesn’t account for is that humidity is a large cause of crawlspace mold. That’s why we prefer our dehumidification process. We’ll inspect the space for mold, clean or remove any contaminated materials, seal the vents, apply three-ply hydrophobic plastic liners in specific points in your crawlspace, and install ducted dehumidifiers that will effectively clean and treat your air for a better control of the humidity levels.
By controlling and reducing the humidity levels in your crawlspace and working to dry it out for better air quality, you can be rid of your crawlspace mold or any potential for such mold in no time. Forget the encapsulation methods and give us a call today to schedule an appointment for our dehumidification methods that will truly solve your crawlspace mold problems and prevent future mold.
