Our system is considerably more effective for preventing crawlspace mold than traditional crawlspace encapsulation methods.
A vast number of homes in the southeast have crawlspace mold to some degree. If the mold colony isn’t stopped from spreading, it can affect the structural integrity of your home, cause indoor air quality issues, and potentially affect the health of your family. While not all mold species are considered dangerously toxic, those with respiratory conditions and compromised immune systems can find their health issues worsened by any species of crawlspace mold.
At Turners Underseal, we have worked in the crawlspace encapsulation industry for years, so we know that method is not particularly effective for preventing crawlspace mold. We use an improved method to create a dry environment in which mold cannot survive. Our multi-point, dry-air distribution system provides a dehumidifying effect that crawlspace encapsulation does not accomplish.

You may have heard of some crawlspace methods as waterproofing for the crawlspace. That isn’t exactly accurate because although they put a barrier between the dirt and the structure, they don’t deal with the moisture that naturally comes into the space. The reality is that no crawlspace is technically ever waterproof. Our system controls moisture levels to the point that crawlspace mold becomes unlikely, but we don’t claim that it waterproofs your home’s crawlspace. We feel that is false advertising and we prefer to conduct our business with honesty and integrity.
The bottom line is that our process is effective for preventing crawlspace mold and if that is the objective you have in mind, we recommend giving us a call to learn more. We will be happy to address your questions so you can decide if our system is the right option for you. Call today to schedule a consultation.
