What Moisture In Your Crawl Space Could Mean

Would you consider your crawl space to be the dark and “damp’ area underneath your home? In other words, have you ever noticed moisture in your crawl space? If so, it could be problematic for you and your home.

Moisture in your crawlspace can lead to multiple problems including wood rot and possible structural damage. Not only that, but it can also promote fungal growth leading to airborne contaminants that are absorbed into the living quarters above the crawl space. Airborne contaminants from the crawl space can ultimately lead to poor indoor air quality in your home.

So what happens when you’re faced with moisture and fungal growth?

For starters, Killingsworth can provide a mold remediation service using dry ice blasting, which involves spraying the solid form of carbon dioxide (dry ice) in a pressurized air stream to clean a particular surface. It is very similar to high-pressure washing and has the ability to rapidly and effectively clean mold from a surface without leaving a mess behind. It is environmentally safe and non-toxic, so rest assured the mold spores will be removed without excreting chemicals or contaminating the crawl space or living quarters above.

Once we have dry ice blasted the contaminated crawl space, we would recommend our highly beneficial crawl space encapsulation service to seal the deal.

If your crawl space is a problem area, call the mold professionals at Killingsworth and let us take a look. We’d love to help you eliminate problems regarding your crawl space and add value to your home at the same time.
