Crawl Space Mold Remediation Near Portland, Vancouver, Salem, Eugene, and Roseburg
When you have mold in your crawl space, you are in danger of letting the spores spread throughout your home. Much of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from the crawl space. And the wet, dark environment down there provides a prime breeding ground for mold.
At Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver, we can remove the mold growing in your crawl space with remediation treatments. By using effective insulation, waterproofing, encapsulation, & ventilation measures, we can also dry the moisture that enters your crawl space -- from rain, plumbing leaks or drain pan overflows by your HVAC system -- and prevent the growth of mold.
These crawl space improvements can significantly reduce your heating and cooling costs, as well as boost your indoor air quality while mitigating potential health hazards.
Dangers of Mold in Your Crawl Space
When mold is found in your crawl space, the main concerns include tainted indoor air and the possibility of structural damages from wood rot. Mold weakens construction materials made from organic matter like wooden support beams. By adding a moisture barrier that is non-organic, like rigid foam insulation, you can stop moisture in its tracks in your crawl space.
Using dehumidification measures will dry those areas and prevent you from having to deal with the primary dangers that result from mold in your crawl space:
- Structural Damage
- Musty Odor
- Poor Indoor Air Quality
- Health Hazards for Humans
- Wood Rot
