Large amount of mold is reason to prevent craw space mold

Best Ways To Prevent Crawl Space Mold

A homeowner in Nashville, Tennessee called into our crawl space encapsulation and repair professionals here at BARRIER. They had a concern regarding the potential for a mold growth outbreak in their crawl space. They were aware of the conditions it took for mold to grow, and what conditions mold grew best in. Following this information, it was identified that their home was a prime target. They also knew that once it was cleaned, they would have to work to prevent crawl space mold from returning.

After scheduling a FREE evaluation, our team came out to their home to take a look and identify if a mold infestation had already begun. The homeowners explained they had never had an encapsulation or evaluation done of their crawl space before.

Once our team took a look, it was clear right away that the humidity accumulation was high. There was a definite amount of moisture in the crawl space. Fortunately enough, no mold had begun to grow. It was great timing on their part to call in professionals that could install a vapor barrier and prevent moisture from building up in their crawl space.

The encapsulation was completed and the crawl space was ruled out to be in a rather good condition. Our team at BARRIER gave the homeowners a little education on how to prevent crawl space mold growth in the future. This process included checking for leaks in the foundation of the home and ensuring that all gutters and downspouts directed water away.
