Standing Water Leads To Crawl Space Mold and Mildew Growth

Remove Crawl Space Mold, Must, and Mildew

A common problem with crawl spaces is moisture intrusion and buildup. This leads to a common issue of must, mold, and mildew growth. Furthermore, this leads to the mold and mildew entering the home through air passing up through the crawl space into the living areas of the home.


A homeowner in Nashville, Tennessee gave Barrier Waterproofing Systems a call. They wanted to find the source of some uncomfortable symptoms their son was experiencing and suspected mold growth in their crawl space. Needless to say, they scheduled a FREE evaluation of their crawl space.


Some of our crawl space encapsulation and repair professionals arrived at the home and began to take a look around their crawl space. It wasn’t long before a significant amount of mold and mildew was discovered to be growing in their crawl space. The homeowner gave the green light for them to immediately remove crawl space mold, so the team got to work.


A few floor joists were repaired and reinforced during the removal due to weakness created by the mold eating away at the wood. Some batting insulation was replaced with hearty insulation board to even further remove crawl space mold infestation.


A complete encapsulation was performed following the repairs, and the good news was delivered to the homeowners. There would be no more water intrusion or mold growth in the crawl space for decades to come. Learning that there was an increase in their quality of life reassured the reason why BARRIER does the work we do to serve our communities.
