Crawl Space Mold Remediation in Chesterton, Merrillville, Valparaiso, and Northwest Region

Save your Home by removing the mold from your Crawl Space!

DSCN0200Mold prefers to grow in dark, wet crawlspaces. Mold needs three basic things to grow: moisture, organic material (wood), and the ideal temperature range. Of these factors, the only one we can control is the moisture levels. In a damp environment, crawl space mold can flourish which will allow it to spread throughout your home. A damp crawl space is bad news when it comes to maintaining healthy indoor air quality.

Crawl Space Mold Removal

Crawlspace mold remediation can be done in a few simple steps. First, the crawlspace is placed under negative air pressure to avoid cross contamination to the other areas of the home. Next,  all affected areas are HEPA vacuumed and professionally cleaned to make sure the mold is completely removed.

In most cases, we clean all of the structural wood components, not just affected areas, because mold may be starting to grow and may not be visible yet. Give us a call today at 219-841-5911 to request an inspection and estimate from one of our mold remediation experts.

Once mold is professionally removed, moisture control methods such as a drainage system and or encapsulation system is necessary to prevent the mold from growing again.

WARNING: There are no fogging or spraying methods available that are effective replacements for professional remediation of mold in crawl spaces. Mold must be physically removed from the surface to be considered remediated.
