If your Cary home is like 2/3rds of homes in America, then you have highly elevated mold spore levels within your crawl space or basement!
The air in your Cary home is likely contaminated by mold spores that rise from the crawl space or basement. Through small cracks, drafts and HVAC systems, mold spores can blow through your entire living area. If neglected, this can become a health concern for you and your family.
Why Does My Cary Crawl Space Smell?
The Environment Protection Agency reports that 65% of your home’s first floor air is contaminated with air that travels from the crawl space or basement. Harmful pollutants like mold spores, dust mites and other harmful material can easily travel from the crawl space or basement to your home. When the HVAC system is working, air is pulled from your Cary crawl space or basement and drawn into the interior of your home through floor boards and walls. This is known as the “Stack Effect” or “Chimney Effect.”
Simply, the poor quality air that is in your home has originated from your Cary crawl space and basement. When you heat or cool your homes interior, you are unknowingly pulling air laden with mold and other pollutants from the crawl space to your living space. Often odor indicates a problem, but many times the bad air is odorless. That is why it helps to have the home tested by a certified mold remediation specialist.
The Moldy Truth
Did you know that mold spores, the seeds of mold, are present everywhere? These naturally occuring mold spores aren’t harmful to MOST people at acceptable levels. However, during late Spring when the heat and humidity begin to rise, these spores awake from a dorment Winter state and begin to breed and feed on organic material. This mold bloom can be excessive and can impact your breathing and health. Obviously, we cannont control the humidity and temperature fluctionations present in nature, but we can address these issues inside of our home!
CBTofNC Can Eliminate the Mold from Your Cary Crawl Space and Basement!
Although the mold in nature will never be removed, the good news is we CAN eliminate the mold from your Cary crawl space or basement. We follow a licensed, safe process to remove the harmful contaminants and bring your home back to the clean, healthy state you are looking for. Mold spores can be removed, the insulation replaced and your Cary crawl space will look just like it did during construction.
Why would you remove the mold and NOT repair the cause of the problem?
Removing the mold from your Cary crawl space or basement will not permanently fix the issue of poor air and moldy, damp conditions in your foundation space. Regardless of the extent that your crawl space is cleaned, the moment we complete the project, the humidity and heat will re-enter the area, contributing to mold growth. The only way to prevent this is with a Cary crawl space encapsulation or basement waterproofing. Your homes basement or crawl space must be completely sealed to control the environmental conditions inside that space. No sense in wasting money cleaning mold and ignoring the real problem.
