High levels of mold spores can be found in 2 out of 3 homes across America
High levels of mold and moisture in your Chapel Hill home means that there is a high chance of health risks for you and your family. Mold spores can travel through HVAC systems and small cracks, potentially exposing your entire home to the hazards of mold.
What is the Smell Coming From My Basement?
According to an Environmental Protection Agency report, up to 65% of the air on the first floor of your home comes up through your basement or crawl space. When your HVAC system circulates air around your home, these mold spores, dust mites and other health hazards can be introduced into the living space of your home. This is commonly referred to as the “Stack Effect” or “Chimney Effect”.
What this all boils down to is that most of the harmful air in your home comes from your basement. Your home would be a 65% healthier place to enjoy for you and your family if the crawl space or basement of your Chapel Hill home was sealed and disinfected of mold and mold spores. Often these pollutants give off odors to let you know something is wrong, however its is common for crawl spaces to be free of odor and still need remediation. This is when a professional is needed to assess the extent of the mold presence in your home.
The Moldy Truth
Mold spores, or seeds of mold, are in the air everywhere. At lower levels, they pose no threat or harm to MOST of us. When the heat and humidity begin to rise in late spring, mold spores wake up from their inert, winter state and begin to feed and begin to multiply. We cannot control the temperature and humidity fluctuations in nature, but we can control what happens inside our house!

The good news…the mold can be removed from your home! Through our licensed, safe process, we will remove the mold in your crawl space or basement to restore the health of both your home and protect the health of those who live in it. Mold spores can be removed, insulation replaced and the crawl space will look like it did during the original construction.
It makes no sense to remove mold, if you don’t repair the conditions that caused the mold to grow!
If all the mold and mold spores in your crawl space are removed but the space is not sealed, eliminating the heat and humidity which caused the mold in the first place, the problem has not truly been solved. Your basement or crawl space must be sealed in order to control the climate inside of the area. This process is called encapsulation. Homeowners waste money every year by ignoring the source of the problem.
