Over Two-Thirds of Homes Have Mold in Their Basements and Crawl Spaces
The mold from the crawl space can infect your living areas through small drafts and HVAC systems that blow spores throughout the interior of your Knightdale home. By leaving it untreated, this mold can cause serious health problems for you and your family.
Crawl Space Odors Caused By Mold & Moisture
According to The Environmental Protection Agency, 65% of the air your family breathes on the first floor of the home travels from the crawl space and basement. As your HVAC system runs, mold spores, dust mites, and other toxic pollutants are drawn into the interior of the home through the wall and floor penetration. The commonly called “Stack Effect” or “Chimney Effect” is to blame.
To simplify terms, the crawl space or basement is the origins of the unhealthy air inside of your living area. When you heat and cool the inside temperature of your home, you are also inadvertently pulling in the pollutants growing inside the crawl space or basement. The odor is often the best indicator of poor air, but many contaminants are odorless.
The Moldy Truth
The air we breath everywhere has mold spores and seeds of mold, and at acceptable levels, they do not pose a threat to most of us. When the heat and humidity start to rise in late spring in Knightdale, mold spores start to wake up from hibernation and then start to breed and feed. We cannot control the temperature and humidity fluctuation in nature, but we can control what happens inside our house!

Our licensed, bonded and insured process of safely removing mold can bring your home back to its healthy state by cleaning, drying out spaces, and removing soiled insulation.

Mold Remediation and Encapsulation Go Hand-in-Hand
If we were to remove all of the molds in the crawl space or basement and we did not seal off all of the sources of the heat and humidity, the mold issue starts back the minute we stop cleaning. To obtain a healthy crawl space, your space must be encapsulated and have a waterproof basement to control the environment inside that area. So much money is wasted on cleaning the mold when the real origin of the problem is ignored.
