J. Smith from Decatur, AL, contacted us regarding persistent moisture problems in his crawl space, an issue that required immediate attention to prevent further complications.
Our expert crew tackled this challenge methodically:
Crawl Space Cleaning: The team commenced by diligently removing all insulation and any trash and debris from the crawl space. This thorough clean-up was a crucial first step in addressing the moisture issue.
Mold Remediation: Our crew conducted a mold remediation process following the clean-up. This involved carefully removing all existing mold and fungus from the wood joists in the crawl space, ensuring a clean and healthy environment.
20 Mil Encapsulation Installation: After preparing the area, the crew installed a robust 20 mil encapsulation. Encapsulation is a highly effective technique that protects the crawl space from external conditions. This strategy is pivotal in regulating the humidity and moisture levels within the space.
Dehumidifier Integration: We installed a dehumidifier within the crawl space to reinforce the encapsulation. The dehumidifier plays a vital role in maintaining optimal humidity levels, thereby preventing the recurrence of mold and fungus.
Air Quality Enhancement: The combination of encapsulation and dehumidification not only safeguards the crawl space but also contributes significantly to improving the air quality within the home. This approach is essential for a healthy living environment, free from mold and moisture-related concerns.
