B. Thomas reached out to our office with concerns about potential mold and fungus growth in her crawl space, which was evidenced by a pervasive musty odor permeating her home.
Responding to her concerns, our specialist, Tyler Butcher, thoroughly inspected the crawl space. During the evaluation, he discovered significant fungal growth on the wood joists, confirming the customer’s suspicions and necessitating prompt intervention.
Our experienced crew initiated the remediation process by removing the insulation from the crawl space. Given the propensity for insulation to retain moisture, it had become the perfect environment for mold and fungal growth.
The team developed a specialized mold treatment protocol following the insulation removal to remove mold and fungus on the wood joists. This step was crucial in halting the spread of these organisms and preventing further damage.
The next phase involved installing a 10 mil moisture barrier, a crucial component in moisture control and preventing future mold outbreaks. This barrier effectively manages the humidity levels within the crawl space, thus safeguarding the area against moisture-related complications.
B. Thomas has also planned for a comprehensive crawl space encapsulation. This decision will further enhance the protection of her home against moisture, mold, and structural issues.
