There are several reasons why mold can be become an issue in your home. Most often improper ventilation, blocked bathroom vents or crawl space flooding are the culprits of mold build up in your attic or crawl space. These conditions allow natural moisture generated in the home to become trapped and not escape the closed environment.
Mold build up in these environments can lead to several problems. Your health is the primary consideration when faced with mold issues because mold can cause serious respiratory system health issues.
Those itchy eyes, scratchy throats, and difficulty breathing issues may not be related to allergies like you may have thought. It could be an extreme sensitivity to the presence of mold at your home.
Mold can also impact the resale value of your home. Studies indicate an average property devaluation of 17 to 23 percent because of the presence of mold. Other issues such as the unavailability of insurance can make it difficult to sell any property that is infested with mold.
When you discover mold in your home it’s time to contact Crawl Pros for a mold remediation solution. Once our team is on the job, we will locate, test, and then carefully remove the mold and restore the area to its original condition.
Crawl Pros Mold Remediation Techniques are Safe and Efficient
Crawl Pros’ mold remediation process will always involve cleaning up existing mold while avoiding exposure to oneself as well as homeowners. We take steps to ensure you and your home are protected before our mold remediation experts begin work so as to ensure mold spores and other contaminates are not spread throughout your home.
We begin by isolating the contaminated area and other areas of the home. We cover doorways and any other openings with 6 mil polyethylene sheeting, then seal all the seams of the sheeting with tape to prevent contaminates from spreading throughout the home. We also use a negative air pressure fan and hose to draw the contaminated material from your attic or crawl space as we conduct the mold remediation process.
There is no room for error when performing mold remediation. A simple mold removal project can become a health compromising situation if not dealt with properly. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has established standards and guidelines that outline specific protocols for removing mold. These standards and guidelines are strictly followed by the mold remediation technicians at Crawl Pros.
At Crawl Pros we have chosen to use the soda blasting technique for mold removal. Using baking soda we “sand blast” the moldy areas with high pressure air and baking soda. We use baking soda because it is safe, non-toxic and great alternative to the harsh chemicals some companies use to remove mold.
After the mold has been removed we spray on an anti-microbial natural water base solution. The solution ensures mold does not grow back on the surface.
You can rest assured that when you contract with Crawl Pros to remediate your mold problem we will do all that is required to return your home to a normal environment.
We are so sure of our service that we back our mold remediation services with a ten year warranty that covers labor and the cost of material if the mold ever returns.
