Causes of Mold in the Crawl Space in Atlanta

Mold in Crawl Space

Crawl spaces beneath the first floor of your home, making them prone to mold growth. Molds thrive in dark, damp places and the soil in your underground crawl space is a perfect environment because your plumbing pipes will be located there. Water leaks in the crawl space are prime sources of mold growth.

Because most homeowners rarely spend time in their crawl space, mold often goes undetected until it begins creating a musty odor. That is a telltale sign. Fortunately, the mold remediation experts from Harris Waterproofing can check your crawl space in the Greater Atlanta, GA area and sample the air to determine if you have a mold problem in the works. Call us today at 770-282-8212 to learn more about our services and free estimates!

Factors That Encourage Mold Growth in Crawl Spaces

  • Water: Mold grows best in damp, wet conditions. High humidity, pipe leaks, and moisture seepage all contribute to mold growth in a crawl space.
  • Temperature: The ideal temperature for molds to grow is between 77° F and 86° F, which is common in a crawl space.
  • Oxygen: Molds need oxygen to survive, and plenty of oxygen is available in your crawl space.

Mold Protection Services Offered by Harris Waterproofing

Mold in Crawl Space

We offer a crawl space encapsulation system to prevent moisture from entering the crawl space, which prevents mold from growing and spreading. It is designed using moisture-resistant material that acts as a barrier between the crawl space and the outside world. With our encapsulation system installed, your crawl space will become cleaner and much healthier. All dirt and dust will be eliminated, and the ground will also be covered, thus molds will have nothing to feed on.

Protect your property from mold damage and crawl space hygiene. If your crawl space has water leakage problems, you can check out our crawl space waterproofing services. We also provide service for basement waterproofing, sump pump installation, odor control, moisture control, and more. In addition to these, we provide annual service for customers’ satisfaction.
