Crawl Space Mold Remediation and Removal

Crawl spaces are especially susceptible to mold development. All that porous building material and a potentially poor building envelope design can greatly contribute to crawl space mold development. All too frequently, crawl spaces are built with undersized wall vents that cannot provide sufficient ventilation for moisture control.

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair’s mold removal professionals can provide mold testing and inspection which will identify if your crawl space has a mold problem and help us determine the best course of action to implement a remediation plan. Once your crawl space is clean and safe, we will make recommendations for preventing mold from returning in the future.

 
The longer you wait, the worse it gets and the more time serious problems like mold have time to develop. We have worked on many types of jobs including those with hardwood flooring and take pride utilizing industry standards for water loss removal. Below are a few simple steps to take in every situation.

What Causes Crawl Space Mold?

Crawl spaces can be the ideal environment for mold development because crawl spaces tend to experience quite a bit of moisture buildup. Unfortunately, crawl spaces are not always easily accessible for homeowners to conduct routine maintenance checks. Often times, homeowners are not even aware of mold development until the odors have permeated through to the main living space.

Here are some common problems that can leave your crawl space vulnerable to a mold contamination:

  • Elevated relative humidity – 55% or higher
  • Undersized wall vents
  • Insufficient air circulation
  • Flooding
  • Seepage
  • Leaks/backups
  • Dirt or sand floors- emit moisture/water vapors

Is crawl space mold making me sick?

Potentially. Mold exposure can have adverse health effects on you and your family. The severity of the symptoms will vary depending on the individual. Mold effects each individual differently. Reactions can range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory issues. It all depends on the individual, the species of mold, the length of exposure, and several other factors.

The nature of mold allows spores to travel virtually anywhere and colonize any surface. Even if the majority of the mold contamination is seemingly isolated to one area, mold spores can travel and permeated through to clean, unaffected areas of your home without notice. That is why it is so important to consult a mold professional if you detect signs of serious mold development.

foundation repair-bowing walls/waterproofing/window wells in Topeka, KS

I waited to submit my review until the work completed was put to the test. Overall-this has been an exceptional experience. The work crew at Lamunyon headed by Caleb were very professional, efficient, courteous and hard working. There was no water in my basement during the heavy rains and flooding! Regarding service, I did have one minor problem and after letting them know, was contacted by Dave that same evening and a workman came to my home to fix it the next day. I was a little shocked by how quickly they took care of the problem. Without hesitation--I highly recommend them.

Repairs to settling foundation and bowed wall in Topeka, KS

Lamunyon's David Hoes and his crew were very professional about explaining the procedure in the way they were going to correct our problem.David and his crew very polite, courtesy, nice to talk to and polite. Our house had settled about 3" and the doors sticking or not closing. We also had a bowed basement wall with a lot of cracks. David and his crew came in with there equipment closed the basement door and went right t work. At the end of each day David would explain what they done for the day and that they will be here the next day and started about 8. It was unbelievable at the amount of work that they had to do just raise the house enough to secure the house from settling again. By Friday they had lifted the house, install three square beams in front of the bowed wall, cleaned up the dust and dirt, wiped off the floor on their hands and knee. Now, the doors close shut with no sticking, the house does not make cracking noise, and we feel alot better about our house now. We want to give these guys a big thank you and that they deserve praise from their company.
