Hickory House Has a Mold Problem
The convenience of a crawlspace foundation can also result in unintended consequences. The before photo depicts mold growth on the floor joists of a home in Hickory. This pier-supported structure lacked sufficient ventilation to control the moisture level of the enclosed space. Mold can not only damage the underpinnings of a house but can also introduce unwholesome air into the interior. SERVPRO of Wilson County technicians can utilize ice blasting (pressurized CO2 pellets) as an abrasive action to remove the mold growth and show clean and fresh beams. The crawl space can be fogged with an antifungal agent to exterminate residual mold and spores and to reduce the risk of future growths. SERVPRO can monitor the RH in this space and offer a fixed dehumidifier or encapsulation to the homeowner to protect his investment. Need help. Call us.
