Crawl Space Mold Remediation South Carolina
Crawl spaces in South Carolina are one of the most common hot-spots for mold development. Crawl spaces tend to be especially susceptible to mold growth due to its vulnerability to moisture problems. With its porous building materials and potentially poor building envelope design with insufficient ventilation, moisture buildup eventually becomes inevitable. Without the proper moisture control precautions, the excess moisture build up can leave your crawl space vulnerable to potential mold development.
When it comes to mold, early detection can save you from serious property damage and costly repairs. Mastertech of Mytle Beach can help.
Mastertech Environmental’s crawl space mold remediation experts in South Carolina can determine if your crawl space has a mold problem, identify what caused the problem and develop a safe and effective crawl space mold remediation solution. The key component of our mold remediation solution will be prevention. Following a successful mold remediation, the necessary preventive measures must be put into place in order to prevent mold re-growth in your crawl space.
What causes crawl space mold in South Carolina?
Where there is mold, there is an underlying moisture source that is sustaining its growth. Mold development in your crawl space is the direct result 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 moisture problems that can lead to crawl space mold:
- Elevated relative humidity – 55% or higher
- Undersized wall vents
- Insufficient air circulation
- Dirt or sand floors- emit moisture/water vapors
South Carolina Crawl Space Mold Inspections
A thorough crawl space mold inspection in South Carolina, conducted by a trained and certified mold inspector, will determine if you have mold, how bad it is, what caused it, how to safely remove it and how to prevent its regrowth.
Visual Assessment– Your Mastertech Inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of all areas of concerns to determine if there are any conditions that would cause and sustain mold growth. All mold inspections will be digitally documented, and you will have access to all the files for your records.
Moisture Mapping– During your crawl space mold inspection, your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your crawl space to diagnose the water source and understand how many areas have been affected.
Moisture Meters: Moisture meters will determine the moisture content of building materials in your crawl space. Moisture locked within porous building materials, like foundation walls, can easily be overlooked for extended periods of time.
Thermal Imaging: Temperature difference between wet and dry materials will allow your inspector to identify all areas affected by moisture. By isolating all the wet areas of the crawl space, your inspector will be able to gain a further understanding of the mold growth pattern.
Crawl Space Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold. If mold is confirmed in your crawl space, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.
Report of Findings– Your inspector will develop a clear, concise and easy to read report that outlines all his/her findings. If necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective crawl space mold remediation.
