Before encapsulating or conditioning any crawl space, the area should be thoroughly inspected by trained and certified professionals for the presence of suspected mold growth. If mold is present, it is imperative for the health of the home and its occupants that all mold is remediated following industry standards by our trained and certified technicians before the crawl space is encapsulated.
After the completion of the mold remediation, it is also important that ensure the crawl space is sealed and protected to prevent any mold growth in the future. This is accomplished by installing a continuous, sealed vapor barrier which helps to separate moist outdoor air from coming in contact with floor joists, ductwork and plumbing in the crawl space. In addition, the installation of a dehumidifier ensures continuous air movement in the area as well as maintaining optimal humidity from 50% - 55%.
