Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Moldy Crawl Space in Owensboro, KY
A homeowner in Owensboro, KY reached out about a concern about mold growing in the crawl space. When mold spores find the right combination of temperature, food source, and moisture, they will start to grow. When mold grows, it reproduces more airborne seeds to grow more mold. Just like a dandelion seed, mold seeds are like tiny parachutes that float through the air. Ending the mold spore cycle will protect the homeowner in the future.
To give the homeowner a sense of security, mold remediation was performed throughout the crawl space. To protect the crawl space from any outside air leaks or water, CleanSpace was laid throughout the ground and sides of the crawl space. A SaniDry Sedona was hooked up to create a dry air flow since mold can thrive in 70% to 90% humidity. Once the mold is controlled and prevented, the homeowner will have peace of mind knowing that their health is not at risk.
