Mold Remediation Case Studies: Mold Removal in Chrisney, IN
Homeowners in Chrisney, IN were purchasing this home. When they had an inspection done, the inspection report flagged the crawl space for having mold. With one of their children having terrible allergies, they knew that something had to be done before moving into this home. Their realtor told them about Healthy Spaces Fix It To List It program which offers priority scheduling and will only perform a full evaluation on what's listed on the inspection report.
Air travels upward. So if the air in the crawl space of a home has bacteria, mold spores, or other allergens, then that means that the air in the rest of the home also has bacteria, mold spores, and allergens.
Our process for mold removal in Chrisney, IN, is completed in 4 steps:
1.) Our crew first needed to remove all debris, such as old plastic and wood.
2.) Because mold spores can easily be spread, we needed to seal off the area to prevent any cross-contamination.
3.) Structural Cleaning - Some companies might only clean with disinfectants, addressing only surface soil load. The problem with this is it only cleans the surface soil load, leaving behind dirt, debris, pollen, mold. The product that we use cleans beyond the soil load and accomplishes total source removal leaving behind a contaminate free surface.
4.) Address Moisture - The last step is to address solutions to moisture issues in the crawl space. Crawl spaces generally need a vapor barrier with 100% coverage and overlapping seams. Controlling ground moisture release with a vapor barrier is an important part of the total solution in the crawl space.
With these solutions, Chrisney homeowners, will not have to worry about any allergens like mold once they move into their new forever home.

Even minor mold growth in the basement or crawl space can lead to musty odors and cause respiratory problems for people in the home.
Before the beginning of Step 3 by removing loose contaminants. This prevents the air movement from disturbing mold spores, making them airborne & decreasing contamination control.
Here you can see the during phase of scrubbing lose contaminants.
Here you can see that our product has been applied. It foams on contact with the affected area to provide visual identification of the problems & allows us to clean and restore the structural surfaces in the crawl space.
The product used penetrates the soil load and substrate to make the source removal process complete.
Here you can see that the foam is gone & we've applied a Protective Coating to create a permanent moisture & containment barrier that is also breathable & mold-resistant.
After we've installed the vapor barrier.
