Mold Remediation Case Studies: Mold Removal in Greenville, KY
This Greenville, KY homeowner had noticed a musty smell throughout her home. After looking in her crawl space, she saw that there was a water leak that had caused an infestation of mold throughout. With a major concern for her health, she gave Healthy Spaces a call to help with her crawl space repair.
After a free, no-obligation estimate, our Design Specialist, Donnie Stuteville, arrived at the Greenville home to evaluate her mold and crawl space problems. He concluded that we would need to first remove all the old 6mil vapor barrier and replace it with a new vapor barrier.
Because there was so much mold infestation throughout the crawl space, we created a containment area in the crawl space, then set up the air scrubber. The air scrubber is used to remove any loose contaminants from the surface prior to cleaning. This prevents the air movement from disturbing mold spores, making them airborne and decreasing contamination control. The last step to eliminate mold completely is by applying a product that penetrates the soil load and substrate to make the source removal complete.
Once the job was finished, this Greenville, KY homeowner enjoyed her home without worrying about her health being affected and Healthy Spaces was happy to help!

Mold eats organic materials. That means that any organic material at all. Dust, fabric, drywall, wallpaper, glue, paint, wood, or anything else is enough to keep it growing.
Mold can live in the cold. As long as the temperature is above 40 °F, mold can grow and spread.
If not treated, mold can lead to serious structural damage to your home.
