There are many reasons why a homeowner should have their crawlspace(s) inspected on an annual basis. Due to the change in climate and water-table rising, the environment within a crawlspace is changing drastically and not for the better. Moisture issues are a key concern ever since Hurricane Sandy hit.
In order to effectively address issues rising from moisture, we utilize specific chemical application solutions that not only target the root of the problem but also provide a residual effect that lasts even after we have long treated the area(s).
When water enters your crawlspace, whether it’s from a leaky pipe, flooding, or condensation due to contrast in air temperature it is imperative to have a professional inspect and advise the following solution(s) to properly address and eliminate the problem before it acerbates.
As your crawlspace specialists, not only are we licensed and well qualified to perform the task at hand, we can also back-up our level of expertise with the number of years of experience in the field. Because we know, that sometimes you have to address the gritty aspect involving a full clean-out of any debris, rotten insulation, and/or damaged vapor barrier in order to get the job done right.
When moisture is a problem in the crawlspace wood decay and mold can grow rapidly. Bora-Care with Mold-Care helps prevent and control wood decay fungi; Mold-Care is labeled for the control and prevention of mold and wood surface fungi.

When flooding occurs in the crawl space such as when there is a severe storm or leaking or busted pipes, there is normally debris left behind.
This debris can be a combination of several unhealthy contaminants like bacteria, viruses, and/or fecal matter that can cause havoc to the environment within.

Excessive debris, moisture, mold, fungi, decay, and animal waste amongst other things causes a strong penetrating odor that rises from the ground up and into your living area.
One of the most effective ways to tackle the odor is first to perform a thorough clean-out by removing all debris, including but limited to rotten floor insulation and damaged vapor barrier.
However, that is not enough. Bac-A-Zap is an effective deodorizing solution that tackles the bacteria-causing odor with an integrated powerful combination of bacteria and enzymes that consume the organic matter causing the odor.
