Mold Treatment & Prevention
Starts with Identification Implementation & Long-term Prevention
Where there is moisture present in the crawlspace, mold growth, organic decay, and wood rot will emerge. Left untreated, structural damage in the form of wood decay and wood rot can be a homeowner's worst nightmare. The mere presence of mold impacts a home's value and may lead to health problems, especially for those with existing respiratory conditions.
Molds Destroy Building Materials
The key to mold growth is moisture. Mold develops in an environment where high levels of moisture and humidity are present, creating a conducive environment for mold to thrive.
Molds are fungi that occur naturally in the environment. There are many forms of fungal species that exist ranging in color and toxicity. Exposure to mold can cause an allergic reaction for sensitive people.
When conditions are favorable, mold grows by digesting cellulose, a compound found in wood, insulation, and other building materials.
