Prevent the damaging effects of mold in your home
Mold may develop on practically any surface as long as there is moisture, oxygen, and an organic source. Leading to rot and musty, offensive odors. Worst of all, because your crawlspace provides nearly 50% of the air in your home, dampness and mold under your home can have a significant impact on the air quality in your home.

Mold remediation is the process of removing, cleaning, and sanitizing mold-infested places, such as those found within a home. The mold remediation process is essential to eradicate existing mold, while also avoiding new mold growth.
The Mold Remediation Process
- Mold contaminated areas are isolated, creating a barrier between the contaminated section and the rest of the house.
- Airborne spores are controlled by misting the contaminated areas and HEPA vacuuming any moldy surfaces to reduce the microbial load in the environment.
- All wet and mold-contaminated materials are applied with a powerful anti fungal and disinfectant treatment or, if unsalvageable, discarded to lower the risk of mold spores persisting.
- Unmovable building elements are cleaned with our anti fungal and disinfectant treatment. This treatment penetrates the surface, kills the mold, and leaves the material clean and nearly new-looking.
