We tend to forget that there can be problems with your home that aren’t just crawling around. Mold and high wood moisture can create many issues with the environment in your home. Because we at Pro Core care about your home environment outside of how many bugs we can kill, we have many different options in moisture control depending on how much of an issue exists.
The easiest fix for mild moisture issues found in the wood would be to install a moisture barrier. This plastic sheeting will help control the evaporation effect of water on the ground in your crawlspace.
Ventilation would be another approach. Most houses have obstructed ventilation in the crawlspace. Ensuring that there is proper ventilation will help control moisture in the air..temp control vents and power vents are available for installation.
Dehumidifiers and encapsulations are the ultimate cure for major moisture problems in a crawlspace. If moisture can be controlled without this then we would recommend this in only the direst of situations.
Mold remediation is a service that we can also offer. Depending on the type of mold and the activeness (higher moisture content in the wood than 20%) we would approach the control and clean up of this mold accordingly.
