Crawl Space Mold growth Prevention

Crawl Space Microbial Growth Services in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Crawl spaces is a breeding ground for mold growth. Mold needs three things to survive – moisture, high humidity levels, and organic materials to feed off of. Mold not only looks bad, but can make your entire home smell musty. Also, what’s worse is that it can lead to a variety of health problems for all members of your family, especially children and elderly individuals who have weaker immune systems. Mold has been known to trigger the following:

As you can see, these are some fairly concerning medical problems. But you don’t have to deal with them! Let Foundation Specialist come out today for a consultation. We can come to your home and do mold testing when you contact us. The tests will help us determine how many mold spores are floating around in your home’s air. A dangerous amount will suggest a problem, and we will investigate your basement or crawl space environment to determine where and why the mold is growing.


Crawl Space Waterproofing

To prevent mold from growing in the crawl space, we waterproof the area using several components.

  • Vapor barriers – To properly waterproof the crawl space area, we install vapor barriers that are naturally resistant to mold and mildew growth.
  • Sump pump – For water drainage, we install reliable sump pumps that work efficiently at pumping water out of the crawl space area.
  • Dehumidifier – Installing a dehumidifier in the crawl space will give you greater control over the humidity. Reducing humidity levels is one of the ways to prevent mold from being able to spread.
