What is Mold?

Mold is a general term for fungi that grow in various colors, including black, green, white, and red. Mildew is powdery and white, while mold is fuzzy or slimy.

Your crawl space is the perfect breeding ground for mold, especially if you live in a warm, wet climate like Winston-Salem. 

Studies show that 40-50% of the air in your home originates in your crawl space. 

If you’re worried about mold, our free home inspection will allow our technicians to evaluate the situation and offer workable solutions for a mold-free space.

Crawl Space Mold Causes

Water damage

Leaks, flooding, and condensation all lead to mold growth.

High humidity

Crawl spaces are close to the ground and naturally more humid. The dampness and lack of ventilation provide the perfect environment for mold growth.

Poor Ventilation

Lack of airflow allows moisture to build and sit in the space creating mold and stagnant air.

Organic Materials

Wood, paper, and insulation all feed and encourage mold growth.

Warm environment

Mold grows in temperatures between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, typical of most crawl spaces, especially in areas like Winston-Salem.

Lack of sunlight

Crawl spaces are naturally dark, with little to no sunlight. Sunlight naturally kills mold.

Other causes

Foundation cracks, plumbing leaks, condensation and soil moisture, porous crawl space walls, lack of  a vapor barrier, improper grading

Our Solutions to Remove Mold

Dry Otter Waterproofing has a multi-step process for crawl space mold removal.

We begin by installing a negative air fan in your crawl space, removing harmful particles from the air. 

Next, we put an air scrubber in your home with the HVAC until turned off to purify the air in your home. Finally, we remove all raised fungus with an antimicrobial solution to complete the mold removal process.

What Benefits of Crawl Space Mold Remediation?

Eliminating mold from your crawl space dramatically improves your health by eliminating many negative respiratory issues associated with mold. This is especially important if you suffer from asthma or allergies.

Mold removal also increases the value of your home and maintains its structural integrity.
