What is the difference between mold and mildew?
Mold and mildew are both fungi, but they have some key differences.
Mold is a general term for fungi that can grow in various colors, including black, green, white, and red. Mildew is often powdery and white, while mold can be fuzzy or slimy.
Why do mold and mildew grow in crawl spaces?
Mold is a living organism that requires food, water, and air to survive.
The floor joists in the crawlspace provide the wood for food, the humidity provides water, and the vents and cracks in the foundation provide air.
Mold grows best in dark spaces. So, a vented crawl space is perfect for mold.
Why is mold and mildew in a crawlspace an issue?
The air in a crawl space is shared with the air in the home. Studies show that 40-50% of the 1st floor air originates from the crawl space.
If your crawl space has mold, you’re breathing moldy air. Moldy air causes respiratory problems, allergies, and even neurological problems. Mold in a crawl space also eats away the wood that supports the home.
How does Dry Otter clean mold and mildew in a crawl space?
A negative air fan is installed in the crawl space, an air scrubber is placed inside the home, and the HVAC system is turned off.
Once completed, Dry Otter removes all raised fungus with an antimicrobial solution. This completes the process of crawl space mold remediation.
