Durham, NC Mold Testing And Remediation
Our licensed and experienced mold inspectors will visit your home or business to perform a mold inspection of any visible mold growth and to evaluate other areas that may have mold present. We will be able to evaluate the situation and give advice on the best course to take for your health and safety.
Professionally identifying mold growth in your air, behind walls, or after a water leak is important. Some molds are hazardous to health, while others are just unpleasant. We test for mold and identify mold species, so we can provide advice and institute an effective remediation solution.
Since mold is a living organism, it is important to utilize an effective remediation process. A mold infestation needs proven techniques to completely stop growth and remove all mold spores. Our experienced technicians know how to stop mold growth in its tracks and provide effective removal and mold remediation.
Crawl spaces are an essential element of your house and help provide ready access to important utility lines. However they can become a place where mold thrives and gets out of control. Our encapsulation will remove mold, dehumidify the area and prevent mold growth in the future.
Why is crawlspace encapsulation recommended?
Crawl space encapsulation, or sealing, is a treatment to transform a damp, dirty, & moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space that is inhospitable to mold growth. Many homes built on a crawl space foundation suffer from moisture problems, especially those in North Carolina. Crawl space problems can cause issues upstairs too.
Common signs in the upstairs living area are musty odors, buckled hardwood floors, high humidity, condensation and rot around floor registers, cold floors, and high heating and cooling costs.
Inside the crawl space, you may notice mold or moisture damage, condensation or “sweating” on air conditioner ductwork or equipment, condensation on pipes, soggy insulation, hanging or fallen insulation, insect or pest infestations, rotted wooden framing, or water on the dirt or concrete floor.
