At Delta Waterproofing, we know there are often many sources of moisture in a crawlspace, which means that mold in the crawlspace can happen quite easily. Additionally, any water problem can take a long time to dry out because crawlspaces often get little sunlight or poor ventilation, making them damp and humid. High humidity plus cooler temperatures in the crawlspace can produce a lot of condensation, creating the ideal environment for mold to grow, and therefore create the need for crawlspace mold removal. Some of the more common causes of basement mold are the result a flood, cracks in the foundation allowing moisture in, sewer backups and having a lot of humidity.
One of the easiest ways to tell if you have mold in your crawlspace is by the smell. As air circulation is usually lesser in a crawlspace, odors become more easily noticeable. If you are concerned that there is mold in your crawlspace it’s best to hire a professional mold removal service to deal with the mold, especially if there is a large amount of it. This is even more important in the case of dangerous molds like toxic black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum) which should be dealt with only by a professional with the right equipment.
