Humidity levels in your crawlspace can affect the rest of your home
Having unconditioned air below your living spaces makes the whole house harder to heat and cool as well as provide the perfect damp setting for mold spores to breed.
In the past, we were told that crawlspaces needed to be ventilated. Now, however, we are learning that crawlspaces need to be treated almost as if they were living spaces. In other words, areas that are in contact with your living space affect your living space. So if you have a crawlspace, what solution is available?
Mold-B-Gone Remediation, LLC can help you dry out the dampest crawlspaces and turn them into drier, healthier foundations for your home that aren’t breeding grounds for mold spores.
Turning crawlspaces into dry spaces
Our Dry-space technique combines the following:
- A thorough cleaning of the space, including mold remediation
- Installation of a wall-to-wall guide, durable, 14 mil vapor barrier
- Attachment of the vapor barrier over ground and up sidewalls to 6 inches below floor joists.
The result is an energy efficient, healthy home. Mold-B-Gone Remediation, LLC’s dry space methods described above not only helps mold-proof your home, but the combination of these methods will make it more energy efficient and comfortable.
