Many homes in our area can develop a mold problem—no matter how hard you clean! Often it’s the result of moisture buildup in your home’s crawlspace. When we’re asked to address moisture problems in a crawlspace, mold remediation is one of the steps we take to return your home to healthy comfort.
Mold Warning Signs
The signs of mold growth in your home may be difficult to decipher, but often begin with moisture problems in your Wake Forest, NC area home’s crawlspace. Some signs you may have a mold problem in your crawlspace include:
Damp or musty smell in certain rooms
Health symptoms that affect multiple family members and that lessen when away from the home including:
Runny or stuffed up nose
Crawlspace Mold Remediation Process
If the inspection indicates a moisture problem that requires black mold remediation, cleaning up mold is one aspect that we’ll address. The experts Energeyes may also offer services to improve drainage, crawlspace encapsulation, or sump pump/dehumidifier installation. Once the drainage and moisture sources are addressed, we can clean up your crawlspace area with our Serum 1000 system.
How Does Serum 1000 Work?
The Serum 1000 system uses a non-toxic 20% hydrogen peroxide solution to clean and remove mold from the crawlspace area. Before we start, we’ll seal off the crawl area. The mixture reacts with organic materials, including mold, to produce a foaming reaction that lifts the mold from the surface. The dried foam that remains is vacuumed up using a HEPA filter to ensure complete cleanup. Because it relies on hydrogen peroxide, there is no harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Only oxygen and water remain when the foam breaks down. Once your crawlspace is cleaned and vacuumed, we’ll often recommend encapsulation in tandem with moisture control measures to prevent future mold growth.
