Mold is one of those things that tends to be over-stigmatized to an extent. There are a few types of mold that pose a greater threat to human and animal health, but it might not be as common as you are imagining. For sure it's a bad thing -- but it's important to stay calm and get professional assistance.

But if it turns out you do have a serious mold issue, it is very important to the health of not only the crawl space but to the rest of your home to get it removed and remediated so that it does not return.

White mold in the crawl space is very common in high humid areas. Wood rot fungus in the crawl space should not be ignored because every minute of everyday it eats more and more of your joists and subfloor.

Black mold can also be found in crawl spaces. Many believe mold in crawl spaces may be linked to health problems and should be addressed immediately.

Can Mold Make You Sick?

Many people ask us if mold in the crawl space can cause health problems. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to answer this since every person and there immune system is different so we leave that question for the medical professionals to answer.

We do know this, mold in the crawl space will eat and destroy your wood joists and subfloor. Mold never stops breaking down organic materials.

Crawl space mold removal is needed in order to make sure the mold is cleaned properly and prevented from returning. Mold needs moisture to grow and this moisture can come from high humidity or a leak but the more moisture mold in the crawl space receives the faster it will grow.

Make sure you take steps to remove the mold as well as prevent it from returning or you will have to perform crawl space mold removal again and again.

Mold Soda Blasting

Mold removal with soda blasting in the crawl space is one of the most effective ways to remove mold. Many mold removal companies try to shortcut a very important step in mold remediation and that is the actual REMOVAL of the mold.

Homeowners are being led to believe that simply applying a mold disinfectant without removing insulation or even controlling humidity is adequate to addressing mold in the crawl space. Mold should be removed, disinfected and prevented from returning in order to make sure your home is healthy for years to come.

Soda blasting mold in a crawl space is not an easy task but one we feel is necessary. If you have ever tried to sell a home with visible mold you know how difficult this process can be and the home inspector or buyer does not care that there is a piece of paper stating the visible mold is dead.

Wood Rot Fungus

Termites are a huge reason crawl space floor joists and sub-floors need to be repaired or even replaced. Mold and wood rot fungus is also a major contributor to sagging floors and other structural issues.

White wood rot or wood-decay fungus eats and digests moist wood, causing it to rot. There are different types of wood rot fungus like brown rot and soft rot fungus. Some species of wood-decay fungi will attack wood and release enzymes that cause it to decay faster.

Wood rot fungus is commonly found in crawl spaces with high humidity and plumbing leaks that may have gone unnoticed for months or even years.

One major mistake is to address the rotted wood before stopping the moisture problem or removing the fungus. Investing in solving the issue once is bad, twice is unnecessary.
