How Mold Affects Tallassee Crawlspaces-And How Master Services Treats It

Tuesday, December 31st, 2019 by Kristen Owenby


Is there a musty odor lingering inside your home? Are your allergies acting up? Are you prone to headaches and exhaustion despite resting and drinking plenty of fluids?
 
The culprit could be mold, which thrives in moist environments. Most molds grow in a setting with 70% relative humidity. Control the moisture and humidity of your crawlspace and you’ll save money, preserve your home, and protect your health.
 
Mold is not a minor problem, and it has far-reaching consequences if left unchecked. It eats away at load-bearing girders and floor joists, drywall, furniture, cardboard, and more. If mold is allowed to proliferate, it can cause serious health problems, like allergies, fatigue, watery eyes, and asthma. 
 
Master Services transforms damp, moldy crawlspaces into energy-efficient, dry spaces. First, our team will install airtight doors and vent covers. The EverLast™ Crawl Space Door seals the area to keep out cold, humidity, and moisture. Next, we’ll remove any standing water sources by installing a crawl space drain and a sump pump system. If we see any signs of damage, our team will install support jacks to stabilize the structure and reduce sagging to upstairs areas.
 
Moisture easily passes through floors and porous walls, so the CleanSpace® Crawl Space Vapor Barrier is essential to prevent water vapor and humidity from wreaking havoc on your crawl space. CleanSpace® Drainage Matting beneath the crawl space liner will direct water to the drainage system and sump pump system.
 
Finally, our team will install a dehumidifier system to remove particles from the air and keep the surrounding area dry.
