You may be familiar with the emergency services we provide at AdvantaClean of Houston West, such as mold removal.

We welcome both residential and commercial clients; we can work in homes, apartments, stores, restaurants, office buildings, and more. With our 24/7 availability, you can easily call us to schedule an appointment.
TREATING MOISTURE IN ATTICS
Attics are known for having poor ventilation and a lot of clutter. Combine this with the moisture that rises from the showers and dryers, and you have an ideal environment for mold and mildew. We treat moisture in attics by installing fans where necessary and ventilation where appropriate.
Moisture control can backfire if you add too many ventilation holes, however. That's why you'll want our professional team for this job.
CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION
This is the most important measure we offer when it comes to moisture control. It's essential to keep the crawl space free of mold because the air quality here affects the air quality throughout your property.
Encapsulation involves a thick plastic membrane called a vapor barrier. We'll lay a tightly fitting barrier across the walls and dirt floor; this will prevent vapor drive in the soil and keep water from condensing on your surfaces (our team will install a drainage system for any moisture that develops behind the barrier).
If your property contains foundation vents, these may not be providing sufficient moisture control; in fact, in humid climates like ours, they can have an opposite effect. Our vapor barrier will cover these vents up so as to reduce humidity.
Sometimes, the only thing you need to keep humidity down in the basement is to run a dehumidifier. This will be a continual cost, though, which is why you might want to consider our other options for moisture control.
The most effective is waterproofing. You may be familiar with the various waterproofing paints out there, but moisture will eventually get under the paint and cause it to peel. We use concrete sealants, which will harden over your walls and never allow water to penetrate them - thus, preventing mold and mildew growth. You'll be able to paint over the coating.
