Problem: Mold can pose both structural problems and health concerns if left in a home. This home had experienced consistent moisture issues in the crawlspace. Our inspection revealed a patch work of many vapor barriers that did not adequately cover the crawlspace floor. Mold on the floor beams and insulation were also observed during the inspection. Lastly, moisture seepage was observed coming through the concrete block walls.
Solution: AdvantaClean removed 1,188 sqft of insulation, the existing patchwork vapor barrier, and trash. Next, we proceeded with our standard process for remediation, using our HEPA vacuums and antimicrobial solutions, we removed the mold spores from all contaminated surfaces in the crawlspace. Following remediation, new code compliant insulation was installed along with a new 6-mil vapor barrier with taped seams along the floor of the crawlspace. Lastly, MaxGuard was applied to the walls of the crawlspace to prevent moisture seepage through the concrete block wall.
