The Issues With Crawlspaces
Crawlspaces are often hideaways for mice, bugs, snakes, and other critters who live amidst the debris that exists under many homes. Moisture from leaky pipes, sweating HVAC, and natural ground water leeches up into the wooden joists and support beams and into your home. As we all know, moisture is the sworn enemy of wood.
The worst thing of all is that moisture brings with it mold and mildew which can damage the structures of your home. It also brings about respiratory and other ailments to the members of your family - especially the infants and elderly.
How To Resolve These Issues
- Clean out the crawlspace
- Solve the moisture issues
- Assess any potential damage and then
- Properly remove all microbial growth(IICRC standards)
- Provide a moisture barrier so that this damage will not continue
- Restore any damaged wood to its original strength and purpose to ensure structural integrity
In order to be in compliance with TN state laws, a mold remediation company must be C-14 state certified to perform a mold remediation. If you are paying for someone to remove any microbial growth they must be certified.
