A major problem with crawl spaces is that moisture can get inside and cause mold and mildew to grow. This can lead to mold and mildew growing inside the home by way of air passing up through the crawl space into the living areas that carry the spores along with it.
A homeowner in Ada, Oklahoma, contacted PIERMAN Foundation Repair for assistance with unpleasant health symptoms their son was experiencing. After a period of time of being affected by persistent coughing, sneezing, and other irritations similar to allergy symptoms, they decided to seek help by having the living conditions in their home looked at. After investigating, they found signs of probable mold growth in their crawl space and scheduled a FREE evaluation.
Our crawl space encapsulation and repair professionals inspected the home’s crawl space. They quickly discovered that there was a lot of mold and mildew growing there. The homeowner approved of the team’s decision to clean up the mold right away, so they got to work.
The floor joists were repaired and reinforced during the removal process due to wood weakness caused by the mold growth. Any and all affected insulation was replaced with a more hearty material to further eradicate any possibility of crawl space mold.
After our repairs were complete, the good news was delivered to the homeowners. There would be no more water intrusion or mold growth in the crawl space for years to come. Learning that their quality of life had improved made us feel even more responsible for our work.
