Effective Mold Treatment: Ensuring a Healthier Crawlspace

Crawlspace mold doesn’t just negatively impact the health of those in the home—it can negatively impact the health and value of your home itself. We offer mold treatments that are superior to common anti-microbial or anti-bacterial types of approach.

Our highly trained technicians perform a two-step treatment to clean your wood and surfaces within the space, kill any mold, and inhibit future growth. Following the application of the two applied materials, our technicians ensure that the material penetrates the wood for decades of protection. Our treatments come backed with a 10-year transferrable warranty.

Our treatments kill mold present on the floor joists, girders, and any other exposed section of your wood structure. The materials used also contain an inhibitor that help prevent mold recurrence. This also helps to minimize discoloration in the wood which can pose issues during home inspection if you’re considering selling your home in the future.

In addition to the mold treatment, it is essential to correct the conditions that led to mold growth in the first place. We analyze the conditions within your home and outline additional steps that can be taken to mitigate mold growth in the future.

10-Year Transferrable Warranty

All of our mold treatments come backed with a 10-year transferrable warranty. This means that you inherit the remaining lifetime of the warranty if you purchase a home that previously had a mold treatment done by Jersey Shore Crawlspace.

Why Mold Occurs Within the Crawlspace

Black mold can grow on virtually any organic material as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on wood, carpet, insulation, food, and paper. Being that mold eats or digests what it is growing on, crawlspace mold will cause structural damage if left unaddressed.

To prevent damage to the home and building components, save money, and avoid health problems, it’s important to control the moisture within your crawlspace’s environment and eliminate any current mold growth.

There are two main factors when it comes to mold growth within the crawlspace—the common thread being moisture. Mold occurs when the wood moisture content (the amount of water in the pores of the wood) exceeds 20%, and/or the relative humidity within the crawlspace exceeds 55% for a period of time.

Pipe leaks or prolonged exposure to standing water will accelerate mold growth and put your home at higher risk for repairs.

How to Inspect for Mold Growth or Conditions that Lead to Mold

Mold growth most often occurs on the floor joists, girders, and insulation within the crawlspace. During our crawlspace evaluations, our technicians test the moisture within the wood structure and both the outdoor and indoor humidity.

We use these readings, along with visual inspection of the crawlspace, for evidence of moisture intrusion or other issues that can contribute to mold growth.

Mold growth can often be visually apparent by means of discoloration, three-dimensional growth, and other factors, though our technicians rely on moisture readings as this is the recommended approach outlined by the EPA.

Mold testing is an added expense and is often deemed excessive, unless a health issue is occurring with a home’s occupant. Mold tests can range from $200-$600 and will result in the same recommendation, which is to treat any mold growth.

We offer a 10-year warranty that is completely transferrable in the event that you sell your home.
