Foundation Specialist can provide you and your family with affordable and effective mold remediation in the Western Michigan area. If you have basement or crawl space mold, you need to get it removed as soon as possible before it starts causing serious problems for your home's indoor air quality. A lot of homeowners know that they have mold underneath their home, but they figure that it's okay to leave it there since they never really venture into these areas. However, it doesn't matter what you use your basement or crawl space for, if there is mold, it needs to bre taken care of immediately.
Basement and Crawl Space Mold
Basement and crawl space mold looks bad and can make your entire home smell musty. Also, what's worse is that it can lead to a variety of health problems for all members of your family, especially children and elderly individuals who have weaker immune systems. Mold has been known to trigger the following:
- Asthma attacks
- Severe headaches
- Skin irritation and rashes
- Cold/flu-like symptoms
- Extreme fatigue
As you can see, these are some fairly serious medical problems. But, you don't have to deal with them! Let Foundation Specials MI come out today for a consultation. When you contact us, we will be able to come to your home and do mold testing. The tests will help us to determine how many mold spores are floating around in the air of your home. A dangerous amount will suggest a problem and we will investigate your basement or crawl space environment to determine where and why the mold is growing.
Causes of Mold Growth
A lot of Michigan homeowners want to know more about the causes of mold growth. Basically, mold needs three things to survive - moisture, high humidity levels, and organic materials to feed off of. If you get rid of just one piece in this "recipe," then mold can't grow. If you have a wet basement or leaky crawl space, we can install basement waterproofing systems or perform crawl space encapsulation to take care of the problem once and for all. We can also install dehumidifiers to control humidity levels underneath your home.
During the repair and installation process in your basement or crawl space, we can also clean up the mold which is already present. We typically see it growing on walls, floors, or even on boxes, curtains, clothes, or other things that you may have stored in this area underneath your home. Once the process is finished, we will test the air again for mold spores. A small amount is normal.
Please feel free to call us to learn more about mold remediation for your Michigan home. We look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you to get a mold-free, safe, and healthy home!
The best form of remediation is prevention. Installing a dehumidifier in your home gives you greater control over your home's humidity allowing you to create an enviroment that inhibits mold growth. The experts at Foundation Specialists will help you pick out the right model for your home's unique needs.
