Mold in Crawlspace, West Des Moines, IA

Call on us to inspect your home to determine if there is mold in your crawlspace.

Mold is something that occurs naturally, and you should expect a certain amount of mold spores present in the air at all times. However, if conditions are favorable for them, they begin colonizing and can quickly take over a structure, causing damage and creating an unhealthy environment. Most of the time, a moisture issue or water leak is noticed and resolved early enough for mold not to become an issue, but when the problem goes unnoticed, such as in a crawlspace, mold has plenty of time to cause problems. At AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we offer a variety of services to prevent and resolve problems with mold in crawlspaces.

The best thing to do is be proactive and have crawlspace encapsulation done before mold gets started.

There are several things that can cause mold in crawlspaces, such as ineffectual rain gutters and downspouts, improper grading that allows rain to collect under your home, or issues due to inadequate ventilation. Rest assured that our services will resolve the problem, so you do not have to worry about mold and the dangers that excess moisture pose to your home and indoor air quality.

It may be tempting to ignore the presence of mold in your crawlspace since it is out of sight, out of mind. However, mold does damage the building materials it grows on and can eventually cause structural integrity issues. In addition, the spores can spread upward into your home where they can be an irritant, particularly to those with respiratory concerns.
