We received a call from a home owner in Mashpee recently, asking us to inspect the home’s crawl space for a moisture and mold problem. For mold removal Mashpee – Cape Cod Mold Pros. Sure enough, upon inspection, we detected water and traced the source to a crack in the foundation block.
Removal and cleanup of the mold we found included out standard protocol of establishing negative air pressure, the removal of insulation, HEP vacuuming, and biocide wash. We contacted a local mason to patch up the crack in the foundation and remove the source of the water leak.
Once assured the water leak had been properly patched, we re-insulated, and installed a poly plastic vapor barrier to cover the dirt floor in the crawlspace to suppress any rising moisture. Without a source of moisture in the crawlspace, we don’t anticipate another mold problem needing further remediation.
Remember – – The Pros inspections are FREE. So, if you suspect a moisture problem in your crawlspace, basement or attic, don’t wait – – call for your FREE inspection today.
