Do You Have Mold In Your Crawl Space?

If you see mold growing in your crawlspace, then we highly recommend you contact us ASAP to get rid of it. The type of mold that grows in  crawlspaces is known to significantly degrade your home’s indoor air quality, compromise the structural integrity of your home and put you and your family’s health at risk.

One of the best solutions to getting rid of the dangerous mold in your crawlspace is chemical-free Dry Ice Blasting, which blasts that harmful mold right out of your crawlspace.

Here’s an example of what dry ice blasting did for one of our customers in Raleigh, North Carolina:

Mold Remediation Dry Ice Blasting

The abrasion-free & chemical-free way to remove mold in Raleigh, NC

If you live in Raleigh or any of the nearby cities such as Durham, Cary, Apex and Chapel Hill, and you see mold and mildew growing in your carawlspace, we highly recommend you contact us to get itblasted away via our Dry Ice Blasting procedure. 

Dry Ice Blasting is a chemical-free, abrasion-free and residue-free method of mold remediation that fully removed any and all mold and mildew.

Dry Ice Blasting works by blasting dry ice pellets at -115°F at the mold and mildew covered areas in your crawl space which freezes and kills mildew and mold spores on contact.

The pressure from the Dry Ice Blasting also cleans the wood and any other surface being remediated. During the process, we depressurize the crawl space with a HEPA filter air scrubber and place positive pressure fans at the foundation vents to force the remediated air out of your home’s crawlspace.

If your crawl space happens to have a ground vapor barrier, we will roll it up, remove it from under your house, and haul the  vapor barrier away.

The end result is a clean crawlspace that is 100% mold free. 

To learn more about the Dry Ice Blasting process, we’d like to encourage you to watch the following video where we blast away mold in one of our customer’s crawl space in Raleigh, NC.

After Crawl Space Mold Remediation

After our crawl space mold remediation work is done, we highly recommend you have us seal your crawlspace so that the mold and mildew problem doesn’t return.

Reason #1 To Seal Your Crawl Space: Protect Against Mold

Here in Raleigh, North Carolina, our climate is very humid, which is one of the key ingredients for mold growth in a crawlspace. The other contributing factors include limited airflow, low light, moderate to hot air and high air relative humidity. The only way to avoid getting mold and mildew in your crawl space is to  properly seal it and add environmental conditioning, which includes air induction and/or dehumidification.

Reason #2 To Seal Your Crawl Space: To Improve Indoor Air Quality

Current science shows that around 40% of the air we breath in our homes originated in our crawlspace, so if your crawlspace has mold and mildew in it, there is a very good chance you are breathing in mold spores everyday.

In fact, an average vented crawlspace has such poor-quality air that finding mildew, mold, rust, wood rot, deteriorated fiberglass insulation, pest urine/feces/corpses, dust, pathogens, and decaying organic matter in the crawlspace soil is totally normal. 

This poor-quality air moves up into your home via the stack effect (natural movement of air upwards through a home) and can saturate your crawlspace-installed HVAC ducts and components.

The only way to keep the mold that forms down in your crawl space from getting into your home is to seal the crawlspace completely. The benefit of a sealed crawlspace is that it moderates relative humidity which inhibits mildew, mold, wood rot and rust. 

When sealing a crawlspace, the fiberglass insulation that is often found there is removed and no longer present to be an air quality deterrent. A sealed crawlspace can also blocks ingress points that pests like insects, rodents and snakes use to get in and out of your Raleigh residence. 

Furthermore, a high-quality vapor barrier will also guard against nasty vapors that can come up through the ground. We can further alleviate bad odors by applying a natural deodorization spray comprised of non-pathogenic bacteria and enzymes that are specially designed to consume (not just cover) any decaying organic matter that may be present under your vapor barrier.

Recent Crawl Space Mold Removal Customer Reviews

We had our crawl space semi-sealed, the vents sealed and a dehumidifier installed. I am very impressed with Matt and his no pressure sales style. He gave us options of what he could do and gave us a suggestion as to what he thought was the right thing for us to do. It was not the most expensive like most others but right for our needs. He and his crew were great. On time, organized, neat, friendly, answered all my questions and did I mention NEAT? Great job and a fair price. Also, Matt follows up after the job is done. Thanks Matt.

I am chair of the board of a small townhouse community in Chapel Hill. One of our buildings of has had crawlspace problems with moisture and falling insulation for years. We had periodically replaced the insulation which inevitably failed and the problem gradually worsened. When I first met with Brock Emmons my relief was palatable. He gave me a clear, concise, rational description of our problems - and he had solutions. Briefly Triangle Radiant Barrier did mold remediation, fully encapsulated the crawlspaces, and installed monitored dehumidifiers. Their team was prompt, efficient, courteous, and competent. Their work is protecting our home environment and investment. I highly recommend them.

Like others leaving reviews here, I spoke with other companies about helping me fix my crawl space. The home was new to us, but 25 years' old, and over the years a lot of insulation went missing, some mold appeared around some of the duct penetrations up into the first floor and in an area known to leak previously from gutter issues, had an exposed area of crawl floor with no vapor barrier needing attention, and wanted some crawl door "hatches" installed to assist with eliminating significant air leakage. They addressed all this work and added two air supply vents from existing duct to help feed air into the area and keep things dry. Matt did suggest using (and I bought it from him) a remote device for measuring the humidity level in my crawl, so now I can see how things are doing from family room (or anywhere) whenever I want. Nice. Everything from Matt's initial visit to estimating the work right on through to the final inspection was top-notch and professional. Matt provided pricing options for everything he saw, but then counseled me on what he thought would provide the best value for the money in terms of action items to do. I liked that a lot. Let me have some say in what I want to accomplish with the understanding of what it will cost so I can work my budget accordingly. The work was performed extremely well; they showed up as scheduled, the work was performed with great quality and attention; they cleaned up; and overall Matt and his guys were just nice and polite. I could not have hoped for a better experience and outcome. I intend to use TRB again in the near future to address issues in my attic this time. Matt has already priced out all the work, presented all the options, and suggested what might make the most sense to do (or at least start with). If you work with TRB, you will not be disappointed. This is a top-notch company.
