Crawl Space Mold Removal NJ

Crawl space is the part of the house, located between ground and living space. The difference between crawl space and basement is that it is lower than average human's height and absolutely unsuited for living.

Due to excessive moisture conditions, mold in the crawl space is quite common in New Jersey. Overly humid climate, frequent storms with floods are among the reasons why we at Above & Beyond Mold Inspection & Removal deal with crawl space mold removal pretty much on daily basis.

Causes of Mold in Crawl Space

Crawl space mold is usually connected with high moisture content, which often caused by natural floods, by the exposure of ground soil and, surprisingly, by the presence of the open crawlspace vents (which brings in a humid hot air from the outside).

Among leading causes of mold in your crawl space are:

  • Bare earth floor with porous soil near foundation
  • Missing or damaged Vapor Barrier
  • Ground water due to high water tables
  • Rain and Flood water
  • Faulty or missing Air Duct Insulation Materials
  • Exposed Plumbing Pipes and Joists
  • Poor Ventilation or Lack of it
  • Outdoor air getting into crawl space from outside
  • Water Evaporation leading to condensation
  • Poor drainage and/or lack of rain gutters
  • High relative humidity (RH)
  • Warm temperatures
  • Lack of sunlight

Where does Mold Grow in the Crawl Space?

As is always the case with mold, in crawl space you can find mold growing on organic materials, such as:

  • Insulation Materials
  • Concrete Blocks
  • Ground / Porous Soil
  • Dirt and Debris
  • Wooden Studs and Subfloors
  • Any Organic Stored Materials
  • Around Plumbing Pipes & Joists
  • Around Drain & Rain Gutters

How Dangerous Crawl Space Mold Really Is?

Mold in the crawl space can be a serious cause for concern. Due to the fact that warm air inside the house moves from the bottom to the top of the building, there is a good chance mold spores would spread out from your crawl space in the living part of property, putting your family's health at risk.

Also, besides being a direct threat to your health, crawlspace mold can put the integrity of your building's structure in jeopardy and seriously affect property value.
