What Causes Crawl Space Mold in NJ Homes?
In Ocean County NJ and in Monmouth County NJ, crawl spaces are often one of the most common areas for mold and moisture problems. Unfortunately, crawl spaces are not always easily accessible for homeowners to conduct routine maintenance checks. Often times, homeowners are not even aware of crawl space mold development until the odors have permeated through to the main living space. Here are some common problems that can leave your crawl space vulnerable to a mold contamination:
- High humidity – over 55%
- Undersized wall vents
- Insufficient air circulation
- Dirt or sand floors- emit moisture/water vapors
Ocean & Monmouth County NJ Crawl Space Mold Inspections
If you think you detect signs of mold development in your crawl space, you should contact a mold professional today. A trained and certified Mastertech mold inspector in Monmouth County NJ can conduct a thorough crawl space mold inspection and get to the bottom of the problem.
Visual Assessment – Your MasterTech Inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of all areas of concerns to determine if there are any conditions that would cause and sustain mold growth. All mold inspections will be digitally documented, and you will have access to all the files for your records.
Moisture Mapping – During your crawl space mold inspection, your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your crawl space to diagnose the water source and understand how many areas have been affected.
Moisture Meters – Moisture meters will determine the moisture content of building materials in your crawl space. Moisture locked within porous building materials like foundation walls can go unnoticed for a long time.
Thermal Imaging – Your mold inspector will be taking advantage of the temperature difference between wet and dry materials. By isolating all the wet areas of the crawl space, your inspector will be able to gain a further understanding of the mold growth pattern.
Crawl Space Mold Testing – Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold. If mold is confirmed in your crawl space, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.
Report of Findings – Your inspector will compile a clear and concise report that outlines all his/her findings. If necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective crawl space mold removal.
