Mold is a major problem many homeowners deal with and often, and it usually originates in your crawlspace. Sealed Solution in Raleigh, NC, constantly finds mold problems that homeowners don’t even know they have and works to provide crawlspace services including crawlspace vapor and moisture barrier services.
What is a Crawlspace Vapor Barrier?
Crawlspace vapor barriers are thin membranes laid down to prevent moisture, mold spores, and other pathogens from spreading in a crawlspace and then into the rest of your home. Without a vapor barrier in place, the damp, dark, cool nature of a crawlspace might be a great breeding ground for mold, which will release spores that enter the air and float up to cling on the ceiling joists of the crawlspace. Once they cling to the joists, mold starts to form and can quickly spread into your home. A crawlspace vapor barrier prevents this before it starts, protecting the crawlspace and your home.
Moisture Barriers Stop Mold Growth in your Raleigh, NC Home
No matter what crawlspace company in Raleigh, NC you talk to about mold growth, they’re always going to tell you the same thing: it needs to be stopped before it spreads! A moisture barrier or vapor barrier is the number one way to stop any mold growth in its tracks.
Vapor barriers and moisture barriers disrupt the airflow and help to control the temperature of a crawlspace, eliminating two of the three core variables mold needs to grow and thrive. Sealed Solution also strings lights in any crawlspace we work on, to help make it a friendlier place for people and a less-friendly place for mold. By mitigating mold-causing factors and sealing the home off from any spores or moisture, we’re able to prevent mold before it even starts growing!
