Mold is a major problem many homeowners deal with and often, it originates from their crawlspace. Sealed Solution constantly finds mold problems that homeowners didn’t even know they had and works to provide mold remediation in Raleigh, NC, along with vapor barrier services.
What is a Vapor Barrier?
Vapor barriers are then membranes laid down to prevent moisture, mold spores and other pathogens from spreading in a crawlspace. 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 the home. The vapor barrier prevents this before it starts, protecting the crawlspace and the home itself.
Stopping Mold Growth
No matter what mold remediation 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 vapor barrier is the number one way to stop any mold growth in its tracks.
Vapor barriers disrupt the airflow and help to control the temperature of a crawlspace, eliminating two of the three core variables of mold. 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!
