Waterloo Property Owners Often Rely On SERVPRO For Mold Remediation

Issues like mold damage in your Waterloo crawlspace can be initially difficult to detect.

Crawlspace Mold Growth Can Be Detrimental To Waterloo Homes

The crawlspace in your Waterloo home has several purposes, but it is primarily designed to protect it from the elements like soil moisture or flooding, and pests such as termites. However, it can be difficult to prevent moisture from accumulating in crawlspaces. With much of the structure of the building exposed in this area, persistently damp conditions can allow for mold growth to occur.

Issues like mold damage in your Waterloo crawlspace can be initially difficult to detect. Most homeowners do not regularly check this area, and mold growth can go undetected for an extended period, and may not be discovered until another problem requires inspection or a musty odor is detected inside the home.  Indoor air quality can be affected by crawlspace of foundation mold growth. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to identify the source of the moisture within the crawlspace, remove the mold growth occurring there, and suggest lasting solutions to help prevent the problem from recurring.

First and foremost, our professionals arrive at your address with a plan to contain the affected area and remove unsalvageable components if needed. We do strive to restore and not replace mold damaged timbers and other building elements. Once the mold has been removed, our experts can focus on drying out the affected areas and sanitizing, deodorizing, and sealing the environment. Our SERVPRO professionals can then suggest a lasting solution to prevent further mold damage moving forward.

Crawlspace encapsulation and the installation of a sump pump system can help prevent moisture from accumulating and affecting vital components of your home's construction. Many homes in NE have benefited from this service. SERVPRO recommends that you consider looking into this installation if your home is persistently plagued by dampness and mold infestations.

While you might not always know the condition of your crawl space, our SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest rapid response team can help you to overcome effects that might occur in your home when this area of your property suffers mold growth. Contact us anytime at (402) 800-2134.
