How Crawlspace Encapsulation Protects Your Ft. Worth Property From Mold
Securing Your Fort Worth Home from Water Damages and Mold
Working to protect your Fort Worth property from various damages can feel like a constant task for many homeowners. With the threats of severe weather systems passing through the region and unnatural occurrences that can flood or cause water damage to the house, homeowners work to implement as many precautionary measures as possible. Crawlspaces, unfortunately, are left out of this preventative stage much of the time because of their difficult access.
The crawlspace of your Fort Worth home is often the most susceptible to aspects like mold damage resulting from water damage and persistent moisture. Once this area of the property gets affected by this lingering dampness, mold spores can colonize and begin to move up into the home and spread through the trafficked areas of your main floor. Our SERVPRO rapid response team can respond quickly to the discovery of mold growth in your home, as our team is ready 24 hours a day for the disasters that threaten our customers.
While we can work to contain the spread of the mold throughout the floor above the crawlspace, this area of the property must get addressed by our professionals as well. We can begin by working to remove the active colonies in this area through our remediation tactics and then restore the damage to structural elements that might have resulted from the growth. Our SERVPRO technicians can then look to identify the source of the moisture threatening this area of your home and remedy that with water diversion equipment like sump pumps.
Crawlspace encapsulation is becoming a popular solution for our customers because it protects the entirety of this space below your home and prevents water damage from affecting structural elements again. These components and the ground get covered in a thick 12mm plastic sheeting once the mold colonies get removed and the supports, beams, and framing get sprayed with an antimicrobial solution.
While many homeowners might neglect to protect their crawlspace, the discovery of mold can demand a permanent solution to protect your home and its occupants. Give our SERVPRO of Northeast Ft Worth restoration specialists a call today at (817) 741-5737.
