Crawl Space Mold Remediation
Many homes in the North East United States have
crawl spaces. A crawl space can be defined as a
shallow area underneath a home that does not have
sufficient height for a person to stand which allows
access to plumbing, wiring and other utilities.
Crawl spaces are usually extremely conducive
to mold contamination since they are dark, damp
and offer many food sources for mold to grow. A
major problem is that soil is extremely humid, causing
mold to grow and since the natural airflow in a
house is from bottom to top this warm, moist air
rises in your home, bringing up with it the mold
contaminated air. In fact, up to 60% of the air
we breathe on the first floor of our home comes
from the crawl space. Therefore, moldy crawl spaces
can present serious health issues, often making
the occupants of the home sick.
Here is an example
of a vapor barrier installed on the floor of a crawl
This is designed to prevent moisture
from the earth from contaminating
Insulation in crawl spaces, as well as the floor
joists, cinderblock walls and even the plastic plumbing
pipes often become contaminated, causing mold remediation
to be necessary.
A crawl space remediation protocol will depend
on the severity of the damage and the materials
involved. Below is a worst case scenario of a typical
crawl space mold remediation project. Bear in mind
your problem may not be as severe.
- Fix any plumbing issues or other causes
for moisture intrusion such as gutter and downspout
- Set up containment to prevent the spread
of mold to unaffected areas of the home.
- Install a commercial dehumidifier to lower
the moisture content in the air. Often times
this is a permanent installation.
- Establish proper engineering controls so
that any combustion appliances and systems will
not be impacted causing a back draft issue.
- Bag up and dispose of all contaminated insulation
and debris throughout the crawl space.
- HEPA Vacuum all contaminated surfaces throughout
the crawl space.
- Clean all contaminated surfaces with an
EPA registered anti-microbial biocide.
- Sand wood framing to remove all imbedded
- Re-HEPA Vacuum all surfaces throughout the
- Encapsulate all contaminated basement surfaces
with an appropriate EPA registered mold resistant
- Clean and Sanitize the HVAC system. Mold
will often times enter the duct work in a home
through natural cracks in the system as well
as through the furnace area and return vents.
This mold contaminated air is then circulated
throughout the home. If laboratory testing confirms
this, air scrubbers must also be set up on each
level of the home to remove the airborne contamination.
- Re-Insulate the crawl space.
- Supply and install 6 mil. plastic sheathing
on the floor of the crawl space. This is designed
to provide a vapor barrier preventing moisture
from coming up through the ground which will
cause mold to grow.
- Return after several days to remove the
- Break down and remove containment.
