Common Places for Moisture
Water is Mother Nature's most destructive force. Water in the form of excessive moisture in your home or business can lead to mold, mildew, rot, or other biological growth. These growths can lead to serious damage to your home and cause a variety of health problems for susceptible individuals.
Poor attic ventilation allows moisture to become trapped in the attic, potentially causing attic mold growth. Resolving the moisture issue is the first step. The AdvantaClean team will diagnose your attic moisture levels and mold issues. They will recommend and may assist the property owner in implementing corrective measures to resolve the water issues and make sure the ventilation is adequate. They will then remediate the mold issues and make the attic free from excess mold.
Crawl Space Moisture
Moisture in a crawlspace is caused by a variety of problems. Leaking household plumbing, blocked or broken HVAC condensate drains,uncovered earthen crawlspace floors, groundwater seepage from foundation issues, and problems with the roof drainage/gutters allowing water to run into the crawlspace are among the most common problems. Our crawlspace technicians can assess the problems and recommend ways to solve your crawlspace moisture issues. If mold has formed in the crawlspace, our team can remediate the mold protecting the structure and the health of those living or working in the building.
Many of the same issues that cause crawlspace moisture also cause basement moisture issues. The lack of a basement ventilation system and/or dehumidifier can contribute to excessive basement humidity. Improper exterior grading, problems with or lack of a roof rain gutter system, basement wall cracks can also added to the problem. Our technicians can assess the problems and recommend ways to solve your basement moisture issues. If mold has formed in the basement, our team can remediate the mold protecting the structure and the health of those living or working in the building.
