Mold Remediation And Encapsulation Of A Crawlspace

Location: Crystal Lake, IL 60011

Problem: The customer came to us with condensation on the duct work in his crawl space. After further examination, mold was discovered in the crawl space as well.

Solution: In order to solve this problem, our technicians used HEPA vacuums to remove loose mold spores. Next they applied a non-toxic and hydrogen forming cleanser to remove the mold. Lastly, a mold stain remover was used to remove any pigment staining that was left behind by the mold.
In order to keep the moisture out of the crawl space, our technicians encapsulated it by adding a liner to the walls and installing drain fabric on the floor. The great part about this is that it will help diffuse soil gases, such as radon and can help reflect heat from the crawl space. The encapsulation will also keep out bugs and any moisture that could cause mold!

Attic Mold Remediation And Encapsulation

Location: Elgin, IL 60123

Problem: The attic contained large amounts of mold.

Solution: In order to remediate the mold, our technicians first used HEPA vacuums to remove the loose mold spores. Next, a mold stain remover was used to minimize the pigment staining left behind from the mold. Then, the technicians used a non-toxic, biodegradable hydrogen forming cleaner to suspend the mold from its root system. This helps to prevent the recurrence of mold in the attic. Lastly, the technicians applied a mold resistant coating to the attic. This creates a permanent, moisture-resistant barrier and helps prevent mold growth.

Mold Remediation In Attic

Location: Sycamore, IL 60178

Problem: Mold spores had contaminated the attic. This caused a significant staining issue on the decking and joists. Due to an improper amount of insulation, elevated moisture levels allowed the mold to grow exponentially.

Solution: The customer took care of the insulation problem himself. Our team then used our three step process of HEPA vacuuming, applying OxyPrep and OxyPar. This process was able to significantly diminish the mold staining, while removing the mold spores from the wood in the attic.
