Mold Growth in a Bristol, VA Home's Crawlspace
The puffy mold growths on the underside of a support beam in a Bristol crawlspace can impact the structural soundness of the home. Over time the weakened joists can cause the floors to sag and knock the house out of square--doors and windows won't open and close smoothly. The simple solution from SERVPRO is to chafe the mold from the beams using pressurized carbon dioxide pellets. This "ice blasting" technique is neat and very cost effective. The pellets sublimate into the air leaving no residue except for fungi debris. Fogging the entire crawlspace with an antifungal agent sanitizes and disinfects this enclosed space. A bonus, any air migrating into the main house has a more wholesome quality.
