To avoid the dangers of inhaling mold, you need to create a moisture-free environment. You can achieve this by adopting the following moisture prevention techniques:
Condensation usually occurs near and around your home's metal pipes, water heaters, and concrete walls. The water droplets left by this process encourages mold growth. To make things worse, the areas favored by mold are found in your basement or crawl space – places that are difficult to reach and maintain. Insulating your basement walls and encapsulating your crawl space can help solve your home's moisture problem. EcoSpect can help with encapsulation of a crawl space or insulation for a basement or crawl space. Call today at 585-207-3830 for a free estimate!
