We have helped thousands of homeowners with their basement and crawl space mold problems. This fungus can grow on wood, boxes, paper, carpet, rugs, and insulation. This means that if you have old photo albums, family heirlooms, or antiques stored in your basement, they could all be destroyed. Also, if you have utilities there, they will have to work harder since this area is filled with high levels of humidity. To prevent growth altogether, Atlantis Waterproofing can install basement waterproofing and encapsulation systems for crawl spaces to make sure that the area stays dry, healthy, and safe.
When you need immediate help, contact us for quality service and expertise. One important fact to keep in mind is this fungus needs three things to survive: moisture, high humidity levels and organic material for it to feed off of. If just one of these ingredients in the recipe is missing, then it won't be able to grow. We have a team of specialists at Atlantis Waterproofing who know the ins and outs of mold control and will be able to help you. This fungus is dangerous, and it can cause a variety of health problems - especially in children and the elderly. It has been known to cause: breathing problems, respiratory infections, sinus infections, coughs, rashes, headaches, asthma attacks, and many other health problems.
Areas We Treat
If your home has noticeable mold growing on the floor, walls, ceiling, on boxes, or on anything else, be sure you get in touch with our specialists ASAP. The longer you wait, the worse the damage is going to get and the worse your health problems will be. When you contact us, we will send a knowledgeable, prepared team to your home to thoroughly investigate your home. They will determine the cause of the growth and will clean/remove it from surfaces. You will need to have a waterproofing system installed, along with a dehumidifier. We will work with you to determine which system will work best for your needs.
It's hard to detect here since you likely never venture into this area under your home. However, there are still some warning signs you can be on the lookout for. If you notice a musty smell coming up through your home, you probably have a problem. Also, if your family has recurring coughs, cold-like symptoms, headaches, or rashes, it's also likely that you have this fungus growing below your home. We can install an encapsulation system along with a dehumidifier to make sure that moisture and humidity can be controlled.
