Basement and Crawl Space Mold Removal in Greater Philadelphia and Baltimore

We provide expert mold testing and mold remediation for basements, crawl spaces, and more

home mold removal in Owings Mills

Mold detection and removal requires certified, experienced professionals in order to identify all existing mold and remove it safely and completely.

Mold damage in a home can be especially difficult to remove permanently. Without a trained and fully certified technician performing the work, the mold may not be completely removed, or it may simply grow back in a few months.

Mold damages personal property and also can seriously affect the health of many residents within a household -- especially those with asthma or allergies. A single square inch of drywall can contain between one and 10 million mold spores. It only takes three to five of those spores to cause a reaction in a sensitive individual.

    In this basement, the bottom of the moldy paneling was removed so that we could install WaterGuard and do mold remediation with Moldx2.  After the repairs were made, we installed the inorganic TBF Everlast wall system which is guaranteed for 50 years against Mold or water damage.

  • Wilmington, DE Moldy Crawl Space Repaired

    Wilmington, DE Moldy Crawl Space Repaired
    After

    This tall crawlspace in Wilmington, DE had lots of problems.  First there was a lot of dampness evaporating up from the floor and from the walls.  This needed to be resolved by the installation of the CleanSpace vapor barrier.  Second, the moisture had caused one of the joist to start rotting and deteriorating.   Attempts had been made in the past to fix this, but they were insufficient.  We repaired it properly using a galvanized steel I-beam with SmartJacks to properly support the joists. SmartJack come with a 25-year, transferable, nationally back, warranty.

    There was also a major problem with the insulation.  It had sucked up the moisture from the air and become heavy, which caused it to sag and fall.  There was a lot of mold due to the fact that fiberglass insulation contains organic materials.   The solution was to take it down and haul it away and replace it with SilverGlo around the perimeter. As you can see, the job turned out great and the customers were very happy. 

  • Philadelphia Rowhome Basement Transformed

    After

    The basement of this old Philadelphia rowhome smelled and looked like a dungeon. There was a lot of dampness and water seepage that caused mold growth. First, we remediated the mold and waterproofed the basement to make sure it wouldn’t grow back. We then used out semi modular system to finish the basement, making it into a brighter and useful space. We installed tile flooring, drop ceiling, and wall panels. The system not only looks beautiful, but it is specifically designed with inorganic material so that it is safe from water and will not support mold growth.

Things you should know about mold & mold remediation

  • Mold grows quickly: Mold needs only moisture, temperatures above 40 °F (4 °C), and organic material to survive. Mold can grow in 24-48 hours, preferring areas with no sunlight, limited airflow, and little disruption.
  • Mold destroys your home: Mold issues can dramatically lower the value of your home. A home with significant mold problems will be difficult to sell at any price. Additionally, mold can lead to serious structural damage to your home. 
  • Cleaning visible mold is not enough: Mold can grow in fiberglass insulation, on top of ceiling tiles, inside ducts, behind drywall panels, in wall cavities, and behind wallpaper. Even when it's visible, it's often impossible (even for an expert) to tell the difference between mold, soot, and dirt without testing. The mold you can see is just the beginning, and some of it is extremely hard to find!
  • Bleach & detergent will not eliminate mold: Bleach and detergent are useful for removing mold on nonporous surfaces. However, materials such as ceiling tiles, carpeting, and wallboard will have deep mold penetration and may need to be replaced. Removed mold will regrow unless all sources of moisture and humidity are eliminated.
  • Mold cleaning is hazardous: It only takes 3-5 mold spores to cause an allergic reaction, and some molds contain mycotoxins that are carcinogenic or deadly. Vibrations and movement will cause mold to release their spores; it's easy to accidentally knock hundreds of thousands of spores loose from a single patch of mold! And that's just a drop in the bucket: Recent research has shown that up to one billion mold spores can be found in just one square foot of drywall!
  • Mold removal requires professional equipment and training: Mold removal experts have a variety of state-of-the-art equipment that they use to identify sources of moisture, dry out wall cavities, and safely remove mold that is growing in your home. Samples of mold may be analyzed in a laboratory to identify potentially toxic strains, and special cleaning agents may be used to restore property.
