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.

This crawlspace was damp, dirty and in desperate need of some help. The homeowner reached out to us to tackle the issues he was having with mold and water seepage. First we started by removing all the debris and old insulation. We then treated all the joists with our botanical fungicide, Mold-X2. Once the area was treated we installed a SmartSump pump system with a WaterWatch alarm to remove water and prevent flooding. Next we insulated the walls with SilverGlo wall paneling and lined the entire crawlspace in CleanSpace vapor barrier. Lastly, we installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, which will remove moisture from the air and prevent mold growth, wood rot, and odors.
This customer contacted us to looking for major help with his crawlspace. He was having issues with mold and standing water and was looking to clean up and waterproof the area. To start we treated the whole area with Mold-X2, which kills mold on contact and helps prevent any future mold growth. We then added Silverglo insulated wall panels along with our Cleanspace vapor barrier and drainage matting to provide protection from water intrusion. We also installed a Supersump sump pump system and a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier to keep moisture and humidity levels in check.
This customer contacted us for help with a moldy crawlspace with structural issues. The home was built in the 1800's and the crawlspace showed definite signs of mold infestation. We first tackled the mold by setting up a containment area, removing and disposing of all porous materials including the bottom of the drywall and the insulation. We then treated all non-porous materials, joists and and studs with MoldX2 and Botanical Fungacide and Sealer. Then we used a HEPA vacuum on the entire area, and fogged the area with a Sporicidin disinfectant. Next, we installed new joists alongside the existing old joists and finished stabilizing the area by installing our fully-adjustable, steel pier SmartJack support. To prevent future issues with water intrusion, we installed our WaterGuard perimeter drain system along with a SmartSump sump pump system. Lastly, we installed a Sedona dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels in check and the mold at bay.
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.
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.
