Breathe Easy: Lafayette, IN Indoor Air Quality

Breathe Easy: Lafayette, IN Indoor Air Quality

Heat rises, and it is composed of fast moving particles. These fast-moving particles radiate out into the air. Air can contain impurities, and impurities can be added because of moisture. When moisture adds impurities to the air, mold and mildew result—and people can get sick.

Lafayette, IN Indoor Air Quality

According to the Mayo Clinic, almost all chronic sinus infections are a result of mold, and 40% of the air breathed in the home can come from the crawlspace. This should demonstrate well the importance of keeping moisture out of your crawlspace—which is where Crawlspace Remediation comes to the rescue! We are the experts in improving Lafayette, IN indoor air quality by preventing the accumulation of moisture in your crawlspace. The EPA recommends keeping crawlspace humidity levels down to 40%-50% in order to reduce the likelihood of mold formation.

Mold Inspection

Crawlspace Remediation is the ONLY certified air inspector in Lafayette, IN. We provide extensive mold inspection services that cover whatever areas of the home that you would like us to. The inspection can be limited to a single room, or it can cover the entire house, inside and out. And we don’t beat around the bush—our experts are able to perform immediate, on-site testing in order to identify whether or not any mold found in your home is toxic.

Fixing the Problem

We use Continuous Infections Microbial Reduction (CIMR) to fight mold in any or all rooms in your home or business. This technology continuously disinfects viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces, as well as dealing with mold and fungi. There are industrial units available for areas of heavy contamination, and we also have residential units for sale—which provide constant protection. These units have been approved by OSHA, so they are completely safe for people and animals. They have even been used in military bases and museums to preserve artifacts.

Although crawlspaces are built with vents in order to control the climate underneath your home, this precaution is not always enough. If there is a pool of standing water, it may be necessary to air out the crawlspace for several days. In worse cases, trenches may need to be dug and even woodwork performed in order to rectify any damage caused by the ill effects of too much moisture in your crawlspace.

If you are concerned about mold in your home, then we highly recommend having a mold inspection done to ensure that your Lafayette, IN air quality is top notch. And of course, if there is any damage, it may be a safety issue. So give us a call at (765) 637-5775, and we’ll give your crawlspace a good and careful look!
