Mold Remediation and Crawl Space Encapsulation in Cary

Cary, a popular Triangle suburb, is a beautiful town conveniently located in between Raleigh and Research Triangle Park. Cary consistently is recognized for being one of the safest places to live in America and is in the top five best places to live in the country. This likely can be contributed to its convenience to the airport and the triangle, great grade schools, convenience to great colleges, and its location being halfway between the beach and the mountains. This town has a quaint small town feel with the conveniences of the bigger cities.

Established in 1750, Cary encompasses nearly 60 square miles of mature landscapes, small lakes and tons of large subdivisions. The average age of homes in Cary is 20 and, like most homes in North Carolina, the majority of homes are built on a crawlspace. This is important because older homes, near water sources and built on crawlspaces are prone to moisture problems as well as flooding which can cause water damage that leads to mold growth. Elite Moisture Solutions can help by providing you with a free visual inspection of your home or business and educate you on what needs, if any, your home may have. Our sole purpose is to help provide you with the peace of mind that you and your family are living in a safe and healthy space!

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Before and After Crawlspace Encapulation in Raleigh

Things like moisture, wood rot, pest issues, high humidity, and mold are common problems found in crawl spaces. Crawlspace encapsulation systems are designed to eliminate excess moisture and humidity which cause mold, and shield the area under your home with a protective barrier that will keep out pests, protect your HVAC equipment and ducts, and provide a seal by which will lower your energy costs.

One of our expert inspectors can perform a free visual inspection and consultation to determine what needs, if any, you may have. They can provide you with a customized service plan sealing the crawlspace under your home that will solve the problem and suggest preventative measures that can be taken to ensure these issues do not happen again in the future.

Why Our Encapsulation is Different

  • We remove standing water and all debris from the crawlspace
  • We seal off all cracks, vents, gaps and openings

    This prevents exterior moisture from seeping in

  • We perform mold treatments and physically remove all mold

    Before sealing the crawlspace, it’s important to remove all mold  since dead mold can still produce spores

  • We replace destroyed insulation

    Fallen and damaged insulation is replaced to ensure your home can be as energy efficient as possible

  • We can install French drains / sump pumps when needed

    This can help prevent flooding and excess water buildup

  • We use reinforced liners

    Reinforced liners are much more durable, and last longer than regular liners / vapor barriers

  • We apply insulation to the walls of the crawlspace

    This provides additional protection and conditioning to your crawl space

  • We install a dehumidifier

    This guarantees that the moisture / humidity levels in your crawlspace will remain low

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    You can rest assured that your crawlspace encapsulation was done the right way using the highest quality products and installed by experienced technicians

Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space

  • Improves indoor air quality
  • Eliminates potential for mold growth
  • Increases lifespan of equipment under your home (water heater, HVAC, plumbing, etc.)
  • Prevents wood rot to subflooring and structural wood
  • Provides greater insulation which makes your home more energy efficient
  • Provides additional controlled environment storage space
  • Improves your homes marketability for resale
  • Reduces pest infestations

Mold Remediation

Water damage can sometimes come in obvious ways by visually seeing or hearing a leak, but often it’s not noticed until there are water rings on the ceiling from a leaky roof, or water rings on walls where there might be pipes that are leaking. Besides the repairs are necessary to remedy what caused the leak and damages to the wood and drywall, most homeowners understand that mold comes hand in hand with leaks, but what most homeowners don’t realize is the actual number one source of mold might be growing directly under their feet, within a crawlspace where moisture can accumulate and cause widespread mold, thereby requiring professional mold removal in order to eliminate the mold.

Elite Moisture Solutions can inspect not only the areas where water damage has occurred, but also under your home or business where the largest amount of mold can grow. Our team can achieve this by delivering our customers with free consultations and inspections as well as options that include air testing for mold that is affordable and highly accurate. If mold is identified, our team will develop a plan that will eliminate the source of the water damage or moisture that is causing the mold growth and remove the mold from your home or crawlspace. After the mold removal work has been performed, our inspector will return to perform a second test to ensure that job was performed successfully. Our mold remediation team wants to ensure your experience is quick, thorough, and affordable so you can rest assured that your property is free of any dangerous mold!

Indoor Air Quality Testing

The very best way to determine if you have mold is to have an indoor air quality test performed that can not only detect if mold is present, but the concentration of mold in each area and what type of mold is growing there.

At Elite Moisture Solutions, we offer our customers with low-cost testing for air quality that detects mold levels, and free visual inspections which allows us to ensure the process is simple and affordable. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked in the top five environmental dangers by the EPA. The test our team performs will provide detailed results from a third-party laboratory that includes a thorough explanation of what was found in the air and in what quantities. Our team can then work with you to create a customized service plan to resolve the issue, if needed.
