Mold Remediation and Crawl Space Encapsulation in Fuquay-Varina

Fuquay-Varina, originally known as “Piney Woods”, as a quaint suburb of Raleigh and is located in the south western point of Wake county. Fuquay Varina was established in 1909 and was given its current name in 1963 when two smaller towns Fuquay Springs and Varina were merged. This little town is rapidly growing and has seen its population nearly double since 2010. Residents are drawn to Fuquay Varina’s rich history and small-town charm. The area is also teeming with restaurants, shops, and parks among the towns adorable little downtown, its no wonder people are drawn to it.

Due to the rapid growth, like most of the triangle region, Fuquay is a beautiful mix of new and old; tons of historic buildings and homes as well as miles of new construction. Historic properties are known for having moisture problems but what people do not realize is that new construction is equally as vulnerable due to materials being left out in the elements.

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Before and After Crawlspace Encapulation in Raleigh

Elite Moisture Solutions provides its customer with moisture prevention services like vapor barrier installation, French drain installation, sump pump installation and crawl space encapsulation systems. These items allow you to resolve active moisture issues and prevent future moisture problems from occurring. Our expert inspectors provide customized services plans that are tailored to your home/business and moisture problem. The same inspector will re-inspect the property after the work is complete to ensure the job was done correctly and that you are happy with our work!

Why Our Encapsulation is Different

  • We remove standing water and debris from within the crawlspace

    Standing water can produce mold and loose debris can puncture your liner so we clean everything out first

  • We seal off all vents, openings, gaps and cracks

    This prevents exterior moisture from seeping into the crawlspace

  • We remove mold that can produce spores

    Even dead mold can produce spores, so we perform a mold remediation when mold is found

  • We replace fallen and damaged insulation

    Replacing destroyed insulation in your crawl space will ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible

  • We install sump pumps and/or French drains when needed

    Sump pumps and French drains can divert water from flooding (which can cause mold) away from your home

  • We use high quality reinforced liners

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

  • We apply insulation to the crawl space walls

    This aids with further moisture control and conditioning of your crawl space

  • We install a dehumidifier

    This guarantees that the moisture and humidity levels within your crawlspace will remain low

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    We provide our customers with the peace of mind that their crawl space encapsulation will last for years to come

What are the mold health risks?

Exposure to mold (especially when it is prolonged) can negatively impact your health. Even though not all mold is toxic, most mold is allergenic and can affect those with respiratory issues. The most common symptoms/side effects of mold exposure include:

  • Eye irritation
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Increased allergy-like symptoms
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irritation in people with asthma
  • Sneezing
  • Skin Irritation/Rashes
  • Fungal infections
  • Headaches
  • And more…

How do I know if I have mold?

Mold can be easily detected through smell and visual indicators. You may have mold if you notice any of the following indications of mold:

  • Increased allergy symptoms
  • A recent leak or flood
  • High humidity inside your home
  • A musty smell
  • Buckling/cupping in your hardwood floors
  • Different color spots on surfaces (black, brown, green, yellow and white are most common)

However, mold can still be present without any of the above indicators. In this case, a sample can be taken to test for the presence of mold.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor air quality testing is a cost-effective way to ensure the air in your home or business is healthy. We use a third-party laboratory to review and analyze the sample taken by our experts. The laboratory will provide you with results that detail the presence of mold spores as well as other indoor pollutants that are present in your home. If you are unsure if you need an air quality test, call us to schedule a free consultation.
