Mold Remediation and Crawl Space Encapsulation in Raleigh

Raleigh, also known as the “City of Oaks”, is North Carolina’s capital city and was founded in 1972 by Sir Walter Raleigh. Raleigh’s long history has created a diverse and robust culture rich with museums, festivals, music, art galleries, restaurants and so much more. Raleigh’s temperatures average between 50 degrees in the winter and 89 degrees in the summer with rainfall averages of about 46 inches per year. The mild weather allows for exciting outdoor activities all year long. The capital city is also the primary point of North Carolina’s Research Triangle which is one of the most impactful research parks and a massive contributor to high-tech and biotech research. The excellent job market in Research Triangle Park paired with Raleigh’s desirable culture and climate has made Raleigh one of the United States fasts growing cities.

Rapid growth has brought tons of new development to the area which makes Raleigh a unique mix of historic homes and buildings and modern properties. Raleigh’s historic buildings, higher rainfall averages and dozens of bodies of water are a perfect recipe for moisture and mold where flooding and water damage often occurs. Elite Moisture Solutions’ experts are here to help protect your home or business from the threat of mold with services that remove mold, and crawl space sealing that can minimize the potential for mold. One call provides no obligation free visual inspections, so we can give you the peace of mind of knowing your property is safe!

Mold Remediation

There are often times where water damage is apparent and easily seen though discoloration in the ceiling or walls where either a roof has started leaking, or there are leaky pipes and steady drips of water have accumulated. Not only is there damage to the drywall or ceiling in these circumstances, but even worse mold can grow and spread. Although this can be concerning, the worst mold growth can occur under your home where moisture and humidity can allow mold to grow unchecked unless mold remediation is performed.

The mold experts at Elite can not only perform a free visual inspection of your property, but also have a low cost air quality testing for mold that can be done in cases where mold can’t be seen. If mold is discovered, our inspectors will draft a customized mold removal service plan that will include how the team will repair the source of water damage or moisture, and remove all the mold from your home or company. The technicians perform the work swiftly to make sure you are not inconvenienced for long, and will then complete a second inspection and another round of air tests to confirm the job was completed effectively.

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Before and After Crawlspace Encapulation in Raleigh

The area under the home is prone to not only flooding, but can also have increased levels of moisture and humidity. Couple these factors with darkness, and you have the perfect environment for mold growth. Although North Carolina changed it’s building code in 2005 to ensure new homes all have crawl space encapsulation systems, most older homes still have crawl spaces that have no barrier between the wet damp area under the home and the floor of the interior. This not only can allow dangerous levels of air from mold to enter the interior of the home, but exterior elements such as heat, cold, and humidity can leech into the home as well.

The professionals at Elite Moisture Solutions understand the benefits of what a sealed crawl space can offer, so our highly trained technicians have been taught how to develop custom-suited crawlspace sealing service plans that are designed specifically for your home or business. You can not only get a custom plan the same day as your appointment, but you can also take advantage of discounts offered for those who are ready to get started. After the work has been performed, the sealed crawlspace job will be re-inspected to ensure the work was completed successfully and that you are satisfied.

Why Our Encapsulation is Different

  • We remove all standing water and debris within the crawl space

    Standing water can lead to mold and loose debris can eventually puncture the liner

  • We seal off every vent and opening, along with sealing all gaps and cracks

    This creates a complete seal against exterior moisture that can seep into the crawl space

  • We remove all mold under the home

    You can’t seal off the crawl space without first removing the mold since even dead mold can reproduce by spreading spores

  • We replace all destroyed insulation

    Replacing fallen and damaged insulation is a must which will increase the energy efficiency of your home

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

    If your crawl space is susceptible to flooding then we can install equipment that will remove it and divert it away from your home

  • We use heavily reinforced liners

    They are much more durable than regular liners and/or vapor barriers

  • We apply insulation to the crawlspace walls

    This further aids in controlling / conditioning your crawl space

  • We install a dehumidifier

    Dehumidifiers help maintain low moisture and humidity levels in your crawl space

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    Most importantly, you know your crawl space encapsulation will last because we stand behind it

Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space

  • Eliminates potential for mold growing under your home
  • Increases the lifespan of equipment under your home (HVAC, plumbing, water heater, etc)
  • Improves indoor air quality
  • Prevents wood rot to subflooring and structural wood
  • Provides increased insulation to your home which makes it more energy efficient
  • Improves your homes marketability for resale
  • Adds a barrier against pest infestations
  • Provides additional storage space free of moisture and humidity

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor air pollutants such as those from mold have been shown to have a significantly higher negative impact on our health than outdoor air pollutants. Toxins found in the air inside your home or business can trigger many health symptoms or have no symptoms at all which is what makes indoor air quality testing so important.

Elite Moisture Solutions’ team of mold specialists can help you discover if the air your family or employees are breathing is healthy. We use high quality equipment and testing methods that are non-intrusive and very effective. The air samples that are taken are sent to a third-party laboratory for a professional and detailed analysis. The results will provide you with a full scope of what is in the air that you are breathing, and if necessary, our team will come up with a solution to make your home or business safe again.

I had a gentleman show up to inspect a mold issue. He was very professional, on time, courteous, and helpful. We had a bit of a precarious problem (a dead cat was found in our crawl space) and he handled it professionally and privately to not disturb the kids. The man deserves an award! Thanks for all that you do!
