Mold Removal and Crawlspace Sealing in Wake Forest

Wake Forest, established in 1880, is located in Wake County, North Carolina and is Raleigh’s northern neighbor. Wake forest is a beautiful suburb that is best known for being the original home of Wake Forest University. The beautiful North Carolina weather paired with Wake Forest’s abundance of outdoor spaces allow its residence to enjoy outdoor activities most of the year. Home to 10 parks, a number of lakes/ponds and an adorable downtown district, there is something in Wake Forest for everyone.

It’s long history and its rapid population growth make Wake Forest an interesting mix of older homes/buildings and new construction. The older properties, especially, tend to be prone to mold, moisture, and drainage problems which can result in flooding and water damage. The staff at Elite Moisture Solutions can help evaluate your property and develop a plan, if needed, to mitigate any issues you may be having!

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Wake Forest crawlspace encapsulation project

Installing a crawlspace encapsulation system under your home has a multitude of benefits besides eliminating moisture which can result in mold growth. A sealed crawl space can create a barrier to prevent pests from making the area under your home their nest, it can protect your HVAC equipment, pipes, and ducts to preserve their lifespan, but most importantly it can lower your power bills.

One call to Elite Moisture Solutions and you can rest assured our certified inspectors will come out to evaluate and develop a service plan that is designed specifically for your home or business that is not only affordable, but you’ll have the estimate the same day as the visit which will also include valuable discounts if you’re ready to get started. Once the work has been performed, the sealed crawlspace will be re-inspected to ensure the work was completed successfully and that you are happy with the results.

Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space

  • Eliminates potential for mold growth under your home
  • Increases the lifespan of equipment in crawlspace (HVAC, water heater, plumbing, etc)
  • Aids in improving your home’s indoor air quality
  • Prevents wood rot to structural wood and subflooring
  • Provides greater insulation under your home which makes it more energy efficient
  • Improves the resale value and marketability of your home
  • Reduces wildlife and insect infestations by adding an additional barrier to external pests
  • Provides moisture free additional storage space

Why Our Encapsulation is Different

  • We remove any standing water and all debris

    Standing water can produce mold and loose debris can puncture your liner

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

    We will provide a seal against exterior moisture from seeping in

  • We perform mold removal treatments when mold is found

    Before encapsulating your crawl space it’s wise to eliminate any mold that can spread

  • We replace all destroyed insulation under the home

    Damaged or fallen insulation should be replaced to ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible

  • We install French drains / sump pumps when needed

    Areas under your home that are prone to flooding should be addressed to prevent water buildup

  • We use the strongest reinforced liners available

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

  • We apply insulation to the crawl space walls

    This aids with additional moisture control / conditioning of your crawl space

  • We install a dehumidifier

    This keeps the moisture and humidity levels in your crawl space to a minimum

  • We provide a Lifetime Warranty

    We guarantee every crawl space encapsulation

Mold Remediation

Most people assume the need for mold remediation is limited to flooding or leaks from pipes, roofs, or water heaters, but what they don’t know is that the area under the house within the crawlspace is perfectly suited to mold growth. Mold thrives on moisture, humidity, and darkness which is abundant under your home unless your crawlspace has been sealed to prevent excessive accumulation from the damp conditions. It’s important to assess all areas of the home for mold even though your concern might just be due to water damage that you’ve experienced.

Elite Moisture Solutions’ team is committed to delivering their customers with healthy living and working environments, which is why we make it easy and affordable to remove mold by offering free visual inspections and low-cost mold testing options. If you’re contacting Elite because you’re having water damage issues from leaking pipes, a leaky roof, or a crawlspace that is continually flooding, then rest assured your home or business will not only be restored back to it’s original condition before the water damage occurred, but our mold experts will do a thoroughly free visual mold inspection to determine where mold has also grown. If mold is found, our inspectors will partner with you to design a mold removal strategy that will fit your schedule and your budget. We work diligently and perform quality assurance checks to guarantee that the job was done properly and that your space is mold free!

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Identifying mold isn’t always as easy as performing a visual inspection to determine if there might be the potential for mold, but oftentimes requires the need to do an indoor air quality test that identifies the presence of mold, the type of mold found, and the levels of mold toxins in the air.

At Elite Moisture Solutions, we aim to provide our customers with a healthy, mold free home or business, which is why our mold specialists provide free visual inspections as well as low cost comprehensive air tests that detect mold levels and types. When mold is detected, our inspectors will develop a customized service plan that will include how the team will resolve the source of moisture and remove all the mold from your property.
