A crawl space is essentially a hollow area under the floors of some homes between the ground and the first floor. It’s usually roughly 1 foot to 3 feet high—just high enough for someone to enter by crawling, as its name implies (low ceilings!).

What to do for your Clients if Mold is found:
From Servpro of Northwest Spokane
Our Mold Process:
Our two stage dry fog process is done in hours not days. The environment created makes it impossible for mold, bacteria, or viruses to survive. The first stage is made up of peracetic acid (vinegar and hydrogen peroxide). The particle created by our fog heads is less than seven microns in size. Which is 30% smaller than any mold spores. Wherever mold could have possibly spread too our fog is going to get pushed into. Every nook, cranny, and crevice. Totally eradicating every cell. Because each room is pressurized with the chemistry and compressed air, the mold cannot hide. If there’s mold behind a wall, we simply drill a 1/2 inch hold at the base plate and fill the wall cavity that way. The only caveat is that the building needs to be dry.
The second stage is a silicone based antimicrobial that molecularly binds to every single surface in the building. Every wall, ceiling, floor, furniture, cabinets, countertops, etc… literally every surface gets fogged. Microscopically this coating looks like a bed of nails even though you’ll never know it’s there. Each one of the new microscopic spikes carries a positive charge that attracts the negative charge of any biological pathogen, and when said pathogen meets the spike the cell wall is punctured and killed on contact.
We know that the coating lasts up to seven years. However we only guarantee it right now for 12 months. This method will penetrate into the insulation so if doesn’t need to be replaced, and it’s a fraction of the cost for places such as attics.
After we treat a home any mold or staining left behind is inert matter and harmless. The affected material can be removed safely if the building owner requests it or can be sealed up and painted over without fear of it returning.
