The crawl space of a home or business is often ignored. That’s why a poorly insulated crawl space is the perfect place for mold to grow. Mold leads to medical problems that can easily be confused for allergies or the flu. Side-effects mold cause include:
- Shortness of breath and/or chronic coughing
- Red, watery, stuffy, or itchy eyes
- Skin rashes
- Chronic sinusitis

Tacoma Crawl Space Mold Removal & Remediation Services
We here at Insulation Co. are experts at crawl space mold removal. We back our comprehensive crawl space mold remediation and insulation services with our combined 50+ years of experience. Our mold remediation in crawl space services include:
- Drying and mold removal: We can start by drying the mold and safely removing it from the building.
- Removal of mold-infested insulation: Contaminated insulation may contain mold spores. We will remove your insulation and install new insulation in its place.
- Mold control and mold primer: Our high-quality primer two-coat treatment will eliminate and prevent mold and mildew and comes with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
- Bath fan vent installation or repair: Instead of bathroom fans sending moisture through a roof’s vent, sometimes this moisture is sent to the attic. This makes the attic the perfect hotspot for mold/mildew growth. Our team can rectify this problem by connecting your bathroom fan to your roof vent.
- Additional ventilation installation: You can stave off mold growth by adequately ventilating your crawl space or attic. Our team can install ridge vents, eave vents, and other ventilation solutions.
Reasons Why Crawl Space Mold Damage Can Occur
There are many reasons why mold can grow and damage your crawl space. Some reasons include:
- Construction defects: A construction defect with the building, such as an improperly waterproofed roof, can facilitate mold growth.
- Improper maintenance: Not maintaining your crawl space and/or home can trigger mold production.
- Weather/Storms/Hurricanes: Following a hurricane or flood, mold can spring up within a day or two.

Frequently Asked Questions About Crawl Space Mold
When it comes to mold, there are some questions we get asked frequently:

- What kind of mold grows in crawl spaces, and what dangers does it pose? Three main types of mold grow in crawl spaces: black, white, and yellow. Black mold is the most common and deadliest.

The last type, yellow, typically feeds on wooden structures, causing them to rot.
