Most people don’t think about the crawlspace under their homes or even the one above (the attic) until there is a problem. Often the first time you notice a problem is when you get a whiff of a foul odor. Due to these areas often being neglected for long periods of time, there may be some hazards under there that you were not aware of.
Mold contamination can be very detrimental to your health and if there is a chance of large areas of mold in your crawl space, it is best to hire a professional to clean the area. Inhaling mold spores can cause severe respiratory illnesses. Protective equipment and the correct chemicals are needed for clearing this hazard from your crawlspace and even in your attic if there has been moisture leaking in to the space.
