PROPERTY INSPECTION ROBOTICS
Inspecting your home and locating the source of your problem is our main priority to ensure that all treatments performed are as accurate as can be. Introducing our new robotics division, we have added a new member to our team: the inspectorbot. This robot, which is equipped with a camera, is easily maneuvered to inspect hard to reach areas such as crawlspaces, roofs, rafters and attics. All results are documented with a special reporting software that makes inspecting these key areas extremely easy!
How Does Moisture In My Crawlspace Affect My Home?
Attics and crawlspaces are also highly susceptible to mold growth because moisture can easily accumulate in these spaces, often unbeknownst to the homeowner since very little time is spent in these areas of the home.
Why Is Moisture Accumulation So Common In Crawlspaces?
Consider the location of the crawlspace: it sits underneath your home right on top of the earth as your home’s foundation. Soil and dirt from the earth contain moisture and moisture is one of three requirements for mold to grow. Since moisture forms so easily in confined areas, crawlspaces are regular mold breeding grounds.
Moisture from dirt normally will evaporate into the atmosphere but can get trapped in a closed area like a crawlspace. When moisture is not vented to the outside, it can start to condense on foundation walls or subflooring, which can be especially a problem if the sub flooring is wood (wood is a food source for mold).
