Denver Crawl Space Cleanup

Moisture and trapped water pockets can become a problem within home and business crawlspaces. In some situations, given the right conditions and environment, crawlspaces become mold reservoirs, leading to mold exposure throughout the home or business. To best address water and crawl space mold damage situations in your home or business, contact us today.

A few tell-tale signs can tell you if the crawl spaces in your home or business may be in need of water and damage restoration and cleanup:

  • Poor air quality is a problem within the living and working spaces of the structure
  • A musty odor permeates the structure
  • Family members or employees suffer from increased allergies and/or breathing issues and asthma
  • Family members or employees suffer from chronic headaches
  • Multiple and/or recurring pipe breaks
  • Warped or buckling floors
  • A certified home inspector mentions crawl space mold and moisture growth

Many crawlspaces are built with foundation vents which are designed to help keep moisture problems in check. However, research indicates such vents may actually allow in more moisture than they block. Traditional vented crawlspaces have one vent for every 150 square feet and one vent from each corner of the crawlspace. Some also feature fan systems to draw additional moist air into the crawlspace.

Recent years have seen a rise in closed crawlspace systems to help control moisture and mold. Such a system works by enclosing the crawlspace with a moisture barrier and installing liners up piers and walls, thus sealing vents from the outside air.

In addition to blocking moisture, closed crawlspaces can help the environment by reducing heating and cooling bills for home and business owners.

Mold requires moisture to grow. Vented crawlspaces can serve as a hospitable environment for mold to grow. During humid or rainy weather months, a vented crawlspace can become damp with moisture. This warm moisture encourages mold growth on wood, HVAC ducts and other organic material in the crawlspace.

Mold growth is sometimes visible on wood beams and joists. Mold can grow, however, on most organic host surfaces. Condensation can form on HVAC duct lines when homes and businesses use air conditioning systems. Cool flooring and air ducts offer an environment for mold growth.

  • “My home was damaged by 2 hail storms and water began leaking down the walls and settling on the floor. I tried 5 different water mitigation companies and couldn’t even get a call back. My insurance company recommended Rainbow Int. and they had 2 guys out to check out the situation within 2 hours of my initial call. My insurance company recommended Rainbow so they are handing all of the billing directly.”

  • “We have a ton of visitors scheduled this summer so I let Dave, the site manager, know that they only had a week to get everything done. The crew was first rate and the house is completely dry and ready for construction to begin on time. Instead of just tidying up my home with a shop vac, as many contractors will do, they sent out a professional cleaning team to ensure that everything is perfect.”

    ~ Satisfied Customer
  • “Our vacation home in Conifer suffered major water damage when a pipe fitting failed and water spilled onto the main floor for 5 days before my neighbor noticed it. Hard wood floors ruined on main floor, downstairs carpet and drywall destroyed. Rainbow Int. was very quick to respond and did an outstanding job cleaning up the mess. They were prompt, they were thorough, and they kept me in the loop the whole way, even though I was 1000 miles away in California. If you have water damage and you want it cleaned up quickly, I highly recommend Rainbow Int.”
