What Is Mold Soda Blasting?

Mold remediation is simple: it’s the process of removing mold and preventing its return. At AFS, we use a method called soda blasting

Soda blasting is a cutting-edge mold removal technique. Unlike traditional methods that often contain harsh chemicals, soda blasting uses sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to safely and effectively remove mold from wood surfaces without causing damage.  

This process is not only efficient in eradicating mold but also deodorizes and sanitizes the area. When used with our other crawl space encapsulation tools, soda blasting prevents future mold growth. 

Signs You Need The Mold Soda Blasting Service

Since mold is a product of crawl space moisture, it usually coincides with other types of water damage. If you notice any of these issues, you may need to consider mold treatment: 

Ignoring signs can result in more complicated and costly repairs. Contact AFS for a free inspection as soon as problems are identified.

Is Mold Soda Blasting Necessary? 

Yes, soda blasting is necessary. Delaying mold removal can lead to extensive damage and higher repair costs. We do not recommend DIY treatments. Removing mold yourself can pose health risks, especially if you inhale the fungus or allow it to come in contact with your eyes.  

Without the proper tools and training, venturing into your crawl space alone can be dangerous. Working with a professional team like AFS is best when dealing with crawl space problems. 

Mold remediation is a crucial part of our comprehensive crawl space encapsulation system, using various waterproofing tools to ensure your home remains safe and healthy.

Safe and Non-Toxic 

One of the primary advantages of soda blasting is its safety. The process uses sodium bicarbonate, a natural, non-toxic substance found in many household products. This means that during the mold removal process, no harmful chemicals or toxic fumes are released into your home environment.  

This safety aspect is particularly beneficial for homes with children, pets, or individuals with sensitivities to harsh chemicals. By choosing our method, you’re opting for a product that’s effective against mold and also ensures the health and safety of your family. 


Our mold soda blasting service effectively removes mold from wood surfaces without causing damage. Traditional methods may use harsh chemicals, potentially damaging the wood’s surface.  

In contrast, the sodium bicarbonate particles used in our technique are much softer on impact, removing mold while preserving the structural integrity of the wood. This gentle yet effective approach ensures that your crawl space is thoroughly cleaned of mold while maintaining the longevity and safety of your home’s structure. 

Quick and Efficient 

Time efficiency is another significant benefit of soda blasting. Traditional mold removal methods can be time-consuming, requiring multiple treatments or lengthy application processes.  

By contrast, our method is quick and efficient. Our experienced technicians treat large areas, significantly reducing the time your home undergoes mold remediation. This minimizes disruption to your daily life and quickly restores your crawl space to a safe and healthy condition.

Mold Soda Blasting FAQs

Soda blasting is generally safe for most surfaces, but it can be too abrasive for very soft or delicate materials. Always consult a professional before using on questionable surfaces.

Proper safety gear, including gloves, goggles, and a respirator, is essential to protect against inhaling mold spores and baking soda dust.

The time required depends on the extent of mold growth and the size of the area being treated, but soda blasting is generally quicker than manual scrubbing methods.
