Mold Soda Blasting
Dealing with mold in your crawl space? AFS has the solution. Our mold remediation technique effectively removes mold, safeguarding your home’s structural integrity and your health.
As an industry leader in crawl space encapsulation, AFS offers an innovative method to solve immediate mold issues and prevent future occurrences. Discover the benefits of choosing AFS for a healthier home environment.
What Is Mold Remediation?
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 Mold Remediation
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:
- Visible dark mold stains
- Wet crawl space insulation
- Standing water in the crawl space
- Pests in the crawl space
- Wood rot
- Increased allergies or breathing issues
- High energy bills
- Sagging floors
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.
The Benefits of Soda Blasting
AFS’ approach to mold remediation is designed to be safe and efficient. When you choose to work with us, we guarantee these benefits:
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.
Mold soda blasting 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.
In 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.
