Glenwood Mold Removal
This Glenwood mold removal project in this crawlspace was due to a leaky gasket in the sump pump. Every time the sump pump would water out of the basement a small sprinkle would hit the wood here. The consistent water led to mold growth
, so we had to clean it up. Our air scrubbers and mold removal work were great so we did pass the mold test at the end of the work.
The homeowners also had a bunch of wet cardboard and extra carpet in the crawl space. Don't leave stuff like that in your crawlspace due to the mess it makes when it gets wet. This stuff gets really mold in just a few days so you don't want to store somewhere like this. It is a recipe for disaster.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your Glenwood home:
1.) regular maintenance on your plumbing and roof
2.) replacing your sump pump every 2-4 years
3.) do not buy the cheap sump pumps
4.) rodding your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions
5.) avoid flushing baby wipes, paper towels, and feminine products
6.) check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage frequently
7.) regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion
9.) make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement
10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
11.) keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.
