Even though it’s August, the hot, muggy weather has not slowed down! Here in Kentucky, many home or business owners have noticed discoloration in their buildings. This discoloration could be the growth of a four-letter word no one likes to here: MOLD.
With all the rain and heat we have experienced this summer, many dark, damp places have had the perfect opportunity for growth. In the photo to the right, this corner of a crawlspace had not been checked for mold in quite a while. After our crew got to work, and reached the back corner, they found that this damage was significantly worse than they thought.
Even if you have a tight, small crawlspace, it is important to check it out often. When you catch the problem in the early stages, it is much easier to fix then when it has escalated to this extent.
