Tampa Bay Homeowners May Find A Conditioned/Closed Crawl space Is The Answer To Their Warped Subfloors, Condensation and Mold Under Their Homes!!!

There has been a great debate on whether to have a vented/open or closed crawl space. Vented crawl spaces worked great until the invention of air conditioning. When a family keeps their home cool at around 72-75 degrees and the air outside is 85 degrees with  80% relative humidity is drawn into an open cool crawl space it can create condensation on support beams, floor joists, insulation and pipes. Ventilation will not solve this problem with humidity so high. The consistent high humidity and condensation  causes wood rot, mold and attracts all types of insects and termites in Tampa.

Closing a crawl space is now the standard for a lot of homes and will probably be part of the building codes in the near future due to energy efficiency reasons and prevention of wood decay and mold growth. Closing/conditioning a crawl space in post construction situations usually involves sealing vents, installing a vapor barrier if there isn’t one and installing a  high capacity dehumidifier such as a Santa Fe unit made by Therma-Stor to permanently keep the humidity around 40-50%.

Symptoms of a moisture laden crawl space could be a musty odor in the living area ,buckling wood floors or popping tiles. How the mold gets started is that the warm humid air coming into the crawlspace from the outside is cooled in the crawl space raising the humidity providing excessive moisture for mold growth. 70%+ Relative Humidity for 24 hours is all it takes to get the mold going.  This can also cause high humidity and mold growth in the living area  when A/C units may not be running in the cooler months of the year in Tampa.

 

Check out this Crawl Space Craziness in the picture to the below left from a previous Facebook post! Power venting is a great idea if there is dry air outside to pull through the crawl space but here in #Tampa it's usually hot, humid air being pulled into a cool #crawlspace causing #condensation, #mold, wood decay and warped plywood subfloors. Conditioning the crawl space with a vapor barrier and a dehumidifier is a far superior, healthier and more cost effective way to handle these humidity issues!tampa mold removal tampa mold remdiationpower vented crawl space
For many years to save money contractors would have a vented/open crawl space so they wouldn’t have to spend money on closing it but in fact a vented/open crawl space may in the long run cost more money because of insect, wood decay and mold problems that occur later on. If you live in a house with a vented/open crawl space, you might want to seriously consider having it inspected for mold or wood decay.

Foreclosures Full of Mold?

 

Yold Removal Tampa|Mold remediation tampaou've just purchased and moved into that new home which was a foreclosure. You are ecstatic because you got the home for a song and you can't believe it was such a great deal. A couple of days go by and all of a sudden everyone has the sniffles and is sneezing all the time. To make things worse a couple more days go by and then headaches, constant tiredness and breathing issues are a normal occurrence.

What makes foreclosures more vulnerable to having mold? Is this unusual? Unfortunately, it is not. There are a lot of homes now on the market with  such a large amount of foreclosures that have mold issues. With mechanical systems being turned off many times, the disease of excessive moisture rears its ugly head allowing the full-blown symptoms of mold contamination to wreak havoc in these foreclosed properties. This whole situation would've been easily avoided by running a simple high capacity stand alone dehumidifier but that solution requires common sense and planning which unfortunately is hard to come by these days. No air conditioner needs to be on since the air need only be dry while the home is unoccupied to prevent mold growth.

Many of the mold issues in these homes may not be the result of high humidity not being removed but may be the result of things like leaking pipes, roofs and hot water heaters going on undetected for months that can damage the home and the market value not to mention the health hazards involved.

So if you have a house you are looking into and would like to buy it because it’s a super deal,  be sure you check it for mold especially if it is a bank-owned property. " Caveat emptor! "

So if you are looking at a home you would like to buy because of the awesome price, please visit www.tampamold.net or CALL (813)358-4766 to have it evaluated for mold or correct any ongoing mold issues. Make sure you have a Home Sweet Home not a Home Moldy Home!!!

Penicillium Mold

Penicillium is a very interesting genus of mold . Definitely the Dr. Jekyll/Mr.Hyde of the mold world. First, there is Mr.Hyde. Maybe more like Mr.Hyde light. Penicillium species can cause allergic and asthmatic reaction in susceptible individuals as well as hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Penicillium is normally nonpathogenic with some exceptions. One exception is Penicillium marneffei, a dimorphic species capable of causing infection of the lymphatic system, the lungs, the liver, the skin, the spleen, and the bones. Penicillium marneffei can enter dermally, through breathing, and  the digestive tract. Southeast Asia and Indonesia are usually where these infections happen. Rarely does it run the risk of being pathogenic in people but its possible.

Now for Dr. Jekyll. So here is a good thing about Penicillium especially Penicillium chrysogenum. It's where penicillin comes from. A lot of you probably have taken penicillin when you had an infection of some kind. As a matter of fact, it kills more kinds of bacterial infections than you would ever think. This discovery of penicillin was done by Alexander Fleming in1929. He grew the appropriate amounts of Penicillium chrysogenum and it exuded a substance with Gram Positive bacteria killing properties which he named penicillin. Its antibiotic potential was discovered in the late 1930's. Toxic substances are produced by mold to kill off  fungi and bacteria that are competing for the same food source. One that kills off bacteria in humans when used at the proper amount is just what the doctor ordered. Also, several species of Penicillium molds are used to make cheese.

  • Penicillium camemberti, which is used in the making Camembert and Brie cheeses 
  • Penicillium Glaucum, which is used in making Gorgonzola cheese
  • Penicillium roqueforti, which is used in making Roquefort, Danish Blue cheese
Mmmm Mmmm I LOVE CHEESE!!!! This is definitely a good use of mold!!!
