Make Your Home Safer With Experienced Mold Removal Specialists
Have you found mold growing in your home?
Discovering greenish-black spots along your walls and ceilings can be terrifying. It’s even worse to find out your crawlspace is coated in spores with no idea of how long they’ve been there.
Mold removal can seem like a daunting challenge. First you have to physically kill and clear out all the spores, then you have to deal with the damage left behind. The longer mold has to grow on your surfaces, the more it can break down and disintegrate your home’s foundation.
Dependable Home Services’ mold remediation services can help with all that and more.
As professional home renovation contractors, we have the knowledge and experience to get rid of the mold growth and fix the ruined areas. DHS can even help you prevent future growth with our other repair services.
What Causes Mold?
No one wants mold or mildew in their home, but sometimes you’ll find it growing in your dark and damp spaces. Since the only thing mold needs to grow is water and warmth, it tends to be found in your bathrooms, kitchens, basements and cabinets.
Moisture problems are the main cause of mold. These include:
- Poor ventilation
- Leaking pipes
- Roof leaks
All of these conditions create a buildup of moisture that encourages mold to grow and spread through your walls, ceilings and baseboards.
Mold Can Cause Health Problems
The longer mold continues to grow in your home, the more it can affect you and your family. Mold growth has serious side effects – in addition to the structural damage it causes to your home, it can also put your health at risk.
Mold exposure can result in:
- Itchy eyes, nose and throat
- Shortness of breath
- Chest tightness
Prolonged exposure will make these symptoms even worse. For older family members or those with asthma, mold growth can be detrimental.

Don’t let your family and your home suffer from a mold problem. When you discover the growth, call the expert remediation team of Dependable Home Services to handle it.

Since most mold problems come from moisture issues, our team will dehumidify the space to get rid of the dampness and find the root of the problem.
Once Dependable Homes has gotten rid of the mold from your crawlspace, there are a few things you can do prevent it from coming back:
- Vapor Barriers – a layer of plastic that covers your crawlspace floor
- Crawlspace Encapsulation – an entire process that involves liners, new insulation and more to completely seal off your crawlspace from moisture.
