Fungal Growth

What Causes Fungi Growth Indoors?

  • Humidity: Homes in regions prone to high humidity are more likely to develop fungi

  • Leaks: Severe weather and general wear can cause roofs and pipes to leak. 

  • Poor Ventilation: Stagnant air promotes the growth and spread of spores

  • Condensation: Walls, floors and pipes in your home all easily hold condensation when the seasons change.

Suiting-Up Process

  • As with any other potentially hazardous process, such as the removal of lead-based paint or asbestos, fungal remediation workers fully suit up for action: head-to-toe white suits, booties, respirators, and goggles. 

  • Many types of fungal growth found in the home are not hazardous. Instead, this is the standard operating procedure for remediating: assume that it is toxic even if it is not.

Spray Down

  • The first step of this process is to spray the fungal area with an anti-microbial spray. Our anti-microbial spray is an EPA-registered product that will both kill and prevent fungal growth on wood surfaces, sanitize the treated area can help prevent wood-destroying insects. 

Wait Period

  • After the workers leave, the anti-microbial goes to work, killing the spores. The wait period depends on how long it takes for the anti-microbial to kill the fungi and to dry. 

Address The Cause 

  • As soon as the surfaces have dried, it's safe for the occupants to move back into the area. The cause of the fungal growth should be addressed after the remediation process has been completed: leakage through the roof; humidity from the bathroom or kitchen; leaking gutters and drainpipes. etc

Preventative Measures

Crawl Space Vapor Barriers

Vapor barriers are becoming a popular solution for avoiding indoor moisture issues. Vapor barriers primarily defend against the moisture vapor from the soil.


Sump Pump

A sump pump is a mechanism to remove water from the lowest point in your home (like a basement or a crawlspace), along with the soil below, and forces it out into a draining space to avoid flooding, water damage, and fungal growth.
