A Nashville Mold Remediation Expert
Mickey grew up in Middle Tennessee (Columbia to be specific). His business philosophy is to treat people right, and you’ll never want for business. The whole reason he joined the EPS team is to help people in their time of need. He spent decades in the corporate world at insurance carriers, not connecting with clients or solving their problems. As a mold remediator, Mickey gets to take the fear out of mold problems. The public only knows mold from the occasional day-time talk show piece or nightmare advertising designed to frighten them. People shouldn’t live in fear of their homes. When Mickey meets a new client, he aims to put them at ease and give them a plan of action.
Nashville’s Geography Harms Crawl Spaces
EPS Nashville has extensive experience with crawl spaces because Middle Tennessee’s geography is rough on them. Everything in the area sits on limestone-rich bedrock. Water always runs on top of rocks, so the ground doesn’t absorb as much as most parts of the U.S. Crawl spaces face water intrusion because of this. And there’s a lot of water to go around. Nashville gets more rainfall than Seattle, and in bursts too. Add in five to six months of 90 percent humidity, and you’ve got a recipe for mold in your crawl space.
New Construction Means More Mold
Everyone knows Middle Tennessee is growing fast. Famously, it adds 100 new residents a day. But the new homes built to house them are more susceptible to mold problems. In the name of energy efficiency, new homes get sealed up to keep outside air out. But outside air is what would be causing moisture in the house to evaporate. A closed home is a damp home, and a moist home grows mold. It doesn’t stop at the design though. Newer construction materials save money, but leave homeowners vulnerable. Beams and joists are made with engineered products. They’re stronger and less expensive than natural wood, but they have higher moisture content and are made with glues that mold loves to eat. So, if you live in Middle Tennessee and face any of these problems, call the experts at EPS Nashville today!
