Mold Detection & Removal for Your Home and Crawlspace

It is essential to hire a mold remediation contractor who has extensive experience in mold inspection because many times the damage can be unseen.  There is more to mold than meets the eye, sometimes it’s hidden  and it is important to understand the growth patterns of the mold in order to properly estimate the remediation cost.

 Our experience causes us to find the root of the problem first.  We identify mold issues and determine the source of the moisture that caused the mold growth, and begin there.  Correcting this will permanently correct the problem and any secondary issues that stem from the root.

In a crawlspace, mold can show up because of condensation on leaky HVAC ducts, because of a water leak in the foundation or from ground water that rises and then has no where to go.

We have performed mold remediation for over 20 years from a small laundry room project to being on the national disaster team for Katrina.

Mold Protocol Remediation Plan

After we do an inspection, find the issues and know what we are dealing with (types of mold or fungus), then we can write a protocol.  A mold protocol remediation plan is basically a plan based on specific criteria.  This criteria can include:


      1. The cause of mold contamination.
      2. Location of affected area.
      3. Methods of containment and remediation.

Every case is different.

Mold removal services from Gilbert and Son, a family owned company with over 50 years of experience, provides affordable, fast, and effective solutions to your mold problem.

Reasons to suspect the presence of mold within your home:


  • Obvious growth on surfaces and/or walls
  • The smell of mildew
  • Damp areas within the home
  • Discoloration around your HVAC air handler or register vents, in your tub or shower especially in tile grout, or under your sinks.
  • Closets have a mildew, musty, or moldy smell
  • Water marks on any ceilings possibly from roof leaks or other sources
  • High humidity within your home which is higher than normal
  • Some form of previous water damage that occurred to your property

Mold will commonly hide inside walls, and it relies on moisture to grow. Many times, you can see it but often you can’t see where the mold has colonized. In general, if you can see mold it is likely that there can be a lot more mold that you can not see. That’s why it’s important to contact a mold remediation company like Gilbert and Son, a locally owned small business to inspect and evaluate your mold problem so that we can put together the necessary protocol (procedure) to remove your mold and/or render it to a harmless state.


Many studies have shown the possible links between mold and various health symptoms. These symptoms can include headaches, rashes, watery eyes, chronic coughs, and various other respiratory conditions. If your home has a mold problem your property value can be affected and if you are selling it can disrupt your real estate transaction.

    Mold Assessment and Mold Remediation FAQs

    In order to maintain a healthy home it is of the utmost importance to understand issues regarding mold, the effects of mold, and if deemed necessary proper mold removal procedures.

    What's Mold?

    Mold is a fungus. It can grow anywhere that there is moisture and organic material. It can grow on food and plants, in soil, or inside our homes. The reproduction of mold involves the release of mold spores when can then spread through air and water.

    What causes Mold to Grow in your Home?

    A wide variety of things can cause mold to grow in your home. Anything from window, door, and roof leaks to plumbing heaters, clothes dryers, to steam from showers or cooking to poor attic ventilation. Generally the best temperature for mold growth are 77 to 86 degrees though in some instances it can grow outside of that range. Mold tends to thrive in warm, moist, and humid environments where a nutrient source exists.

    Where May Mold Grow Inside My Home?

    Anything from drywall to plywood, carpets, carpet pads, wood flooring material can act as a nutrient source for mold. Mold can grow in your carpet when placed on a flooring substructure that allows moisture to penetrate.

    G&S 5 star review

    "I called Gilbert and Son for a Second Opinion and I'm Glad I did." - Bradley Jones

    "Had some structure issues in my crawl space so originally I called a local termite company, they came out and said I had a eight rotted beams and a bunch of broken floor joists. They gave me a $20,000 estimate so I called Gilbert and Son for a second opinion. The owner Mike came out and looked in the crawl space and informed me that I had one rotted beam and two broken floor joists and then explained why that was causing my floor to sink. They were able to fix everything and install a new vapor barrier for under five grand. I’m so happy I called them and escaped being ripped off by the termite company. The technician Paul and his helper were very clean and professional and did a wonderful job. Highly recommend this company. Keep up the great work guys!"

    “My cough cleared up after they fixed my crawlspace” - Janet

    My crawl space had a great deal of mold, so Gilbert & Son installed a great deal of sand to fill in low spots and put down a vapor barrier. They were terrific, and an added benefit was that a cough I had had for months cleared up shortly after that. (Apparently, I have a mold allergy.) All the work was done professionally, as promised.
