Mold can grow behind the walls in basements and cause significant damage.
Musty odors are typically the first sign of a moisture problem in the basement. While mold is common in most finished or unfinished basements, foundation leaks, flooding, and plumbing leaks can all put you at greater risk of a basement mold problem.

When water enters your basement, regardless of how it got in, there's a potential for mold to grow. If your basement is finished, any organic materials like wood framing, sheetrock, insulation, and carpeting create a breeding ground for mold.
Because air from the basement often escapes into the upper living spaces of the home, basement mold can contribute to health problems like respiratory illnesses and worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. The only way to keep mold issues in the basement under control is to keep moisture levels low and prevent water intrusion with proper waterproofing and ventilation.
When you contact us for basement mold cleanup and remediation, our trained and certified technicians will conduct a thorough inspection to determine the source of the water or moisture issues in your basement. We then remove all mold-damaged materials, dry out the basement, and thoroughly clean all surfaces. Once the basement has been dried and cleaned, it is recommended that a waterproofing system is installed - this may include a french drain, a sump pump, and a dehumidifier. These solutions will help prevent future mold issues in your basement.
