Basement mold is a common problem homeowners face with an insufficient basement drainage system. This is due to the fact that your basement is beneath the ground and is usually not developed like the rest of your home, and so it acts as the perfect breeding ground for the growth of mold and mildew. Your basement is often used as a storage area where there is little heat.
Unfortunately, your basement is also an area where moisture can build up from condensation forming on plumbing pipes or even may be coming from a leak. Basement mold can actually build up quite a bit if you have a basement without any water mitigation system in place.
Once mold spores start developing in your home, they will keep growing until you treat the origin of the problem. Moldy basements can affect wood, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, cement, carpet, and insulation. Mold removal is very vital for keeping your basement, as well as the rest of your home, safe and healthy to be in.
Prevent Mold From Growing In The Basement
Basement mold can be prevented by having moisture control products in place such as the SafeBasementsTM basement waterproofing systems. Controlling the level of moisture and humidity in your basement will help you to prevent the development of mold.
Basement Dehumidifiers - Dry Out Excess Moisture
SafeBasementsTM waterproofing experts make use of SantaFe dehumidifiers when dealing with high humidity levels in the basement. Excess moisture is the most common problem in basements — either entering from outside sources or being produced inside by the occupants’ activities. The soil around the walls can contain a large amount of moisture from surface water that is seeping down or from a high water table.
