Mold is not covered by our basement waterproofing warranty, but we wanted to give you some information and a link to where you can learn a little more about what causes mold and how to get rid out it.
If you have a waterproofing system in place and you are still getting mold growth in the basement. Chances are you need to look at the air quality in the basement or find an obvious source of water leakage from a plumbing source or something similar to that.
Mold is an unwanted, unpleasant growth that can become a harmful intruder into your home. Mold can grow anywhere with a damp or humid environment. This includes bathrooms, basements, and any areas with water leakage, moisture, or poor ventilation.
To eliminate this household issue, there are several key steps you can take. Make sure that there are no areas that become overly humid
. This includes basements and crawl spaces, where moisture is highest. Be sure to immediately address leaking pipes, roofs, floors, and windows, and to clean the area as soon as the water has been removed.
Remember, if you find mold anywhere in your home, simply cleaning the surface is not a permanent solution. The conditions were right for mold to grow, so to completely remove the issue, you must also fix the source of the problem.
