Mold In Basement
Updated: Jul 30, 2019
Mold is a living organism by-product of standing water or excessive moisture interacting with just about any surface. While there are approximately 3,000 types of mold, only a few of them are dangerous to us.
Mold is most often detected by both its noxious smell and it comes in all shapes and sizes. Illness among family members who exhibit persistent prolonged symptoms similar to those expressed by colds and flu can also raise homeowner suspicions. Young, elderly, and allergic residents can be particularly susceptible to mold related illness. The toxic and odorous nature of mold requires that it should be taken very seriously.
In order to effectively remove mold problems, it is essential that all sources of standing wetness and excessive moisture be addressed. You can properly install, either an interior or exterior basement waterproofing system that should result in a mold protected home for most residents.
Outbreaks of mold, less than 10 square feet, can be handled by applying a detergent like dawn with bleach applied with a medium bristle brush and plenty of rubbing. Make sure to wear a breathing mask and rubber gloves while doing this work.
