Basement Solutions provides mold and mildew solutions for the dangers that they can cause to your home or small business.

Mold can be found almost anywhere there is moisture. If you have a mold problem, you have a moisture problem. If your home is damp, mold can grow on wood floors, carpets, tile grout, drywall, wood doors and trim, wood furniture, paper and more.

All mold can cause health problems in both humans and pets from the seemingly harmless white, to the coveted black. While not all molds produce mycotoxins which can cause neurological problems over time, even non-toxic molds can cause allergic reactions, asthma attacks and other respiratory complications.

Solutions

If you see mold in your basement, you may have an undiscovered or unaddressed water problem. Our waterproofing solutions significantly reduce or eradicate mold by eliminating the water problem causing it. Our waterproofing experts will identify the source of the moisture and utilize an environmentally friendly, indoor water management process such as Dry Ice Blasting or spray and wash with chemicals and a protective sealant. An exterior waterproofing system is also typically installed that will fix the water problem and prevent additional mold growth in the future.
