Mold Prevention and Remediation
Basement Solutions provides much more than basement waterproofing and foundation repair services. One of our most commonly requested services is mold remediation and removal. Basement waterproofing and foundation repairs are essential to prevent mold from growing on your basement.
However, there are additional things that can be done to reduce the chance of growing mold and decrease the amount of indoor pollutants on your basement or places with poor ventilation in your home.
Inadequate ventilation in a home can increase indoor air pollution levels, including mold, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Those pollutant levels rise in a poorly ventilated home because not enough outdoor air is making its way into a home to dilute the emissions from indoor sources of pollution. In addition, in a poorly ventilated home, indoor air pollutants are not being carried out of the home, leaving the pollutants to linger and potentially putting the health of the home resident’s at risk.
Outdoor air during the winter can protect a home’s inhabitants from the immediate effects on indoor air pollution. Including irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, as well as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Long term effects of prolonged exposure to indoor air pollution can include respiratory disease, heart disease and cancer. But homeowners who want to increase outdoor air infiltration in their homes do not have to open the windows even when temperatures dip. A simple inspection of mechanical ventilation systems may be the only step to ensure good air quality during the winter.
Homeowners should ensure that all repairs are made prior to the start of the winter. Each basement and home is unique. Let the experts at Basement Solutions assess your individual situation and provide you with ample and affordable options.
Basement Solutions has a solution that is just for you and your budget. From simple ones such as installing a ventilation fan, to more complex work such as installing a fully integrated HUMIDEX system.
