A friend of mine recently went to look at a house with his fiancee. It was a beautiful little home, in an idyllic, countryside setting. Everything looked great – until they visited the finished basement. Once they got down there, they discovered a huge problem with the home – mold. Water damage, mold and mildew had pretty much destroyed any chance of simply moving in and using the space. My friend told me they decided that it would cost too much to fix, and that they would look elsewhere.
Unfortunately, this is a common scenario, and a lot of homes stay on the market longer than they need to because of basement issues. It’s always something you want to be on the lookout for when purchasing a new home. Sometimes, people will go through the motions of having mold removed from their basement when they put it on the market. But, they won’t fix the problem that caused the mold growth in the first place. And, there are a lot of companies that will happily charge for mold removal – knowing they’ll be back to remove it again and again because the water problem remains.
If you really want mold removal in your home, you have to get to the root of the problem.
At Basement Waterproofing, Inc., we will provide you with mold removal. But more importantly, before we do that we’ll offer you a solution that will keep your basement dry for good. There are many reasons why mold grows in the basement of your home. In homes where water is an issue, the basement often is the perfect climate for mold. Dark, damp spaces are where mold, mildew and bacteria thrive. So a basement with a moisture problem is usually home to a whole host of pathogens.
