Basement Moisture and Mold
If visible mold is present in your basement, the first step is to identify where the excess moisture is coming from. If not handled fast, mold in the basement can lead to rot, structural damage, damage to contents, and a variety of health problems like allergic reactions.
Main causes of excessive basement moisture:
- Leaking pipes
- Leaking plumbing drains
- Lack of proper foundation waterproofing and drainage
- Foundation cracks
- Improper grading around structure causing water to run towards structure
- Lack of or poor maintenance of roof drainage systems/gutters and downspouts
- Blocked or broken HVAC condensate drains.
Once the problem(s) are identified repairs can begin. AdvantaClean of the Triad will be there to assist you in the repair and cleanup.
