Reduce the Risk of Mold

Published on October 1st, 2021

Mold is a fungus that is well-known for growing inside and outside of homes. Mold loves to grow in damp, warm, and moist areas that can help it quickly reproduce and spread. A common place that mold can be found growing in is the basement of a home. Since a basement is placed into the ground and can easily be accessed by water, it provides the optimal conditions for mold and other bacteria to grow in. Exposure to mold creates a host of health problems for the occupants of the home, especially if anyone in the home suffers from a chronic lung disease, asthma, or has a serious allergy to mold. An effective way to help prevent mold from growing in a home is with basement waterproofing in Massachusetts.

Potential Moisture Removal Tactics

Here at Basement Technologies, we can determine the right method of preventing water from accumulating in the lower level of a home. Industrial sealants can be used to seal the concrete walls of a basement to prevent moisture from gathering or water leaking through. In homes that experience high humidity, dehumidifiers can draw the moisture out of the air to help regulate the temperature in the home. By removing the humidity, a homeowner can save money on their utility bill by reducing how hard their HVAC system works. Sump pumps can be beneficial in homes that are in high-risk flooding areas to prevent water from overflowing. By using one of these methods, it removes the elements that promote the growth of mold and mildew. As an added bonus, with a reduction of moisture, it can help prevent cracks from forming in the walls of the basement that can lead to severe damage to the foundation of the home.
