An untreated leaky basement can damage your home and your family’s health if it goes unchecked for a long time. Subterranean water issues have existed for as long as people have had basements. Cracks in the walls or floors, joints in the walls and floors, exposed vents, poorly-fitting doors, and windows are ways that water enters a basement. Considering that concrete is a porous substance, moisture is constantly a problem in unfinished basements and crawl spaces.
Mold is Growing
Though you may not see the mold as it is most likely well disguised. Mold is most typically identified by its musty odor. Decay occurs due to a lack of oxygen, humidity, moisture, and dust. Mold can cause significant health problems, especially in persons with weakened immune systems. Mold symptoms include asthma, skin rashes, and sinusitis. Because of the health risks involved, professionals should perform thorough mold examination and removal. Mold testing is typically unnecessary because the CPC does not discriminate against mold identification, and all molds pose health hazards. Mold identification, treatment, and prevention are critical tasks.
