Mold is ugly, potentially harmful and almost always present in a wet basement. No matter how much time is spent cleaning and scouring, if you have a wet basement you have a need for basement waterproofing.
Mold starts by mold spores that float through the air and eventually land on a hard surface, typically a wall or the floor. When the mold spore lands in a well-ventilated, dry, cool area, it simply dies. However, when a mold spore ends up in a location that is stuffy, moist and warm – as many basements are – the spore sinks its teeth in and begins to grow. Basement waterproofing is essential to keeping mold at bay for this very reason.
Once mold begins to grow in a wet basement, it will thrive until the moisture problem has been resolved, usually through basement waterproofing techniques. Mold can be harmful, and potentially fatal, when it enters the nasal passages and makes its way to your lungs. Mold-infested homes typically lead to what appear to be symptoms of a traditional cold or allergy – runny eyes and nose, cough, chest congestion – but are really signs of a much larger problem in the home.
