Since water follows the path of least resistance and gravity also plays a part in that, it is not uncommon for homes with basements to find that the basement is damp enough for mold to activate and colonize, leading to the need for basement mold remediation services. This can occur in both unfinished and finished basements, but the good news is that with quality services, the issue can be resolved and preventative measures taken to keep mold from reappearing.
For basement mold remediation to be effective, it must include both mold removal and a plan of action to create a dry basement. Otherwise, you’ll be calling for mold removal time after time when it returns again due to the damp basement being an accommodating environment for mold to prosper. It is also a good idea to resolve the cause for the dampness so your air conditioner isn’t working as hard to control humidity in your home. You’ll enjoy a longer life from the HVAC system and face fewer repair bills, not to mention lower your utility bill.
