Basement mold can hold up the sale of a home.
Homeowners don't usually notice it until it's pointed out by a building inspector.
And they don't call an inspector until they're getting ready to sell or buy a home. This leads to costly delays.
Basement Mold Inspection
The mold inspection, which will be performed by a mold specialist, can include a visual inspection, moisture readings and mold testing. Testing is not generally recommended as a first step. If there are no visible signs of mold, mold testing may become necessary. Mold testing options include swab and air samples which will identify the types and levels of mold present in Your Basement or home. The most important part of any mold remediation is to locate the source of moisture or humidity and develop a plan to control it.
Once the source of mold is identified, a mold removal plan will be developed and executed, including containment of the work area to control and limit the spread of mold in the house or other contaminants into surrounding areas of your home or building. If you can smell a musty odor or see something that looks like mold, you most likely have a mold problem.
Basement Mold and Basement Mildew Remediation.
A wet or damp basement is a breeding ground for mold. Mold develops within the first 24-48 hours of contact with water. Mold can reproduce rapidly unless steps are taken to dry your basement. If left to multiply, you will find mold growing on your walls and ceilings and will begin to notice a musty odor.
