Mold on wood in your basement or crawl space doesn't just look bad, it can also release mold spores into the air you and your family breathes. This mold can lead to: headaches, fatigue, breathing problems, respiratory infections, sinus infections, asthma attacks, skin irritation, rashes, and many other medical conditions you and your loved ones shouldn't have to deal with. This moldy air doesn't just effect your family, but it can also have an effect on your pets! They breathe the same air that you do! This is why it's so important to make sure that there isn't any way for mold to grow inside your basement or crawl space.
Mold wood requires moisture, humidity, and organic materials to live. So, if you have a basement without a waterproofing system or a crawl space which hasn't been encapsulated, you're probably going to notice the development of hazardous mold and bacteria. When you contact Bix Basement Systems for mold prevention, we will send a crew of trained professionals to your home who will thoroughly investigate the issue to determine what plan of action will be best. We will then install a waterproofing or encapsulation system, and make sure that the mold never comes back to cause problems ever again!
Basement and Crawl Space Mold
As mentioned above, basement and crawl space mold develops whenever there is moisture, humidity, and organic material in the lowest level of your home. You might notice a musty smell - similar to dirty socks - which seems to come up from your basement or crawl space. Also, you might actually be able to see the mold growing on the floor, wall, or on other surfaces. This mold is ugly and will damage anything that it grows on.
Bix Basement Systems can come to your home and take a look at the problem. We will determine where the moisture and humidity is coming in, and we will be sure that we stop the problem at its source. We can then install dehumidifiers, crawl space liners, and waterproofing systems to make sure that this area underneath your home is free from any moisture or humidity. If just one "ingredient" in the recipe for mold is missing, it won't be able to grow.
Protecting your basement and crawl space from mold is important. If you ever decide to put your home on the market, prospective buyers will be pleased to know that you took care of the basement or crawl space mold problem once and for all so they won't need to worry about it. This can be a huge selling point!
