A finished basement is a welcome addition to any home. If well-designed, a basement can serve as an extra living space away from the hustle and bustle of the main floor, and it can also raise your property value when you are ready to sell.
So, you have mold in your basement? What comes first? Well you should always be sure that it is mold you are looking at. Basement mold typically looks a black and white color. Also may look fuzzy or raised on the surface of the walls.
Because of the dampness, and the fact that basements are used for storage they present one of the biggest challenges in air quality control in your home.
Many first time home buyers aren’t aware of the humidity in their new basement. Basements are generally built either partially or completely into the ground. This makes them extremely vulnerable to moisture.
