MOLD: A Hazard for You and Your Home
Damaging Effects of Mold
Basement and crawl space mold not only look bad, but can make your entire home smell musty. Worst of all, mold in a home has been known to trigger several health problems, including: 

  • Asthma attacks
  • Coughing
  • Severe headaches
  • Cold/Flu-like symptoms
  • Skin irritation and rashes
  • Extreme fatigue

All members of a family are at risk for these conditions when mold is present, but the elderly, children, or persons with weaker immune systems are most susceptible. 
Mold Needs 3 Things to Grow 
1.       Moisture
2.       High humidity levels
3.       Organic materials to feed on

Without all three conditions, mold cannot survive. Our team can eliminate two of the conditions for you by installing a basement waterproofing system or performing crawl space encapsulation.
