For many homeowners, it’s the dreaded “M” word. Mold. Having mold inside you house creates an unhealthy environment, and prolonged exposure can cause upper respiratory infections, asthma, coughing, wheezing, and skin and eye irritation. Basements are particularly susceptible to mold, due to the dark, damp, or humid conditions that often exist there. Even if it seems like it would be contained down there, a moldy basement does affect the atmosphere of the rest of the house. Plus, selling your house in the future would be almost impossible with a moldy basement.
If you catch your mold colony while it’s still small, it is possible to try to deal with your moldy basement yourself. However, if you don’t also fix the conditions that led to the mold growth in the first place, then it will grow right back! So, if you don’t feel completely confident in your mold killing skills, then you might want to call a professional before you waste your time and money.
