Your basement is one the most common places to find mold in your home. Basements are notoriously damp and have poor air circulation, not to mention they present a high risk of water seepage through your foundation walls. Once mold takes hold in your basement, it can spread quickly due to conducive conditions.

Once your basement is clean and safe, we’ll make recommendations for preventing mold from returning in the future. If you detect signs of mold development in your basement, call now.

Basements provide perfect conditions for mold growth and continuous development. Excess moisture is one of the main causes – usually from high humidity or water leakage into the basement. Here are some of the more common causes for mold in your basements:
Yes. Some people may have stronger reactions to basement mold than others. This reaction depends on your immune systems, the length of time of exposure and several other factors, but many mold species can negatively affect everyone – even healthy adults. Since many basements contain HVAC components like air handlers and duct work, much of the air from your basement is circulated throughout the entire home. This is why we recommend a thorough duct cleaning with an antimicrobial after or as part of every mold removal process.
Visual Assessment– Your inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis to determine any conditions that could stimulate mold growth in your basement. We will provide you thorough digital documentation for your records.
Moisture Mapping– Your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your basement to determine where water or moisture could be getting in.
Moisture Meters: Moisture meters allow us to read the moisture content of building materials in your basement. Moisture locked within porous building materials like foundation walls can go unnoticed for a long time.
Thermal Imaging: Your mold inspector will be taking advantage of the temperature difference between wet and dry materials. Thermal imaging will allow your inspector to clearly identify all wet areas and paint a picture of the mold spread.
Basement Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold. If mold is confirmed in your basement, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.
Report of Findings– After completing your basement mold inspection, your inspector will compile a clear and concise report that outlines all his/her findings. If deemed necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective basement mold removal.
The basement mold removal professionals at Lamunyon Restoration will specifically develop the most efficient and safe basement mold removal scope of work to ensure the most thorough and successful clean up of your property.
