Molds start to form as a result of just 15% moisture in the home. Many basements are dark and damp, the perfect locations for mold to begin to grow and expand. Identifying the source of the mold often begins with an inspection to locate the area of water seepage in your basement. Then, applying the proper solution to address leakage from the interior or exterior of your home can prevent further damage. If mold has not yet formed, waterproofing your basement is the perfect preventative measure to keep your family safe.
If you notice moisture, dampness, or water in your Pittsburgh area basement or notice a damp, musty smell in your home, contact the experts at Everdry Waterproofing to solve the problem before mold starts to form.
