Basements & Mold: a Problem in Many Cleveland Homes
If you live in Cleveland or any of the surrounding areas and you have a basement rather than a crawl space, this is one of the most common places you will encounter mold in your house. This is especially true if your basement is partially or completely underground and not as developed as the rest of the house.
Often left bare and used primarily for storage, Cleveland area basements provide mold with the perfect place to grow – and grow rapidly. This is even more so the case if you have a moisture problem in your basement. Whether from plumbing issues, water seepage because of the slope around your home, a lack of basement waterproofing, or any number of other problems that may be contributing to your home having a humid basement, this dampness will eventually lead to mold growth.
Excess moisture and damp conditions inevitably lead to mold problems in homes in the Cleveland area. This is why it is so important to take proactive measures to keep your basement at a relatively safe humidity level, either by use of dehumidifiers and other means of proper ventilation, or – more importantly - by addressing the source of your moisture problem (e.g. leaking plumbing pipes, slope/grading and improper drainage of rain water, flooding).
If mold is growing in your basement, please contact the Cleveland basement mold removal experts at M.A.D. Cleaning LLC. Our team of certified mold remediation specialists will be able to completely remove the mold from your basement using proper techniques for containment so that the mold does not spread to other parts of your basement or home. DIY mold cleaning tactics typically cause more trouble that it is worth, and you may endanger your health as mold spores spread easily without proper technique, tools, and products. At M.A.D. Cleaning LLC we have years of experience and professional training in basement mold removal in Cleveland and the surrounding areas. You can rely on us to provide you with a thorough assessment of the problem, a complete range of mold remediation services including sanitizing and disinfecting, and solutions for preventing future mold growth in your basement.
Preventing Basement Mold in Cleveland, OH
Upon discovering mold in your basement, first you should find out why there is mold growing in your basement. Find any leaks or contributors of excess moisture. Taking care of this will likely alleviate the mold problem. Here are some tips for preventing basement mold in Cleveland, OH and the surrounding areas:
- Keep the basement dry
- Install proper ventilation for your basement to improve air flow
- Use a basement dehumidifier
- If water accumulates, be sure to address the problem quickly. Mold can start growing in 24-48 hours.
- Check frequently for leaks – plumbing leaks, slab leaks, etc. – and get them fixed immediately
- Check the slope of your property. Ground sloping toward a basement can cause water seepage in the basement. If possible, slope away from the foundation.
- Invest in proper draining for your home, including downspouts and gutters that lead rain water away from the home.
- Invest in basement waterproofing
- Consider finishing the basement; but be sure to address moisture problems first, or you could end up with an even worse mold problem!
