Basement Mold & Mildew


Mold and mildew microorganisms are everywhere and will grow under certain conditions. An environment that has water (moisture) and organic material (food source) will advance the growth of mold. Mold will continue to grow if a moisture problem is undiscovered or unaddressed. Mold can emit toxic particles that will travel through the air.

Effect of Mold

Excessive exposure to some types of mold can cause or worsen conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and or other allergies. Depending on the amount of exposure, more serious health effects such as fevers and breathing problems can occur.

Prevent Mold Growth in a Basement

The best and most cost effective strategy to managing the growth of mold and mildew is to prevent the intrusion of water and moisture into the basement. One quick and easy step is basement humidity control with the installation of a dehumidifier. Eliminating organic material (food source) or using mold resistant material will help, but the truth of the matter is that there are too many food sources in the basement to prevent mold from growing by eliminating just one.
Mold will eventually grow on all surfaces including mold resistant material. The only effective way to control mold is to control moisture. Mold resistant material is effective only when used in conjunction with proper moisture control.
mold-donotdoRescon Basement Solutions does not provide mold remediation services.  Once the mold situation has been remediated, our basement solutions will help create an environment hostile to mold growth.

“We have been a Rescon client for several years. Yesterday, we noticed a problem with the sump pump. Dillon, an excellent technician, was at our house and had the failed pump replaced within about an hour. Good people, and good customer service.”

“Rescon was amazing! They were extremely clean and efficient. Dillon and his team explained every step of the process, were very courteous, and for such a nosy, messy, dirty job made us feel like they were barely even there. Chris, the owner, came to the job site and once again made sure we were happy. It was also great to see him interact with his team, give guidance, and be helpful rather than just shout orders. Overall a great experience!”
