Basement Mold Testing
Before Spending On Basement Mold Removal, Do A Basement Mold Test!
Mold in a basement that is not regularly used will probably go unnoticed for a long time. If your family experiences allergy symptoms you may consider testing your basement for mold.

Mold in the basement thrives on some of the building materials such as the drywall, wood and insulation.
Some of the sources of moisture in the basement include leaking pipes and intrusion of ground water into the basement through cracks in the walls. This moisture contribute to mold growing in the basement.

means you have a basement mold problem. Areas where there are signs of water damage or leaks are likely spots for mold growth.
