In your quest to protect your home from avoidable issues, do not forget to take preventative measures against mold growth in your basement. One of the best ways to prevent mold in your basement is to keep your crawl spaces covered.
Keep Water Vapor Outside Where It Belongs
When you use polyethylene plastic to cover basement crawl spaces, you make it so that water vapor from any nearby soil doesn’t infiltrate your home. This is an especially important step if there is any dirt or exposed concrete in your basement. Should water vapor find its way inside your home, it can trigger mold growth.
Work with a mold remediation company to protect your basement. There’s no need to deal with an unnecessary mold problem when prevention can be so simple.
