Evidence of Mold
We equipped our personal protective gear and began inspecting the basement. A few minutes into our inspection, we found mold growth all over the basement, especially on the recliner.
Doesn't Do a Good Job
This white dehumidifier is purchased by many homeowners that are lead to believe that it will control the humidity in their basement. However, as we can see by the mold growth throughout the basement, the dehumidifier did not control the humidity properly.
Mold Abatement Polymer Solutions
After concluding our inspection, we applied an EPA registered antimicrobial solution called MAPS 1. This solution attacks and kills mold on a cellular level.
We then wiped away the mold and applied MAPS 2 - which is a patented sealant that encapsulates the mold. MAPS 2 is also moisture sensitive and will reactivate whenever it gets wet to prevent future mold growth.
Sani Dry XP
Finally, we removed the old dehumidifier and installed a Sani-Dry Sedona commercial grade dehumidifier. These dehumidifiers cost less to run than other dehumidifiers, cover over 3000 square feet, and are energy efficient.
