Everything was Damp
When we started inspecting the basement, we noticed that all the boxes were damp. Within minutes, we discovered mold growth on the walls.
What are the Conducive Conditions
Now that we located the mold growth, in order to treat it effectively, we need to find out what caused it. After measuring the basement with our hygrometer, we determined that high humidity levels was the cause for the mold growth.
Get it All Out
First, we removed all of the belongings and applied MAPS 1. This application targets mold on a cellular level and kills it instantly. After applying the application, we then scrubbed the mold away.
Next, we applied MAPS 2. This application is a patented sealant that encapsulates mold, which renders it harmless and non-allergenic. MAPS 2 is also moisture sensitive and prevents future mold from growing.
Address the Conducive Conditions
In order for MAPS 1 & 2 to work efficiently the conducive condition of high humidity levels must be addressed, so we installed a Sandi-Dry Sedona commercial dehumidifier. These dehumidifiers can effectively cover indoor living spaces over 3000 square feet, making it well-suited for basements and crawl spaces over 40" high. Now the basement will no longer have humidity issues and the risk of dangerous mold growth has been removed.
