4 Tips For Keeping a Finished Basement Mold Free

Mold will eventually grow in any and all finished Basements.  Most, a toxic mold.  All "after the fact" attempts such as air scrubbers will eliminate mold from the air but it will keep growing behind the walls etc..
 

Proactive prevention BEFORE finishing is an absolute must and in this video the 4 Tips are to #1 Waterproofing Basement #2 install the best Sump Pump System, #3 clean and seal any existing mold with mold detergent and anti microbial sealant, #4 Install condensation proof mold proof insulation/vapor barrier on all walls. -

 

If your Basement has previously been Finished without a waterproofing system, unfortunately, it will eventually need a proper Basement Waterproofing System.

 

To fully understand why,  Consider an"after the Fact" air scrubber pulling Mold spores toward it, filtering out mold and blowing scrubbed air outside. (blowing out allows drawing to) If due to continuous mold growth there are always mold spores there will always be mold existing in the air and behind the walls that is continuously being drawn to the scrubber to be filtered.  If the cause or the supply of moisture which is feeding the growth of mold is not eliminated there will always be mold.

 

An example of this is:  Consider a foot of water in the basement and a pump pumping it out but simultaneously the same amount of water is getting in.  Thus, the same amount of water will always remain.  The basement will remain flooded.   Make Sense?
