Creating a Healthy Home
All homes should be safe and comfortable, not a place that makes families sick or endangers the stability of the home. People can have air quality problems in any kind of home, new and old.
Many things in your home can cause air quality problems including flooded basements, basement with moisture, humidity, and foundation cracks.
Basements Contribution to a Healthy Home
Most homeowners seldom think of their basement as much more than a storage area or perhaps a place for the laundry, a workout area or a playroom. An occasional ‘musty’ smell is often overlooked, and therein lays the problem. The vast majority of cellars throughout the United States have water and moisture seeping in through concrete walls and rising up through the floor.
Iron bacteria are carried in the moisture and water that seeps into all basements and provide an ideal growth medium for mold and mildew. Basements with any degree of humidity are responsible for an unpleasant odor that sometimes proves to be a health hazard for anyone with allergies or a sensitive respiratory system.
