  • Since water leakage is the leading cause of mold, prevent water from having a chance to come into your basement or crawl space by having a waterproofing solution.
  • Reduce the humidity levels in your downstairs and dry out your basement. Installing a dehumidifier is a great way to do this.
  • Replace any mold ridden materials with mold-resistance products. 
  • Check all the pipes in your basement and crawl spaces to ensure there is no water seeping through.
  • If you have a bathroom in your basement, make sure there is a vent fan to vent out humid air to the outdoors.
