Mold and Your Health

Mold Affects Your Families Health

​A damp basement is a nuisance but it also poses serious health threats. It’s not just cleaning up a little water, cleaning a damp basement correctly calls for many safety prevention methods. That is why Michigan Basement handles it for you, to keep you and your family healthy and safe.

Small leaks, a flood, appliance issues all can cause water to enter your basement. Even if you don’t experience a large flood any water is bad for your basement.


Signs You Could Have Moisture:

  • Moldy, mildew scent
  • Air that feels heavy
  • A ring of dampness near the bottom of concrete walls


If mold or mildew is present your family could be experiencing:

  • Cold or flu like symptoms
  • Respiratory problems
  • Allergic reactions
  • Asthma attacks
  • Fungal infections


The two main problems that arise with moisture in the basement are:


  • Mold: a fungus that grows from spores in the air. Many varieties can grow in a moist basement and can vary in color and odor.
  • Mildew: a type of mold that grows on damp surfaces. It may or may not be visible to the naked eye.


Most basements will experience moisture at some point, keeping this in mind your basement should be prepared. Keeping all electrical wires dry and high off the ground is important. Always keep things organized so when something does happen, you can be ready.


If you have moisture in your basement or experience any of the symptoms call us today!


(P.S) If you’re looking to buy a new home always get a thorough inspection for any mold or asbestos.
