Basement Mold Removal - Mold Removal Questions
1.00 Mold in basement>10 sq ft: can we just remove paneling, or need to have it tested first? How much $$$?

Q. Areas of mold (black and some gray) in a basement that flooded three times this spring. We're working to fix the water problem. We're planning to remodel anyway, so the old paneling isn't a big loss, but I don't want to release tons of mold spores into the air if they're toxic. My inclination is to hire an independent testing lab, find out what type of mold we have, then use their remediation plan to hire a contractor to deal with it. Are we likely to have to clean it up first and THEN remove the damaged areas? Or is removal itself a viable means of solving the problem? Can a regular contractor do this? How much should I expect the testing to cost? If we're not suffering from any clearly related physical problems now (it's been there for months, I'd guess), will we need to vacate the house while remediation takes place? My husband wants to just hire a regular demolition crew to pull the paneling out, but I'm not comfortable going that route. Informed opinions appreciated.

A. We bought a home in which mold was detected - actually, the sellers kept something in front of a gaping, oozing black hole! the mold tested to be the most deadly black mold. i would not do a lowe's test - given the dangers, I agree with you that you need a mold remediation company to test and make a proposal. Our cost was 1100 for testing and remediation, including cleaning of all the house ducts and not including replacing drywall. i have to say the mold remediation folks who tore out the drywall didn't even use masks. I don't know if this is a lack of respect for their workers or because even the deadly black mold is not a huge problem. I will say our regular contractor - who fixed the drywall - would have nothing to do with removing the moldy wall. We did not clean the wall before it was removed.

1.00 Our basement has what I think is white mold growing in the rafters, any advice on removal by ourselves?

Q. We don't want to hire someone as we don't have a lot of money. Our basement does leak and this is the second summer we have had troubles with white mold. From what I've read I gather it isn't as toxic as the 'black' mold we all hear about on the news, but I'm still worried about my family's health. I want to resolve this asap. Any advice is most welcome.

A. Wipe it down with bleach water solution.On a large area put it in a pump up sprayer and mist it on.Don't get too worked up about it. It's not like we haven't been surviving it for years.

1.00 Have I Got damp?

Q. My walls seem dry and so does the floor/carpet but.... we keep getting a green mould in the wardrobes and an unpleasant smell. The room just seems damp!! I Have tried the manual moister removal boxes which have collected quite a lot of water over the last two weeks. Any ideas anyone before I have to splash(no pun intended) out on an expert. Many Thanks

A. It could be coming from your crawl space or basement. If your basement is wet so will be your house. Same as your crawl space, it has to be dry and the floor joists have to be at least 36" from the ground with a a plastic and pea gravel cover to absorb the moisture. I hope this helps.

1.00 Remove baseboards for basement flooding?

Q. We recently had flooding in our basement due to a backup from our kitchen / sewer drain. We have cleaned the floors, walls and baseboards and also pulled up the carpet. Do we need to replace the baseboards as well?

A. Well that really depends on what type of baseboards they are. All the sheetrock is probably still wet. I would suggest pulling off the baseboards and cutting a few inches of the sheetrock out (just enough so that when you put baseboard back on it will cover the missing rock) and putting some fans on the studs behind. If you don't get this dry you will have mold. Mold doesn't hurt everyone, but it will keep growing back there behind that wall and will cause major problems down the road. The best thing you could do would be to call a disaster restoration company in your area. If your not wanting to involve your insurance company then they could get really expensive. You could at least have them just check it out for you. Explain your situation to them and they may be kind enough to check everything out with their moisture meters and let you know what to do above what you have already done. Good luck!

1.00 Does anyone know addresses or phone numbers of companies who would be willing to sponsor a charity?

Q. I have started a seperate division of my contracting company that would provide services to low income families in order to better our neighborhood and help keep people safe (removal of lead pain, fixing roofs, removing mold and asbestos, etc.). Does anyone know any addresses or phone numbers of corporate or individual sponsors who my be willing to help fund us?

A. You need to check businesses in your area. Also call the tv stations and get the word out. Churches too.

1.00 Concerns over mold in home.?

Q. We signed a lease on a home to move in. We are trying to get the place in livable, cleaning, etc. They had dogs and there are hairs all over the place. Each and everytime I am in the house I get a very sore throat. Husband gets a headache. I was wondering if there could be a mold problem so we bought prolab kits. One downstairs had a few small mold spores and the ones upstairs just one. I don't want to overreact just concerned. We are going to clean out ducts and shampoo carpets but a company specializing in pet odor removal. The house is only 4 years old. What could the sore throat be from? Thanks.

A.

Basement Mold Removal

 Mold Removal - Basement Mold Removal Because of its lack of adequate natural ventilation systems, the basement provides fertile grounds for the growth off mold spores. There is very little heat in the basement, and conditions are usually dark and moist. Water from leaky pipes or inadequately waterproofed walls can cause mold spores to be attracted and to begin their breeding and infestation process. Mold in a basement can cover all surfaces of the basement like the walls, floors, ceilings etc.

 mold removal company in West Palm Beach, Florida Of all the places where mold can fester and grow, the basement is the most dangerous. This is because the spores can easily find their way out of the basement and into the main house above through the vents and ducts of the HVAC system in the basement. Once inside the main house, these spores will feely disperse into the air, and begin to settle down in different parts of the house, causing severe Asthma and other respiratory illnesses. To combat mold and mildew in your basement, make sure there are sufficient artificial ventilation systems in place like air conditioners and ceiling fans. Make sure there is no dampness in the basement -- get leaky pipes fixed immediately.

If you notice mold in the basement, don't try to scrub off the spores or wash them with detergent. Scrubbing only shakes the spores free, and detergents are completely useless on mold and mildew.
