Basement Mold Removal, Cleaning, & Prevention with Anabec
Having mold in a basement can cause a lot of different health problems from asthma to respiratory problems. Mold is also a very common allergy and can cause severe reactions. Eliminating basement moisture prevents mold from growing, and in order to solve a mold problem, it's important to find the source.
At Waters Basement Services, our first step in a basement assessment is to determine the source of the water or moisture that caused the mold growth to begin. Porous building materials are the largest holders of microbial contamination and typically the repository for water intrusion. If products have any organic materials, then this environment will become a reasonable environment for mold, mildew, dust mites, and rot.
Materials like paint, drywall, boxes, cloth, and most other common building materials have some organic composition and are vulnerable to these types of damage. Many people think they can just paint over moldy surfaces. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel. Additionally, be wary of absorbent basement wall materials like insulation that can absorb moisture and hold water. The key to solving a mold problem is stopping the source of water or moisture.
We spray Anabec, a mold inhibitor, to remove the food source that causes mold. Waters Basement Services uses Anabec - the right solution to mold removal, cleaning, and prevention. Anabec cleaning solution is formulated to provide a surfactant that removes the organic debris from the materials being treated. Anabec removes the food source and is designed to treat both porous and non-porous surfaces. Anabec recovers and protects building materials. Waters Basement Services sprays Anabec on effective areas to remove the food source and protect building materials.
The key to solving mold issues is complete removal and then prevention of future moisture problems. Give us a call today if you're having mold issues in your basement and we'll come to take care of it! Call us at (585) 765-3369.
