Tri-State Total Basement Finishing Case Studies: Mold and Moisture Repair in Randolph, NJ

Monday, May 11th, 2015 by Reina Wardlow

Challenge

Moisture and Mold are common in basements, many times we don't live there so we do not think twice about it.  As warm air rises in the home, new air is sucked in through the lower level, this air replacement effect means that even if you are not in the basement of your home, you are effected by the basement air.  Mold spores will circulate through the home, moisture created in the basement will increase as it is drawn into the upper levels of the floor.  

 

Solution

Our home owner had a number of pressing concerns in his basement, there were pools of water in the basement, but even more disturbing:  the colonies of MOLD.  Either problem were cause enough for concern on their own, but together, our owner knew something had to be done to correct the problems.  

The first thing our home owner was advised was to install a SaniDry Air System, this is a powerful and effective dehumidifier - big enough to dry the air and automatically drains the water out of a hose, so you never have to empy it, like a conventional dehumidifier.  The SaniDry XP will take 10 times the water out of the air as a typical dehumidifier, yet uses the same energy.  Mold is a major concern for many basements in our area, and the basement is the perfect environment for this musty smelling fungi to thrive.  SaniDry will keep your basement below 50% relative humidity, and lowering your relative humidity, reducing the chances of mold growing in your basement. 

The materials used by Total Basement Finishing are completely unaffected by moisture or water, and are 100% guarenteed by the manufacturer.
