Something mold, something new

Moldy basement? I've got a guy for you.

Has a basement corner turned into a black abyss? Don't panic. Mold is a normal part of our lives and our bodies are designed to tolerate it in small amounts. But if your basement has a plethora of mold, check with a professional.

A client of mine recently used AdvantaClean and Darrin Fracesconi paid a visit to the home. Luckily for the homeowner, the mold wasn't an issue and Darrin made that clear. He wasn't trying to sell them a service they didn't need. I love contractors who are honest.

He advised the client to seal their basement walls and the issue should be taken care of. The estimate was free and saved the family some stress.

Tackle mold in three steps:

  1. Unclog gutters. This keeps water flowing away from the house. Mold HAS to have moisture to grow.
  2. Run a dehumidifier. This keeps moisture at a decent leve.
  3. Use bleach or borax to clean. For mild mold problems, you can clean the mold with these regular household cleaners.
