Result of Water Seepage: Mold, Mildew, and a Musty Odor
Mold only needs 20% moisture to grow. If you see mold, mildew, or smell a musty odor, chances are that’s only 10% of the total mold in your basement!
Facts About Mold

- Mold and mildew are living, breathing organisms that grow and multiply anywhere there is excessive moisture
- Mold and mildew can grow in the walls, carpeting, furniture, or anywhere else it can find a food source
- Mold is extremely hazardous to the health of your family, and should be dealt with immediately
Stopping Mold at Its Source
As part of our basement waterproofing services, Everdry Waterproofing will locate and remove any sources of basement mold. Without water and dampness to grow, the mold will dry up die. As long as the source of moisture does not come back, neither will the mold.
Complete waterproofing will stop mold from growing back or ever appearing in the first place. If your basement hasn’t been waterproofed yet, explore our basement waterproofing options online.
One common issue is when the basement foundation is cracked or damaged, which lets water seep in that allows mold to thrive. Our high-pressure foundation crack injections can fix these problems quickly and easily. In some extreme cases, the foundation is too damaged for repair, and a foundation replacement is necessary.
