Creating A Healthy Home And Challenges We Face Today
Your home should be safe and comfortable, not a place that makes you sick or endangers the stability of your home. People can have air quality problems in any kind of home, new and old.
Many things in your home can cause air quality problems including flooded basements, basements with moisture, humidity, and foundation cracks.
The Basement Environment
Most homeowners seldom think of their basement as much more than a storage area or perhaps a place for the laundry, a workout area or a playroom. An occasional ‘musty’ smell is often overlooked, and therein lies the problem. The vast majority of cellars throughout the United States have water and moisture seeping in through concrete walls and rising up through the floor.
Iron bacteria are carried in the moisture and water that seeps into all basements and provide an ideal growth medium for mold and mildew. Basements with any degree of humidity are responsible for an unpleasant odor that sometimes proves to be a health hazard for anyone with allergies or a sensitive respiratory system.
Removing the water and moisture solves the problem. Missouri Basement can provide a total solution to removing any and all water and moisture from a home. Contact us about a Healthy Home in the greater St. Louis area.
