What Are The Signs Of
Mold In Your House?

Unfortunately, mold is a common problem for a home with untreated water damage. Infestations often go undetected inside walls, the basement, or the crawl space. If you suspect a mold problem, here is what to look for:

  1. Breathing problems

    Musty Odor

    A persistent, earthy smell coming from areas of the house can indicate the presence of mold growth.

  2. Sinus infections

    Visible Mold Growth

    Any visible patches, discoloration, or fuzzy growth on walls, ceilings, vents, or floors.

  3. Skin irritation (rash, skin scaling)

    Unexplained Illness

    Frequent sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, or respiratory issues in you or a loved one.

  4. Dry cough or sneezing

    Water Leaks

    Past or ongoing leaks from burst pipes, roof damage, or windows can provide a conducive environment for mold growth.

  5. Fatigue

    High Humidity

    Excessive moisture in the air results in condensation on windows or persistent room dampness.

      The whole experience from the sales representative to the installation team was a great experience. Chase and his crew were very polite, worked really well as a team, and was very particular about the way they left everything at the end of the day. Our Border collie and 3 house cars just loved the attention that they got also. I would recommend The Basement Doctor to anyone who is looking to improve their own basement

      The Basement Doctor has done a ton of excellent work to protect our basement. Anytime I have an issue, they are prompt to respond. We have regular maintenance checks on our sump pumps. Steven Richardson was out yesterday and he was great to work with. He was thorough and professional and just a genuinely nice guy

      We had water in our basement and needed a solution. We received proposals from three companies and, while The Basement Doctor was not the lowest cost, they provided the most comprehensive and detailed analysis/recommendation. I felt very comfortable throughout the process that this was the expertise we needed. I was able to get our job scheduled and completed quickly. Everyone I encountered was courteous and professional. I would recommend!
