Mold & Allergen Treatment
Mold and allergens in your basement is a problem that requires attention. Mold can be harmful or harmless, but that depends on the type of mold you have and where it is growing. A basement or crawl space is not the environment to leave mold growing. Mold spores, allergens, and different bacteria can have a tremendous impact on your health. They may be the underlying cause of the numerous poor health symptoms you are experiencing, and could also be triggered to those who suffer from allergies or asthma. The Basement Doctor™ takes the proper steps when providing mold removal, limiting the effects of mold, allergens, and other pathogens in your home. These steps include: cleaning and disinfecting, sealing damp walls, installing a mechanical filtration and dehumidification device, and providing you with a bio maintenance system. The Basement Doctor™ is proud to use The Anabec System, The Basement Doctor™ Epoxy wall coatings, and SantaFe™ dehumidifiers.
The initial step is to immediately clean, disinfect, and kill mold and other pathogens using Anabec™, a microbial barrier product that is designed for application on building surfaces including wood fibers, brick, block, and unfinished drywall to name a few. Utilizing Nano-technology, the Anabec™ product allows active ingredients in its patented formula to penetrate a material's surface and resists moisture, mold, and mildew growth. The Basement Doctor™ has used this product to clean mold, treat mold, and prevent mold and moisture issues associated with wet crawl spaces and leaky basements.
The Basement Doctor™ Epoxy is the next step in the mold remediation and mitigation process. Our epoxy wall coating product contains a mold inhibitor, and when applied properly to a foundation wall, it will provide a strong, beautiful finish. The coating provides superior mold and mildew resistance. It is designed to not peel or blister, and can be washed or scrubbed. With its tough epoxy formulation, this is a fast drying wall coating. In most cases, it can be applied in just a single day. The product comes in two standard color choices - white or grey.
