Identify, Clean, Ventilate, Prevent: The 4 Steps To Winning The War Against Mold

July 24, 2023

If you own a home in Maryland, Delaware of Northern Virginia, you’ve probably waged a battle with mold in your home. It may be a minor skirmish and just requires a little cleanup. Or it may be turning into a major battle, requiring more time and dollars.

At Best Buy Waterproofing, we are on the front lines of the war with mold and water damage in homes. For over three decades, we’ve helped homeowners throughout the area come out victorious in the mold, mildew, and moisture wars.

Here are the four steps to victory in the mold wars.

Identify. First you need to identify the source of the moisture in your basement. Even if you think if have the source identified, it is always a good idea to call in a waterproofing expert as a final quality check.

Clean. Once you have taken care of identifying the source of the issue, you need to clean up the mold. This takes a professional mold remediation crew to make sure that it is properly removed.

Ventilate. Mold, mildew, and moisture are usually found in areas that are not properly ventilated. You will need to make sure that a proper ventilation system is installed in your basement and crawl space.

Prevent. You can identify, clean, and ventilate but in most cases, a properly installed basement waterproofing system, customized to fix the issues specific to your home, is needed. That’s when you need the experience and knowledge of a basement waterproofing company like Best Buy Waterproofing. We guarantee and warranty our system backed by 5-Star customer service.
