Mold Removal Is a Priority
Mold Causes Damage to Property
Mold, at the very least, can damage or even destroy “host” materials where it takes hold. Host materials include all organic matter – wood, paper, paint, wool, leather; much of the stuff that a home or building is built with or filled with.
Mold also causes a foul smell that can permeate your living space. But these irritations and inconveniences are minor compared to mold’s potential to cause health problems.
Mold Negatively Affects Your Health
Most mold-related ailments are caused by inhaling mold spores, the microscopic organisms that are dispersed into the air wherever mold is present. If you can smell mold, it’s a sure bet that you are inhaling mold spores. Exposure to mold – whether by inhalation or contact – can cause a wide range of physical ailments, from mild skin or respiratory irritation to asthma and severe allergic reactions.
Because of the many health issues associated with mold, it’s important to make mold removal a priority whenever mold is detected. Because of the many health problems associated with mold, it can be difficult or impossible to sell a house or commercial property with mold issues.

Diagnosing a Mold Problem
If you see signs of mold in your home, church, school, or commercial building, it’s wise to schedule an inspection from a mold abatement contractor in your area. Check here to find your closest NORMI or MICRO certified ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing dealer.
There are three main questions we’ll help you answer and address if you have mold in your house:
- How extensive is the mold damage and how will it be removed? – In some cases, mold can be removed from a surface, using proven cleaning and disinfecting techniques. But in other cases, mold can damage materials, necessitating their removal and replacement. A mold inspection should include a recommendation about mold removal and about repairs that will be required after mold-damaged materials are removed.
- What caused the mold? – If there is mold present, it’s important to identify the conditions that caused mold to take hold. Mold requires moisture, an organic food source, and oxygen. Places that remain dry are unlikely to attract mold. But damp areas – like basements and crawlspaces – can provide mold-friendly conditions. A certified ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing mold expert will be able to explain why you have a mold problem.
- What repairs and/or improvements are necessary to make sure the mold won’t return? – ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing specializes in mold removal (also known as mold remediation) and we offer property owners in our service areas a free mold inspection. As a follow-up to this mold inspection, we will explain the best way to clean or remove the mold, and provide a cost estimate for mold remediation.
What Should a Mold Inspection Provide You With?
A mold inspection should provide you with answers to all of the above questions:
- A determination of how extensive the mold damage is and how to remove it – the answer to question #1. During our free mold inspection, our specialist will work with you to uncover the extent of the mold infestation and explain how ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing will remove the mold. In some cases, mold can be removed by first killing the infestation and cleaning the dead mold from the surface. In other cases, it may be necessary to remove the wallboard, wood, or other material where the mold has taken hold. These factors will determine the cost of mold removal.
- Our certified specialist will also uncover what caused the mold in your house – the answer to question #2. This is where our being a crawlspace and basement water and moisture expert will be to your benefit. As air rises in a building, it brings moisture with it. Solving the problem in the crawlspace or basement will lower the moisture content in your entire home, church, or building.
- A plan for necessary repairs or improvements – the answer to question #3. This depends on how widespread the mold damage is. If the damage is restricted to some moldy joists or bays in the crawlspace, ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing may be able to simply kill and clean the moldy areas. If the mold necessitates the removal of drywall, studs, sheathing, or other structural elements, more extensive repairs will be needed.
Rest assured, we’ll be there with you the entire way to make sure the mold is remediated, and the source of moisture is removed.
