Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?

 

It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 

 

Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.

They were a life saver when our basement was flooded. They drained the water for us and we haven't had any problems with the pump they installed. The workers were hard working and knew exactly what to do. They finished sooner than expected and were a great group of guys to have come out.

Everything went very well once a schedule was agreed upon. The work was completed in the 2 day time frame that was outlined in their proposal. The only issue I had after the work was complete was that the farm sink and appliances in the basement were not reconnected and put back in their original position. Not a big problem, but it should have been addressed as their moving out of the work space was part of the planned job. It was easier for me to reconnect the plumbing and move the appliances back into position rather than call back and make arrangements for a return trip and another day off of work for me.

All in all, I'm very happy with their work, the price and I would call them again for future work.

After a very heavy rain, my 100 year old basement was FULL of water. After trying to shop-vac it out for hours and hours, I was panicking because I'm from the suburbs of Atlanta, and a flooded basement is regarded as a fairly major debacle there. I referred to Angie's list for

's contact information and he promptly answered my call late on a Friday afternoon. He then made plans to come check out my issue the following day... On a Saturday at 8:00 in the morning. He arrived promptly and went on to tell me that a certain amount of moisture is to be expected in a house like mine and that while there are a number of measures I could take to attempt to prevent the issue, that they would be very expensive and not a guarantee. In other words, he made a special trip on a Saturday to reassure a stranger that they don't have a $20,000 problem.. for free. If I EVER have an issue in that basement again, he will be the first person I call. In my opinion, integrity and honesty are second to none when people are working your home, and
