Water damage is the main cause of mold growth and musty odor in basements. Mold produces spores which not only initiate new mold growth on wet organic materials but also compromises the air quality in the building. Mold removal and remediation are very expensive. Apart from mold growth, water damage can also lead to wood rot and insect infestation. Annually, water causes thousands of dollars worth of damage by damaging wood furniture, upholstery, electronics and household appliances in finished basements when they get flooded. And we are here for you if you have such problems! All what you need is to call us! Tiptop Restoration is professional in this way of business.
The obvious causes of water damage in basements are water from heavy rainfall or melting snow if it collects near the foundation and fill the drains, sewage backup, rain water through foundation cracks and basement windows. While these are fairly easy to detect, enabling a quick repair before maximum damage occurs, water damage due to moisture behind finished basement walls that are insulated with fiberglass and poor grading around foundation walls are not so obvious. It is therefore possible to discover mold growth in the basement before knowing the source of moisture.
