Whether your basement is a wine cellar, lounge area or abandoned storage location, you have likely dealt with mold there before. Chances are you have tried many different techniques to prevent mold in your basement. One of the most highly recommended is to reduce moisture. But, how do you pull this off? Basements are, after all, damp and dark by nature.

Easy steps include wiping up all spills and leaks as soon as possible and using a humidifier that suits the square footage of the space. A more expensive solution is adding a waterproofing coat to the walls to make them damp-proof and therefore mostly immune to mold.

After successful mold remediation, eliminating moisture as much as possible helps to prevent mold from returning.
