Many homeowners have not taken the time or made the effort to finish out their basements, and unfinished basements often are not waterproofed or sealed. This creates a rather damp, dark environment that is ideal for mold growth. If you have found mold growth in your basement, you may be wondering if you need to schedule mold remediation. Some homeowners in Indianapolis may not view mold as a threat if it is not in a prime living area of their home. Others may have no plans to finish out the basement and may not understand that mold could spread to other areas.
