As an Indianapolis homeowner, there are few experiences worse than dealing with basement flooding. Since basements are often turned into extra bedrooms, entertainment centers or storage rooms, when they flood they can cause significant damage to furniture and memorabilia in addition to compromising your foundation’s structural integrity.
The problem with basements
Basements are generally not well-ventilated, creating a high-humidity environment that doesn’t get much direct sunlight. Damp basements are a breeding ground for mold, including dangerous varieties such as black mold. Unless you spend a lot of time in your basement, you may not notice mold until it’s already taken a foothold in your walls, ceilings and floor coverings.
