Basement Mold Removal VA
Basement Mold Removal Company Virginia
Basements in the Tidewater Region of Virginia are one of the most common hot-spots for mold development. Basements are often damp and tend to suffer from insufficient air circulation. Water seepage through the foundation walls is a common obstacle as well. Once moisture is introduced to the environment, mold can begin to develop. Once mold takes hold in your basement, it can spread quickly due to conducive conditions.
Don’t just live with a moldy basement. Our licensed & certified mold experts can help.
Mastertech of Tidewater’s team of basement mold inspectors and basement mold removal technicians can determine if your basement has a mold problem, identify what caused the mold problem and develop a safe and effective basement mold removal solution. Once we are able to confirm a successful basement cleanup, we will provide moisture control recommendations to ensure that the mold does not return.
Why do I have mold in my Virginia basement?
With the right conditions, basements can be the ideal breeding ground for mold development. Where there is mold, there is an underlying moisture source contributing to the mold growth. Since basements are so vulnerable to moisture buildup, it is no wonder that it is one of the most common areas for mold. Here are some common moisture sources in basements that cause mold:
- High humidity – over 55%
- Water leaking or seeping through foundation walls
- Poor air circulation
- Condensation from ducts
Can basement mold make us sick?
Yes. Some people may have stronger reactions to basement mold than others. This reaction depends on your immune systems, the length of time of exposure and several other factors, but many mold species can negatively affect everyone – even healthy adults. Since many VA basements contain HVAC components like air handlers and duct work, much of the air from your basement is circulated throughout the entire home. This is why we recommend a thorough duct cleaning with an antimicrobial after or as part of every mold removal process.

If you suspect damp conditions in your basement have contributed to mold development, you should contact us today. A trained and certified Mastertech mold inspector can conduct a thorough basement mold inspection and get to the bottom of the problem.
Visual Assessment– Your Mastertech Inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis to determine any conditions that could stimulate mold growth in your basement. We will provide you thorough digital documentation for your records.
Moisture Mapping– Your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your basement to determine where water or moisture could be getting in.

Basement Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold. If mold is confirmed in your basement, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.
Report of Findings– After completing a thorough mold inspection of your basement, your Mastertech mold inspector will compile a clear and concise report that outlines all his/her findings. If necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective basement mold removal in Virginia.
