Why Is There Mold In My Basement?

The likely culprit behind your basement having mold is that it wasn't adequately protected against moisture and humidity. Most basements are constantly under threat from water intrusion and have poor ventilation. When this moisture and bad air combine with North Carolina's high heat and humidity, you have the perfect breeding ground for mold.

Dry Otter’s Lasting Solutions For Basement Mold

Removing mold from your basement is not a DIY job. It takes the right tools and experience to remove mold, and keep it from coming back. Dry Otter has lasting solutions for removing mold, such as:

Dry Otter's mold remediation is individualized to your unique problem. Our process covers everything; we'll not only remove mold, but also identify the source of moisture in your basement that caused mold growth. Because without finding the source, you're just inviting mold to come back.
Installing a dehumidifier in your basement will go a long way toward preventing mold from returning. Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and replace it with dry air. This process controls humidity, preventing wood rot, mildew, and mold growth. At Dry Otter, our energy-efficient dehumidifiers will keep your basement dry all year round.
