Airflow & Moisture Control: The Secrets To A Healthy &Enjoyable Finished Basement
If done right, a nice profit and many enjoyable years can grow out of your healthy, well-designed basement. However, if your basement was finished without proper attention to crucial details, like ventilation it is likely your basement will grow something else, namely mold. What we really want to avoid is mold growth, not mold spores, since mold spores are, in fact, unavoidable.
Mold growth occurs when a few specific factors are present. In fact, part of the problem is that these factors are very often present in nearly every basement.
- Comfortable temperature
- Nutrition/food source (cellulose, i.e., drywall, ceiling tiles, wood, carpet, etc.)
Of all of the above factors, moisture is the most easily controlled. Diamond Hill Builders uses modern materials and techniques that maximize airflow in basements so that moisture is less likely to accumulate. With a little help from from a dehumidifier most of our basements are completely absent the damp feel and smell many associate with basements.
