When dealing with water, moisture or mold in a basement, there are steps that need to be taken to ensure the issue is completely resolved, especially if the next step is renovating the space.
First, a Basement Detective will identify the source of the mold, moisture or water. This can be caused by a myriad of things, of which our Detectives are well-trained in sussing out. If the root cause is not identified and corrected, it is possible that the issue will persist or even get worse. Once the cause of the problem is identified, there are likely to be a number of options, sometimes involving scope of work and sometimes involving separate courses of action. Where applicable, our technicians will dialogue with property owners and explain the cost and benefits of different approaches. Once the best option has been chosen to fix the specific problem, a proposal is written up and Basement Detective is well on the way to fixing the issue.
