So much planning, designing, construction, and creativity goes into a basement finishing project. With all of the hopes and dreams that homeowners wrap up into bringing their unique vision to life, it is easy to understand how some end up straying from their original budget.
Using wall-to-wall carpeting is a common choice that people make during basement finishing projects. Unfortunately, when a flood or leak occurs, even after water has been removed and the area has been professionally cleaned, there is a slightly elevated threat of mold growth.
If you hardly ever go down to your basement and are currently only using it as a last-resort storage area, you’re not just missing out on the potential to open up new space in your home – you may be unaware of some potentially dangerous threats.
