Foundation water damage caused by wet, damp conditions in a basement are the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Mold growth, if left untreated can spread and severely decrease the homes value. Because air is circulated throughout the home, the mold and mildew can impact the health of those that live in the home.
