 Q. June 21, 2012. House has a basement that is 2 feet lower, than ground level door, and water rushes in when big rains come down the driveway, and has done this many time during the life of the house. House built in `1973-74, plus sewer back up, which has now been taken care of by addition of sump pump to pump out. My garage had the ceiling and insulation ruined by a water leak in the kitchen above the garage when we were gone for 6 months. Remediation to be done only by me, under disguise from neighbars, so the word MOLD, is never gotten into the rumor about the house, and house sale. One word out, the whole town would know. I have already and will continue to dispose of materials, by hauling out of town, or putting in the bottom of a dumpster, with news papers on top to hide it.
    
A. Before you do mold removal and remediation, your first step is to stop rain water from entering your basement.  One workable solution is to make a narrow, permanent concrete dam (maybe just a few inches high) or barrier to keep the driveway rain from entering into the ground level door to your basement or from seeping through the side walls and foundation of your basement. In addition, you need to find a way to divert the driveway rain run off away from your house, maybe into a flood retention run off area (lowered ground area to hold water) you can incorporate into your backyard landscaping.  The sump pump pit is going to be a big source of airborne mold spores in your basement. If there is any way to seal the sewer line/sump pump connection to keep mold spores from going into your basement air, consider doing that step. In doing your own mold remediation (the lowest cost and most private way for you to do your house mold remediation) you must always wear proper mold protection gear such as disposable vinyl gloves, eye goggles with no breathing holes (“chem-splash”), N-95 breathing mask, hat, and disposable or washable coveralls. Please read the 25 steps for safe and effective mold remediation at http://www.moldinspector.com/mold_removal.htm.  The moldy garage ceiling  materials need to be removed, discarded, and replaced. Before installing a new ceiling, remove all mold growth from the wood timbers, and spray all surfaces with at least two heavy sprayings of boric acid powder mix. You can read the mix formula and buy boric at http://www.moldmart.net.  Remove and discard all basement building materials that got wet so that you can do a good job of mold inspection behind flooded walls.  You would be wise to do heavy ozone generator blasting of your entire basement for at least two hours and at least several times after you have removed all basement building materials that got wet. You can buy our very powerful, low cost ozone generator at http://www.envirodetectives.com/ozone_blasting.htm.  If you have any follow up questions, I am here to serve you----Phillip Fry, mold expert, Certified Environmental Hygienist

      Q. We moved into a home with a finished basement which had been flooded once before. Due to dampness mold was showing on the walls. They were washed with a solution and repainted with a special paint. Due to one more flooding, mold became apparent again. We had the whole basement torn apart, removing walls, carpeting, etc. It remained dry for 2 years. This year it flooded again, three times in two weeks and we have been pumping water 24/7 with the sump pump for about 6-8 weeks. We have also installed a dehumidifier. We do not use the basement and keep that door shut. In the last two weeks mold has become apparent in the staircase on this side of the basement door. How much of a health risk should we be worried about? Is there anything else we can do at this point? [June 16, 2005]
     A. Even before your most recent floods, it is extremely likely that the past floods in your home and the past, probably-inadequate mold remediation efforts have resulted in mold growth hidden inside walls, ceilings, and the heating/cooling equipment and ducts. Learn the 25 steps for safe and effective mold remediation. It is likely that basement mold may have grown into the floors and walls above. It is also almost guaranteed that airborne mold spores from the basement mold will have traveled in air currents to mold cross contaminate your entire house and its heating/cooling system. Airborne mold spores from the basement can travel in air currents up and down stairs, and also enter your upstairs through open windows and doors and the fresh air intake of your heating/cooling system. You would be very wise to mold inspect and mold test your entire home. Do it yourself mold inspection and testing tips are provided at Mold Inspection. Airborne mold spores in elevated levels in your home and its heating/cooling system can cause serious and permanent health damage to your family members and cause a huge loss in value of your home should you ever decide to re-sell it.
