You may be wondering if basement encapsulation is good for your basement, and your health, and the short answer is yes. Always necessary? No, but often it’s a great idea, and here is why.

In climates where there is either drastic temperature swings from day to night, and those where there is high humidity or large rainfalls leading to constantly damp conditions, or even just long periods of seasonal rainfall causing seasonal wetness, there is the potential for moisture borne air quality issues as well as persistent harmful mold. Additionally older homes that have been built on old stone foundations can be particularly susceptible to basement moisture and water penetration, creating an environment that is bad for health and property. Just solving the acute problem may not be enough.

Solving the problem of water and moisture penetration into your basement in many cases, is just the first step. Ensuring that any future penetration doesn’t cause long-term effects is critical to the permanency of any solution.

Many persistent moisture issues tend to come and go, even after measures to stop the base problem have been undertaken. In those instances basement encapsulation can be a way of mitigating those persistent issues.

What is the difference between wet basement solutions and basement encapsulations?

Solutions to remedy moisture and water problems in basements are obviously a great thing, anything you can do to remove the moisture source is a necessary undertaking. Solutions such as sump pumps, proper drainage, dehumidifiers, and properly configured ventilation to keep temperature variations between sections of the building at a minimum are all solutions that should be considered. However they often don’t go far enough in situations where persistent moisture remains, in those cases creating a barrier between the moisture and the structure is key to removing the long term problem and it’s affects. It’s this barrier that ensure, that in combination with the removal of the water source that will mitigate future moisture issues such as pesky and harmful mold.

A Quick Note on Mold

“Any visible mold should be removed, no matter what its color or species,” says Tiina Reponen, PhD, professor of environmental health at the University of Cincinnati. “In a healthy building, you don’t have visible mold.”

The CDC’s Perspective on Mold Testing and Removal

“Generally, it is not necessary to identify the species of mold growing in a residence, and CDC does not recommend routine sampling for molds. Current evidence indicates that allergies are the type of diseases most often associated with molds. Since the susceptibility of individuals can vary greatly either because of the amount or type of mold, sampling and culturing are not reliable in determining your health risk. If you are susceptible to mold and mold is seen or smelled, there is a potential health risk; therefore, no matter what type of mold is present, you should arrange for its removal. Furthermore, reliable sampling for mold can be expensive, and standards for judging what is and what is not an acceptable or tolerable quantity of mold have not been established.”

The EPA’s Perspective on Mold Testing and Removal

Is sampling for mold needed? In most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary. Since no EPA or other federal limits have been set for mold or mold spores, sampling cannot be used to check a building’s compliance with federal mold standards. Surface sampling may be useful to determine if an area has been adequately cleaned or remediated.
