A number of years ago, we had a water problem at our home that went undetected.  It ultimately led to a serious mold problem. Half of our home's interior was torn down to the studs and had to be completely rebuilt.

Essentially, we had to live with a large portion of our home sealed off while crews work. But we knew mold could cause serious health issues, so we grinned and made do.

The experience definitely made me appreciate the importance of using contractors you can trust — people who not only have the needed expertise but show up when they say they are going to and provide explanations that are easy for us common folk to understand.

That's why I trust Perfect Basement. They pride themselves on quality work at a reasonable price.

"Proper containment and removal of mold growth is essential to preventing further spread and contamination of air with mold spores and toxins," Perfect Basement explains on their website. "Mold contamination can be a serious health risk and professional removal and remediation is paramount."

Not only do they contain, kill and remove the mold, but they also treat the affected area so it won't return and fix any water leaks that might have caused it in the first place. Here are some photos of pretty serious mold infestations:
