Mold sucks
    #3537729 - 12/24/04 12:21 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

So I have a basment that is a tid bit molding, the mold is usually white or rusty colored (could be rust), So I tried bleech and soap, didn't work well, It seems the only way to fix it is fix the basement, but thats a 3000$ job, So my plants that are down there get a nice little white layer on the soil, is there anything i can do to prevent this? how will this effect my plants?

Oh yeah, my basement is quite dry, its usually about 40% humidity because of the de-humidifier down there.

why is it molding? depending on your siding ive found if i spend a couple days repairing the sides of the house (outer), the whole wall not jsut lower, the leakign stops.

anyway if its 40% where s the problem? any fungicide will work for your plants.

for cleaning i have found a solution of 2 part bleach 5 parts water 1 part degresser liquid dish soap kills and cleans everything. thats what i have sprayed on stucko before painting, works everytime.

you must have a water infiltration through your walls, check out where there's more mold, that's the spot.
in this case, the only way is to fix the leaking wall, like kuda said, from the outside/upside.
fungicides or if you already have it beside you - a lysol can do a nice destruction to the mold, after that some fungicide to prevent it to come back should work.
ah, kada said it all, dishsoap should also nuke the bastards!

Clean the wall and then paint with one or two layers of basement sealer. If there are any holes you'll want to patch them. Also, the ground near your foundation may be poorly graded or drained.

better to seal the outside than the inside...dont want any water at all inside teh walls. im sure you already knwo whats wrong with your walls, but normally just sealing it with a caulking does the job...in most cases.
