Seal The Walls!

  • Concrete block walls are porous and will absorb water
  • Moisture on the wall will lead to mold growth
  • Waterproofing or waterproofing paint alone will not prevent the growth of the mold on the wall.
  • Epoxy is the most effective type of wall sealant, holding approximately 40 psi of water pressure.

 

Seal the basement walls with a mold resistant epoxy before mold is a problem, and save time and money.
