Water in your basement can be hazardous to your health. Moisture is the key ingredient to indoor air pollution, according to the EPA. A leaky basement provides an excellent environment for mold growth, as well.

"...mold cannot grow without access to moisture. The most effective way to treat mold is to immediately correct the underlying water damage and clean the affected area."
