Given below are few tips from experts that will help you make the most of your basement development:

For instance, transforming your basement might turn into a very expensive deal if you ignore your existing plumbing settings. While assessing your basement for possible renovations, you must pay close attention to aspects such as accessibility, height of the ceiling, humidity, cabling, emergency exits, heating, ventilation, insulation, lighting and plumbing systems.
2) Kids playrooms and guest suites are easiest in terms of renovation, as these require minimal plumbing, cabling and electrical alterations. Similarly, if your basement in relatively good ventilation system, you can even consider transforming it into a home gym or luxury sauna. Needless to mention, such features will add great value to your home.
3) You must also visit local building department to get information on the building codes that are applicable to your area. It is also recommended that you discuss with a real estate agent in your area to determine on basement spaces that are appreciated by potential buyers.

Because of the often damp nature of basements, mold is a problem that many of us will encounter at one point or another. The simplest way to fix and prevent basement mold is to call on the help of a Calgary basement development company. However, if you would like to tackle the challenge of ridding your basement of mold by yourself, here is what you should know before.
Mold is dangerous. We are sure that you already that, but are you aware of how dangerous mold truly is? According to Health Canada, mold has been shown to cause severe infections to people with weakened immune systems. Even if you do not have a weakened immune system, PLANit BUILDERS highly encourages you to put on a respirator before going anywhere near the affected area as mold has been linked to allergies and other respiratory problems.
Clean the surface. Once you have taken the proper safety measures, it is time to get rid of the mold. First dampen the affected surgace with water, then mix water and dish detergent in a bowl. Scrub the surface until all visible spores are gone. Don’t forget to rinse the walls again with fresh water.
Find and fix the underlying cause. Do not merely treat the symptoms otherwise the mold will reappear before you know it. Do not hesitate to rely on professionals to ensure this step is done correctly—they do that for a living, after all.
Keep your basement in good condition. Maintaining your basement in good condition is the surest way to prevent mold. Don’t forget that mold also thrives in a humid basement. According to Health Canada, a basement should have a humidity level of 50% in the summer and 30% in the winter. If necessary, you should look into purchasing a dehumidifier. Also be aware that mold often accompanies bugs. If that is the case with your basement, you might enjoy this article detailing how to fix this issue.
