Hello! My name is Sean Worthington, and I am the owner of Worthington Basement Health Systems. I want to tell you a story about how our comprehensive basement health services make a real difference in the health and safety of our customers’ homes. I personally know this to be true because the following story is about my own family and my own home.
My wife and I had just recently brought home our newborn son. About a week later, our two-year-old daughter came down with a fever and had a runny nose. We were concerned, but we figured she picked up a bug from somewhere—as two-year- olds tend to do. However, by the next day, five people in our house had either a fever, a runny nose, a cough, or combination thereof.
We ruled out flu/viral causes since there were no other flu-like symptoms present, and even though my wife was afflicted, our newborn son (whom she was in constant contact with) remained symptom- free—thank goodness!
With my knowledge about basement health and the potential side effects of mold through my continual participation in the Basement Health Association, I decided to look in my crawlspace to see if there was any mold present. Now, I had looked in my crawlspace at least a dozen times in the past six months and never saw any signs of mold or moisture. Sure enough, this time there was mold. I used an instant-read mold test stick that I obtained from EZ-Breathe, and it showed me instantly that there was a mold problem.
I immediately called my local mold remediation contractor, but he wasn’t available for at least a few days. I couldn’t just sit around and let my newborn son and the rest of my family sit in a house with mold, so I immediately installed a Santa Fe dehumidifier and an EZ-Breathe ventilation system.
By the very next day, everybody in the house was symptom-free. For me, the biggest relief wasn’t just getting rid of the runny nose and fever—it was knowing that my family was safe again.
When the professionals at Worthington Basement Health Systems talk to you about moisture management and offer you solutions like full-wall encapsulation, dehumidification, and ventilation, we are doing it with the goal of making your house safer and your family healthier.
It worked for my family, and it will work for yours!
