Water Damage in Basement


Just finished drain tile installation in our basement after multiple instances of water intrusion.

We are planning on remodeling the basement in about a year. We have cut back 4" of the existing paneling around the bottom, and some locations have drywall behind that also has been damaged. The drywall has likely wicked up much higher on the wall, and we are looking for temporary relief until the remodel.

Per attached pic's, if this is bleached and covered for a year with temporary baseboard, do you see any serious causes for concern?

Water Damage in Basement


Not really.

If you got the source, treat with bleach and it should kill/make inactive the spores.
