windows and extra doors that allow for effortless access into your basement, you'll want to think about some simple actions to
help deter burglars. I remember moving into our new home as a child and being forbidden from entering the basement for the first
two weeks after moving. My mom would tell me that a secret gas lived down there, and if I got too close I would get really, really
ill. I remember big men in intimidating masks going in and out of the cellar. Cover any easy access points with Entry or Motion
Sensors. Consider putting bars or safety film on your windows. Keep furniture away from windows; you do not want to provide an
easy drop down for a burglar. If your basement is not used much, think about adjusting your Home Mode settings so that cellar
Motion Sensors are constantly on. Mold usually comes in the presence of water. Whether it's humidity, a leak, or a flood, it's
important to act quickly to stop any mold from growing. A excellent way to keep an eye on water levels in your home is using a
Water Sensor. If water does get in your house, you should act quickly. Speak to a mold remediation company if you can. If you are
tackling the cleanup on your own, dry everything as fast as possible. Remove any standing water. Bring in the help of fans, air
conditioners, or heaters to help dry things out. Target wet insulation, wet carpeting, and wet drywall as those take the longest
to dry. If possible, eliminate them completely. You will also want to wash anything that could be holding onto germs or dirt with
detergents. If you discover mold in your basement, then Adam Schanz recommends contacting a professional to help identify and
remove the mold. Keeping Burglars from your Basement: The other dangerous gas frequently in homes is carbon monoxide. This gas
comes from burning gas with your furnace, your vehicle, or other gas appliances. It is extremely important to get these appliances
tested professionally once a year, particularly in the winter. It's also crucial to have a good Carbon Monoxide Detector located
in your basement or wherever this gas is very likely to accumulate.Thanks to decades of ghost stories and horror movies, we tend
to think of basements as the scariest place in the house. And in some ways, that's not far off the mark. The dangers in your
basement are likely not monsters or ghosts (phew!) . But there are some scary hazards which can cause your loved ones, yourself
and your home serious harm. Luckily all of these are easy to treat and prevent. The important thing, as always, is knowing what to
search for. Dangerous Gas on your Basement: There are plenty of different types of mold that can creep into your cellar. The most
common ones include Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and Stachybotrys Atra (also known as black mold). Though I am not sure which gas it
was, there are really only two choices: radon and carbon monoxide. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. You can't see
it or smell it, so the only way you'll know if it is there is by testing for it. If your house hasn't been tested, you'll want to
check into this. Long exposure to radon can lead to poor indoor air quality and lung cancer. Sneaky Mold in your Basement:
