Mmm....dog urine and mold are a fantastic combination of smells.
Now, I am happy to report, it looks completely different. Thanks to a knowledgeable contractor with some mold remediation experience, it no longer smells like Satan's butt in our basement.
I don't have but two before pics because honestly it smelled so bad down there I didn't wanna go down there to do it. Here are the only 2 before shots I have:
|Standing water was in here when we first saw it. As cool as an indoor swimming pool sounds, we decided we had best take care of it.|
|I walked in here the first time and told Dave that I felt that I was on the set of "That 70's Show"|
And here are the pics after:
|All the mold is gone thanks to our fantastic contractor. And now we have nice new drywall, that is actually dry.|
|This is the downstairs bedroom which had visible mold growing up one wall...and in which a child was living while the mold was present. What are people thinking???|
|Downstairs bathroom/laundry area|
|Oh so you noticed the wallpaper in the previous pic? Here is a close up. Classy does not even come close to describing. I mean who wouldn't want toilet print wallpaper in their bathroom?|
|This girl, that's who. This will be a room to address at a later time.|
|When we first saw the house there were mushrooms growing in this little place under the stairs. I'm telling you people, fixer upper is what we bought! All gone now. Again, our contractor is amazing!|
|I'm not really a fan of fireplaces, but we decided to keep this one just so Santa has a way to get into our house.|
