Did You Know That Mold Growing In Your Basement or Crawl Space Can Destroy Your Home’s Air Quality?
If your basement floods when it rains, or it is damp and moist most of the year, you may have a mold problem.
Moisture in your basement leads to:
- Mildew growth
- Increased energy (heating and air conditioning) costs
- Mold growth
- Respiratory problems
Basement Mold Is a Dangerous Allergen
Mold (along with dust mites) is one of the most dangerous, and common, allergens in your home. Because your basement is cool and moist, mold loves to grow there.
Mold reproduces by releasing spores into the air. These spores float around seeking out other wet spots. They land, feed off the moisture, then a new mold colony forms.
These reproductive spores get into the air of your home because more than half of the air in your basement will circulate through your home’s main living areas.
Molds are Fungi
Mold loves you basement: it’s damp, there are lots of organic materials (wood, furniture, drywall, flooring, etc.), and there is a ton of humidity.
How to Get Rid of Basement Mold
Mold can only be eliminated by:
- Reducing the relative humidity in your cellar
- Removing the source of moisture: water getting inside of your basement walls and floor
- Covering all surfaces during mold removal to ensure that the air-borne spores do not land and re-grow
