We know there can be many sources of moisture in a basement, which means that you might not even know the scope of the basement mold removal project you need. Commonly, any water problem will take a long time to dry out as basements often get little sunlight or proper ventilation, making it damp and humid. High humidity plus cooler temperatures in a basement can produce a lot of condensation, creating the perfect environment for mold to grow. Some of the most common causes of basement mold are the result of flooding, cracks in the foundation allowing moisture in, sewer backups and high humidity.
One of the easiest ways to tell if you have mold in your basement is the smell. As air circulation is usually less in a basement, odors become very noticeable. If you suspect mold in your basement it’s best to hire a professional mold removal service to remove the mold, especially if the area of mold growth is large. This is especially true in the case of dangerous molds like toxic black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum) which should only be dealt with by a professional with the right equipment.
