mold and moisture problems

Mold is one of the most ancient organisms on the planet, therefore it needs very little in regards in the way of nutrients to survive. Its primary form of sustenance is cellulose material and moisture, both which are plentiful in regards to water damage. Mold is a significant problem in relation to water damage and general problems with moisture in the home. This can often be caused by a backup of a sump pump, a leaky roof, or a pipe bursting. Mold is often an after effect of these moisture disasters that occur.

When dealing with mold the general factor that seems to the creation of the problem is water. Water is a basic ingredient for mold growth. It allows for mold to travel at a rapid pace and latch on to the walls that if made of wood materials can easily provide sustenance for the mold to grow on and reproduce their spores. These spores can travel quickly through the air and therefore can spread to other parts of the home. Here are parts of the home that usually have consistent moisture problems that can cause mold to develop.

  • The attic area of the home usually has a consistent moisture problem due to it not being well insulated, or that there is a potential for a leaky roof. This area is a prime area for mold to grow in the home due the moisture being built up in the area because it has nowhere else to go.
  • The basement area of the property is a prime example of a place that mold can easily grow. Many basements have issues with moisture permeating from the soil surrounding, and with the possibility of a sump pump being in the basement it is also a problem. The moisture in this area needs to be controlled otherwise the mold will keep reoccurring.
  • The kitchen of the home often has a mold problem, because of moisture as well. With sinks and dish washers in this area of the home there is almost a constant source of moisture. Though it may not be apparent these sources can help in the producing of mold areas that are not entirely visible such as under the cabinet surfaces or behind the kitchen cupboards.
