a very MOLDY situation

Thursday, May 5th, 2016 by Corey Mosher

Our Basement Specialist encountered a very MOLDY situation during yesterday's inspection!

When mold spores are present, they quickly multiply and spread, and exposure to the spores can cause severe health concerns. In the beginning, the symptoms may start out small, but they will get progressively worse with more exposure over time.

Mold usually grows on organic types of materials such as paper, cardboard, drywall, wood, carpet, and fabrics. Mold must have the right types of conditions to grow. Usually, some type of water damage needed to occur and the area stayed wet for a long enough period of time (i.e. more than 48 hours).

Humidity is a major contributor!  Within the Maritimes, people who live in humid environments are more likely to have a mold problem, because mold thrives in more humid areas.
