  • Mold in the Basement and what you should know:
    Basements are notorious breeding grounds for mold and bacteria. Anytime you have an area with a high amount of moisture buildup and little to no ventilation, you can expect an onslaught of mold. People may attempt to clean their basements in order to prevent mold growth, but this can be difficult with newer homes because they have so many organic materials in them. These are the kind of materials that mold loves to feed on. Once that happens, the mold will spread onto places like concrete walls, ceiling, carpeting, furniture, and any other organic material that may be around. You will notice mold immediately when you see it in your basement. It will have the appearance of multiple black spots that are closely bunched together. There will usually be a distinct odor that will even travel through your home through the furnace and HVAC. It is challenging to remove mold with typical household cleaners after it has started to spread. You need to use commercial quality disinfectant to do the job right.

  • Mold in the Attic and what you should know:

    Mold in the attic is more common than you may think. Moisture can easily build up inside of an attic because of poor ventilation or a problem with the roof. Wherever you have moisture problems, you are likely to have mold problems that will follow.

    • White mold and black mold are the two types of mold commonly found in attics. Black mold grows from poor ventilation and high levels of moisture buildup. This is what causes people to experience symptoms like wheezing, coughing, eye irritation, and respiratory issues. As for white mold, it is usually found on the wooden ceilings or the drywall.
    • One way you can tell if there’s a moisture problem is by examining the nails in the attic space. If there is rust on the nails, then it means there is moisture in the environment. Mold loves to inhabit moist environments, especially if there is organic matter to feed on.
    • A ventilation problem in the attic may cause moisture build up. This can usually be attributed to problems with your kitchen or bathroom vents. Sometimes an older home will have faulty vents which send heat into the attic instead of the outside environment.
    • When heat merges with the cool air of the attic, it creates humidity and moisture. It won’t take much longer for mold spores to find their way in there and start spreading rapidly. This problem will need to be addressed immediately if it exists.

    As for the roof, there is a barrier just below it which is supposed to prevent moisture from seeping through the ceiling. But this barrier cannot handle roof leaks or ice dams. The latter refers to ice which blocks the downspout. This is bad because when it gets warmer, the snow on the roof will melt into water. If the ice is still blocking the downspout, then the water won’t drain from the roof. Instead, it will build up on the roof and likely cause a leak into the attic. Not only does this increase mold in the attic, but it can also damage your insulation, walls, and ceiling as well.
