Causes of Basement Mold in Boston, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Below grade spaces are especially prone to fungal growth because they are naturally moist and don’t get much sunlight. Ground water is always pressing against the foundation, seeping into its pores. There are a lot of pipes that can attract condensation and release heat. And there are plenty of organic materials it can feed on.
Have you had a burst pipe or appliance overflow upstairs? Even if you’ve mopped it up, leftover water can trickle down into basement walls and ceilings. It will take a long time to dry, giving mold a toe-hold. Flooding is common down below, too, from appliances like water heaters that go on the fritz.
Even if you use a sump pump and dehumidifiers, there can be serious issues: once this room gets wet, mold can start growing in as few as 24 hours! If it’s very wet for a while, conditions are right for the growth of toxic black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum), which has been linked to serious illness.
We can encapsulate it, scrape it or blast it clean, and then disinfect the area. However, sometimes it’s necessary to cut out and remove highly contaminated materials such as drywall, carpets or furniture, and throw them out. If this is necessary, we will take great care to make sure these items are removed without making the growth airborne.
What You Can Do Basement mold removal treats problems that arise. You can help prevent trouble by keeping your basement clean, especially carpeting; insulating pipes; getting walls and ceilings professionally sealed; and keeping the room’s naturally stagnant air dry and circulating. It’s most important to keep humidity levels below 55 percent.
Don’t ignore the signs of an infestation. Whether you are a homeowner or a real estate professional, call now for an immediate estimate from a certified remediation specialist.
