Mold in the Basements
Common signs of mold growth in a basement include musty or stale odors, moisture staining or suspicious growth on surfaces such as walls, wood or contents. Mold needs two things to survive: a moisture source and a food source. Unfortunately for homeowners, most basements provide both of those ingredients, making them a perfect breeding ground for molds.
Mold will feed off of any cellulose-based products such as wood or drywall. As for the moisture source, just because you haven’t had a flood or water loss event, does not mean there isn’t moisture. When relative humidity levels exceed 55%, there is enough moisture in the air for mold to grow.
