Mold can grow on virtually any organic material as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on wood, carpet, insulation, food, and paper. Being that mold eats or digests what it is growing on, in the case of a home, it will cause structural damage if unaddressed. A basement mold treatment performed by Jersey Shore Crawlspace will protect your basement for decades.
Why Mold Occurs Within the Basement
There are two main factors when it comes to mold growth within the basement, the common thread being moisture. Mold occurs when the wood moisture content (the amount of water in the pores of the wood) exceeds 20%, and/or the relative humidity within the crawlspace exceeds 55% for a period of time.
Some mold strains pose significant health risks, but even those that do not, can trigger a number of allergy and asthma related symptoms, in addition to attacking the integrity of the wood structure.
The symptoms of exposure to mold or air borne mold spores can be:
- Nasal & sinus congestion
- Itchy, red & watery eyes
- Respiratory problems, such as wheezing & difficulty breathing
- Throat irritation
