Why should you look out for mold?

Hi friends, it’s Tracy here. After the cool and crisp weekend we just enjoyed,  you are probably thinking you don’t have to look out for mold anymore.  But this morning it is drizzling again and  last week was sticky and humid, just like we were back in August. Guess what? Sticky, humid weather is perfect for mold to get a foothold in your basement. You probably thought that mold went out of your life with the crowds of summer, but unfortunately, that is just not true. You still need to look out for mold, and get rid of it before it spreads!

Where should you look out for mold?

Mold loves to grow in damp humid places where the temperature is right, and there are plenty of nutrients around. Which part of your home might be damp and full of humid air? Your basement might be after a week like we just had. Is the temperature just right for mold? Mold likes cool dark places, just like your basement. What about those nutrients? Mold finds a good meal in the dust and dirt present in almost every basement. Did I mention your basement? Mold is no slouch. With the right conditions, like the ones we have after last week’s humidity, it might be a good idea to take a look around.
