It’s Never Too Cold For Mold
Mold is an oft thought of concern during the spring and summer months, but many homeowners don’t realize that it’s never too cold for mold, and your home is just as susceptible in the winter as well. During the winter, snowmelt and oversaturated ground can cause moisture to find its way into your home, and this creates the perfect environment for mold growth.
At AA Action Waterproofing, we often deal with mold situations in the winter, and we find that many homeowners are surprised by the growth during this seemingly “off” weather season. Because it can be difficult to effectively eliminate moisture during the winter, moisture may be left hiding in the places you least expect, and the dark, warm, and moist setting of your basement makes for a perfect mold sanctuary.
If you happen to experience excess moisture in the winter, it’s incredibly important to check for mold and make sure that none begins its growth in your home. Looking at moist areas closely and monitoring them for growth regularly is ideal during the winter, and if mold should be spotted, we recommend beginning a mold remediation process straight away.
Of course, the best way to avoid mold growth during any time of year is to avoid allowing moisture into your space, and this is best accomplished with a basement waterproofing process. With basement waterproofing, a professional will take an individual look at your basement and your home, and determine which steps can, or should, be taken to prevent moisture from finding its way into your home in the first place.
At AA Action Waterproofing, we perform both mold remediation processes and basement waterproofing processes in order to keep homes happy and healthy all year round. If you suspect your home may have mold, or you’d like to learn more about having your basement waterproofed, simply call us today and speak with a professional to get started!
