What Types Of Property Can Mold Destroy?
When mold begins growing in your home, it can really do a number on your property. In basements used for recreation, bedrooms, or storage rooms, the property you keep in the space can be come destroyed with a shocking rapidity if mold is present, and there is so much property that mold can destroy. Mold feeds on cellulose, which cotton, paper, drywall, and all types of other belongings are made from, meaning a vast majority of your belongings can become mold food if the right conditions are present.
Mold requires cellulose food sources, a room temperature, and moisture to thrive, so if all three of these things are present in your basement, your property is in danger. Mold spores can live in the air, and when this air comes into contact with the perfect atmosphere trifecta, your mold will begin growing on, devouring, and destroying property within your space.
If your basement is carpeted, carpeting can also make an excellent mold food source. Carpet can be expensive, and when it comes into contact with mold growth, this can be an investment you’ll find yourself rolling up and throwing away. If you decide to replace the carpet without taking care of the source of the mold and moisture, you could find you’re rolling up the next carpet as well.
Mold can root itself to your walls, your carpets, your furniture, or your belongings and feasts as it spreads all throughout your space.
