Understanding moisture and mold
According to the EPA, the key to controlling mold is controlling moisture. Molds grow and thrive in wet, dark environments, which is why it is prominent in basements and crawl spaces where it can be difficult to maintain a relative humidity level below the recommended 50 percent. Once a basement or crawl space experiences any kind of water issue, mold can spread to walls, floor joists and other surfaces within a matter of days. This leaves you vulnerable to many harmful allergens and other major health issues. If you suspect a mold problem in your home or business, the mold remediation specialists at SouthernDry of Alabama can help.
