Basements are Known to be a Breeding Ground for Mold.
Mold needs humidity and darkness to grow. This makes your basement an ideal place for mold to develop. If you are finding mold in your basement, chances are there’s either foundation with leaks or appliances that create condensation in your basement, because they are giving mold a moisture source from which to grow.
Also, in North Carolina, humidity is unavoidable, so mold has an even greater opportunity grow compared to less humid climates. This mold can easily spread to the rest of your home, causing air quality issues throughout your home. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, estimates that 65% of the air in the first floor of your home comes from the basement. Because mold enters the air in your home, it can lead to many health issues for you and your family, especially if anyone has allergies or asthma.
Basement Odors Creeping Upstairs in Your Apex Home?
Mold traveling from your basement to the rest of your home through your HVAC unit is not just damaging to the air quality in your home, it also spreads an unpleasant odor throughout your entire home. This creates an overall unfresh smell, which is not something you want to experience in your home.
This can be avoided by keeping relative humidity below 60% in your basement. This is the level at which mold will not grow. The first step to take in making this possible is eliminating any sources of water entry.
