Mold Spores Prevention by Scaldino Basements in Central and Northern New Jersey and Staten Island, NY

Mold Spores in Central and Northern New Jersey and Staten Island, NY

Keeping your home dry may be hard work, but the positive effects can last a lifetime. Everyone wants to live in a comfortable space; however, there is another reason why getting rid of the excess moisture is important, and it is most often due to mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew are organisms which are sometimes undetected by the human eye. Though it may appear harmless, having it grow in your home can be very dangerous. Mildew is a type of fungus which consists of hyphae, or fungal filaments produced on living plants or organic matter. Mold, on the other hand, can come in one of three most common types:

  • Pathogenic Mold
  • Allergenic Mold
  • Toxic Mold (black mold)

These microorganisms are not the fastest beings alive, but they do spread dangerous spores which, if inhaled and constantly exposed to, cause various health issues and symptoms, such as:

  • Runny Nose
  • Respiratory Problems (e.g. difficulty breathing, tightening of the chest, and wheezing)
  • Incessant Coughing and Sneezing
  • Sore Throat
  • Asthma
  • Skin Allergies
  • Lung Cancer

Sadly, a lot of homeowners turn a blind eye when it comes to mold and mildew, and by the time they are faced with the consequences, it's too late. Don't let this happen to you. It's better to stop the these microorganisms from growing by keeping the moisture in your basement or crawl space at a healthy level. We can help by installing a basement waterproofing system, a crawl space encapsulation system or a dehumidification system, depending on what your home needs.

Tips on Preventing the Spreading of Spores

  • Check Your Home for Leaks, Floor & Wall Cracks, and Ground Water Seepage
  • Inspect the Cleanliness Levels of Your Ventilation System and Ductwork
  • Use Antimicrobial Spray when Cleaning Mold Infested Areas
  • Thoroughly Dry the Areas that Are Often Exposed to Water
  • Consider Installing a Vapor Barrier in Your Basement or Crawl Space
  • Most Importantly: Install a Dehumidification System in Your Basement or Crawl Space
