The Dangers of Water in Your Basement

More than Flowers are in Bloom

With temperatures rising and spring thaws in full swing, the danger of mold making its way into your basement increases every day.

In fact, mold may have already started growing in your basement without you even knowing it. It’s not uncommon for mold to go unnoticed during the winter months, only to show up in the spring as rising temperatures encourage it to grow.

Unfortunately, where flowers blossom with colorful petals, mold blooms by releasing toxic spores into the air which can make your allergies worse, or even cause sickness for someone in your family.

Winter Weather Increases the Chances of Spring Mold

Mold in Corner of BasementWith the freeze/thaw process that takes place during the winter, your basement walls expand and contract, potentially resulting in cracks in your basement walls, or even damage to your foundation.

When spring comes and temperatures rise, ground thaws begin to happen more frequently until snow and ice crystals trapped in the soil melt completely. When this happens, those cracks become open doors for moisture to leak into your basement. And mold loves moisture as much as flowers love rain.

Mold Remediation Experts

Mold causes all kinds of problems, including health issues. If you have a mold in your basement, you need to get it taken care of right away — before the problem gets worse. The mold spores it releases can circulate throughout your entire house, even if you keep your basement door closed.

If basement or foundation leaks are to blame, they need to be fixed as well. Otherwise, you can expect that mold to return, leading to more sickness and more expense in fighting back mold.
