Causes of Mold in Your Home in Cincinnati, Ohio

Invisible mold spores are always present in your home no matter how clean it is. The problem arises when moisture and dampness convert the fungi spores into colonies of slimy, dark mold which can breed behind the walls and in other dark, damp, out-of-the-way places.  In addition to causing structural damages, molds and fungus can cause health risks. Molds are known to be hyper-allergic and long-term exposure to them can trigger allergens, asthma, and cause other respiratory diseases.

So, what causes these horrible pathogens to breed in your home in Cincinnati, AmeliaAberdeenBellevue, and other cities that we serve throughout our tri-state service area? Usually, condensation and dampness are the biggest culprits. But other factors contribute as well. They include:

Top Four Reasons for Mold Growth in Your Home or Office

Causes of Mold

Humidity: During summer, consistent humidity in the air gives birth to mold spores as the moisture content in the air is usually high during this time. Ensure proper ventilation during warmer days to avoid high humidity. We will also suggest installing a dehumidifier for better results.

Condensation: On the other hand, in the colder days, your home will be susceptible to mold because of condensation. Insulate cold floors, metal and water pipes to avoid this problem.

Damp basement: A poorly waterproofed basement will always be damp and moist as groundwater or flooded water will often get accumulate in the space. Molds thrive in a moist and dark environment, hence, your basement is at high risk. To avoid a moldy basement, encapsulate your basement, repair foundation issues, and place a sump pump to direct water away from the foundation of your home.

Leaky appliances: Inspect your air-conditioner, water heater, and washing machine once in a while for detecting underlying leaks or damages. A leaky appliance will continuously spill water even if the leak is not noticeable. This will give birth to mold and bacteria ruining your wooden floors, carpets, or boarded walls.

Teasdale Fenton responded to a flooded lower level due to a failed sump pump within 90 minutes of being called on a Friday night. Corey and Zack efficiently cleared what needed to be moved out of the way and then removed the water. They set up fans and a large dehumidifier. The next day a team came out to check on everything and measured for dampness.

We had a pipe burst in our attic over a weekend and called Teasdale- Fenton. They sent someone out same-day to quote us on cleanup from the water leak and sent a team out the following day to remove wet insulation and leave Fans to dry everything out. Before removing the fans they moisture tested the whole area. Very pleased with their prompt and professional service.
