Remediation definition: the diagnosis and work of remedying a problem specific to reverse or stop a trauma.

The presence of mold in a house can often spark anxiety in homeowners, and for understandable reasons. Not simply because of the worry of exposure or mold allergies, but the unknown underlying cause, and the concern that if it’s not addressed, the problem will likely reoccur.

As a homeowner, It’s helpful to understand a few things about mold.

Molds can grow but require steady dampness, dew like condensation (like a hot shower creates), or actual water. Mold also requires a particular indoor environment and an organic product to grow and multiply. Mold loves water damage, and organic materials like cardboard (keep cardboard off the floor), paper (the main ingredient in drywall), soft untreated woods, cotton, bedding, books, or any natural organic plant materials. Considering these facts most mold growth in homes will often have a fairly apparent cause and presentation.

Some people have a higher sensitivity to mold and the presence of mold spores (including black mold) can lead to adverse health problems and allergic reactions. Keeping your home clean and dry will significantly decrease the growth and effect of mold. However, in many cases, it isn’t as simple as running the air conditioner or trying to control moisture with the aid of a dehumidifier. It is not uncommon for the source of the indoor mold to tied directly to the dampness of your basement walls.
