What causes mold on walls

Mold growth on walls is one of the major headaches for homeowners living in areas prone to water damage and humid areas. Even areas with low levels of humidity are not safe from mold. Poor ventilation in kitchens and bathrooms, gutter blockage and other problems, ineffective drainage systems, and cracked roof tiles can cause mold growth due to the accompanying moisture problems. This means mold problems can develop almost everywhere and homeowners need to be cautious to ensure mold growth is prevented or eradicated as soon as it shows any signs of infestation to avoid structural damage as well as health risks associated with mold.

What is mold and how does it grow in your house?

Mold is a fungal growth that grows and thrives in areas with excess moisture. It spreads to other areas releasing spores in the air and forming new colonies when they land in damp areas. Every time there is water damage or excess moisture in your home you are steps away from having a mold infestation in your home.

What does mold look like on basement walls?

Mold is characterized by black spots or grey, white slimy substances on the surfaces. However, it's not always visible. Sometimes the only way you might suspect mold is by having symptoms like eye and skin irritation, difficulties in breathing, and allergic reactions. If you in any way suspect mold growth, even if you can't see it, we recommend contacting our services for mold testing and inspection to help ascertain if you have a mold infestation to prevent mold from growing to high concentration levels.
