Moist, Damp Spaces Breed Dust Mites & Mold

Mold thrives in moist, dark environments, with a food source of organic materials to consume and dislikes the sun and dry areas. Mold growth usually starts below ground level, in your basement or crawl space area.

Dust mites also thrive in similar conditions. While their presence is merely an irritation, their microscopic feces pose a serious health hazard equal to mold spores. Dust mites can cause respiratory issues, just like mold. These microscopic creatures defecate up to 20 times per day. Each mite creates waste that weighs up to 200 times its own body weight, often causing respiratory issues in the process.

Mold is not only responsible for damaging building materials and possessions, but it can also affect your family’s health. Mold can cause breathing problems and can trigger asthma, allergic reactions, or other respiratory ailments.

Why You Need Dehumidification & Drying Services by Superior Basement

What to do if you find water or condensation in your crawl space? Time is of the essence here. Removing water quickly keeps damage to a minimum – less time for the water to penetrate walls, floors, and anything else in its path. After removing water, the crawl space may look dry, but there is a good chance they are still retaining moisture.

Most building materials are porous and will retain significant water; this water retention will cause building materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage. So it is essential to dry and dehumidify properly with air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers.
