Why do I have mold in My VA basement?

Basements can be the ideal breeding ground for mold development. Where there is mold, there is an underlying moisture source contributing to the mold growth. Since basements are so vulnerable to moisture buildup, it is no wonder that it is one of the most common areas for mold. Here are some common moisture sources in basements that cause mold:

  • Excessive humidity – over 55% relative humidity
  • Water leaking or seeping through foundation walls
  • Flooding
  • Lack of air flow and circulation
  • HVAC duct condensation

Can Basement Mold Make Me Sick?

Regardless if it is black mold or white mold — excessive fungal growth has the potential to cause health effects in individuals who spend time in the building. Some people may have stronger reactions to basement mold than others. This reaction depends on your immune systems, the length of time of exposure and several other factors, but many mold species can negatively affect everyone – even healthy adults. Since many VA basements contain HVAC components like air handlers and duct work, much of the air from your basement is circulated throughout the entire home. This is why we recommend a thorough duct cleaning with an antimicrobial after or during every mold remediation.
