As a homeowner, you should conduct a close inspection of your home every once in a while. A handful of times a year is great and we would suggest once every few months. Now, if you have gone down into your basement or crawl space and found mold & mildew, it is not enough to simply clean it up and move along. Mold & mildew form and thrive in environments that are moist, humid, and warm. Often, a basement or crawlspace perfectly fits that description. To keep your home and foundation safe from water and moisture, you have to have professional waterproofing contractors come and install waterproofing products such as vapor barriers, sump pumps, and crack injection.
So how does mold & mildew form? When water enters your basement through cracks, it adds to the moisture and humidity of the environment. Because basements and crawlspaces are below ground, they are well insulated and often stay relatively warm. These factors come together and are the perfect environment for mold & mildew to grow.
