Common Causes of Mold Found in Basements in Utah
Basements are a common feature of Utah homes. They add inexpensive square footage for most homeowners of Salt Lake City, UT. However, they are often darker and more susceptible to moisture through the foundation, window wells, and leaky pipes which is why Green Home Air specializes in basement mold removal.
Mold removal from the basement is particularly difficult because the moisture is much different from the rest of the home. We also tend not to be in this area of the home as much. However, all it takes is a slow drip from an HVAC unit behind a few storage boxes or a leaking pipe obstructed by drywall that first begins to dampen the rot from the inside out. Mildew will multiply quickly in environments such as these.
It is best to reach out to Mold Remediation professionals in these situations. Spot scrubbing or simply whipping away what you can see never resolves the underlying issues and mold is sure to return. The technicians at Green Home are trained to assess the unique factors existing in your home. Any problem from overall air quality, ventilation, or growth behind walls are accurately pinpointed and isolated from the rest of the house.
