Mold Remediation Tips on How to Prevent Mold Mold Remediation Process in a Basement

Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.

Tips on How to Prevent Mold

  1. Identify problem areas in your home and correct them
  2. Dry and clean wet areas immediately
  3. Prevent moisture with proper ventilation
  4. Equip your home with mold-resistant products
  5. Monitor humidity indoors
  6. Direct water away from your home
  7. Clean or repair roof gutters

Homes in Iowa that have Basement mold are often the result of a source of moisture — leaky foundations or condensation from appliances are typical culprits.  When water damages are ignored and not cleaned/dried properly this also can lead to mold.  One of the first steps in the prevention of basement mold is to ensure that your basement is free of any moisture and is cleaned and dry.
