Heavy Rains caused my mold

Heavy Rains caused my mold?

We recently were asked to look at a house that they suspected had mold underneath, in the crawlspace.  Our team looked at the job and verified that mold was present and that we should get it cleaned.  Let me take a few minutes and talk about what happened in this particular situation.  Mold will occur when areas are damp and have minimal air flow.  This house had been built for years and had never had this problem before so why now?  The answer, surrounding conditions had changed.  There was an apartment complex that was built recently behind this customer’s home.  The additional dirt work that was done, along with the addition of parking lots added some additional water flow to this home owner’s property.  Even though the home had been built for years, the current drainage around the home was not quite enough to allow for proper drainage.  This allowed the water to get under the home and sit allowing the mold to begin to grow.  Even though you have lived in a home for years always be conscious of your surroundings.  Changes in your area can have an effect on your property.
