Mold In Your Cold Room? How To Prevent And Fix It
Many homeowners are surprised to find cold room mold in a basement that is otherwise clean and dry. The truth is, because of the inherent condensation, cold room mold is not uncommon. In most homes, a cold room is characteristically cool – and when warm air interacts with a cool wall condensation quickly accumulates. Slowly, mold begins to develop and spread – destructively.
For the most part, cold rooms have poor ventilation, along with limited airflow. These conditions allow condensation to further accumulate, providing a habitable environment for mold. One way or another, cold room mold must be removed – preferably by a professional and with high-power equipment. The aim is to completely eliminate mold, remove stains, and clean up the space.
Can Cold Room Mold Pose A Serious Problem?
When mold is allowed to grow on the walls and ceiling of a cold room, there’s a danger that mold spores could spread to adjacent rooms in the basement. More than that, if a mold infestation is not remediated, there could be structural damage to the cold room, not to mention the potential for health risks. Mold removal from a cold room requires safe and effective removal/remediation.
It’s Preferable To Remove Mold Professionally
While mold removal is absolutely essential in a cold room, it’s also imperative to counteract the conditions that promote mold in the first place. Professional remediation can arrest mold in the early stages, and thus prevent substantial damage from developing. More importantly, the aim of professional mold remediation is to eradicate the infestation and avert any future development.
Effective Options For Preventing Mold Growth
For homeowners who want to effectively prevent cold room mold, the priority is to ensure good ventilation. This will reduce air moisture levels and will therefore prevent any condensation from accumulating. Another priority is to install proper insulation, along with proper vapour barriers. All of this will prevent warm air and air moisture from collecting and promoting mold growth.
