Crawl Space Mold Removal: Damp

Dampness can manifest itself in the form of visible moisture, such as leaks, or as high humidity. Dampness in homes or buildings creates an environment conducive to the growth of mold spores. Even in the absence of mold, dampness can cause damage to a building. Exposed individuals to mold are more likely to experience allergic reactions and asthma symptoms if they are allergic to mold.


Is mold a sign of moisture?

Damp can cause mold to grow on walls and furniture, as well as the rot of wooden window frames. Condensation is responsible for some of the damp. This can result in the growth of mould, which appears as a cloud of small black dots in the air.


So, what exactly is the difference between damp and mold?

The first step in dealing with damp or mould is determining the source of the problem. If the water used to construct the house is still drying out, it is possible for damp to develop in a newly constructed home. Bathtubs and showers are two common places for mould to grow in your home.


What exactly is mold caused by moisture?

Mold flourishes in moist environments and reproduces by disseminating tiny, lightweight spores that travel through the atmosphere. Mold is something you are exposed to on a daily basis. Mold spores are usually harmless in small quantities, but when they land in a moist area of your home, they can begin to grow and cause damage.


Is there a problem with damp in a house?

If you are in the process of purchasing a home and discover that there is damp in the basement, you should have the damp checked out by a professional and then speak with the seller about what can be done to either fix the problem or negotiate a lower price for the property.


What is the best way to tell if it’s damp or condensation?

Condensation-related black mould, which can appear on any wall of the property, is one of the most common signs of the condition. The opposite of this is the case with rising damp, where if mold is present, it will only affect the ground floor of the property. Water accumulating on windows is a common symptom of condensation in residential buildings.
