Mold loves attics and basements. Why? Because mold only needs two ingredients to grow – mold spores and moisture – and attics and basements have plenty of both. Mold spores stay pretty harmless on their own, but once they get exposed to moisture, they turn into full-fledged mold. Basements can pull mold spores and moisture up from the ground, and attics can pull them from the air surrounding the house and from your HVAC system. Combine these conditions with the high humidity in our area, and your attic and basement become the perfect breeding grounds for mold. Don't despair, though. ANR Restoration is here to help.
