Tallahassee, FL - All year round, mold has the ability to infiltrate your home and cause major problems. Because mold thrives in cool, damp, hidden places it is not usually noticed, but it’s important to find these green, black, rust, or gold varieties so your home stays clean and healthy.
Tallahassee’s hot, humid climate is the perfect place for many types of mold to flourish. When the air in your basement is cooler that the surrounding area it creates condensation making your crawls space the ideal place for this fast growing mold to multiply.
Indoor Environmental Management’s president, John Hassler, was interviewed for the Chronicle edition of the Tallahassee Democrat and says that “The old wisdom of venting a crawlspace has been proven wrong. Venting just lets in hot, humid air where it will cool and condensate. The only way to prevent mold conditions is to seal the crawlspace and dehumidify it.”
