When you think of summertime you think about sun, cookouts, and vacations. But it’s also mold season. That’s right! The chances of mold growth in your home increase in the summer months due to warm weather and of course rain.
With this year being one of the snowiest and rainiest on record in Minnesota, it goes without saying there’s a chance you might have some dampness in your basement. Heavy rains, water tables, and runoff can all contribute to moisture and if this is something you’re experiencing with your basement, its a perfect set up for mold growth.
