Molds, Dust Mites & Odor in MA and RI

Molds, Dust Mites & Odor in Massachusetts & Rhode Island

Often, the first signs of mold are visible within blotchy stains, either found on the floor, walls, or even wrapped around objects such as piping. When you can’t see the mold however, you can immediately sense there’s a problem when the moldy smell hangs in the air, making a room smell damp and musty.

If you’re concerned about mold growing in your home, you should be. Mold has been responsible for damaging building materials and possessions, but far more importantly, it can take its toll on your family’s health, as well. Mold can cause breathing problems and can trigger asthma, allergic reactions or other respiratory ailments.

Dry Basements & Crawl Spaces Deter Mold Growth From Boston to Providence to Cape Cod, by Pioneer Basement 

Mold dislikes the sun and dry areas, and thrives in moist, dark environments, with a food source of organic materials to consume. To get a good idea of where mold growth may be starting, the best place to look is below ground level, in your basement or crawl space.

In the same vein, dust mites also thrive in the same conditions--and while their presence is merely an irritation, their microscopic feces does pose a serious health hazard, equal to mold spores.

Aside from mold causing respiratory problems, dust mites do the same thing. Dust mites can defecate up to twenty times per day, and this amounts to it creating waste up to 200 times its own body weight. Their feces, having the composition of 15 potent allergens, can trigger asthma and respiratory issues in humans. In fact, studies prove dust mites are the number one indoor allergen we face in our homes! Your best bet is to kill the dust mites, by lowering the relative humidity in the environment to below 50%. Dust mites die when there is no more humidity to suck up from the air, effectively dehydrating them.
