Mold and Carboard Boxes

Moisture and cardboard boxes encourage mold growth

Mold needs moisture and food to grow, and cardboard storage boxes can become a mold feast in a damp basement. To protect your belongings and your home's air quality from the threat of mold, store items on plastic or metal shelving instead of on basement floors. Address any basement water leaks, and if mold has already started to grow, hire a mold remediation professional to clean up the space.
