With spring , come rain showers. At Ricotta Heating & Air, we know what that means for basements.
If you have a basement that leaks, showers would create the perfect conditions for our old “buddies” Mold and Mildew to appear! According to Health and Energy.com, “Mold is that fuzzy growth of moist organic matter created by several types of fungi, while mildew is mold growing on fabric.”
Who wants that? Not I! According to Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, mildew is defined as a superficial, usually whitish, growth produced on organic matter or living plants by fungi. Both mold and mildew can contribute to allergy symptoms and sinusitis.
The Mayo clinic recommends controlling your heat and humidity to help prevent mold. In Brentwood and throughout the St. Louis metro area , Ricotta Heating and Air Conditioning can help you control your home’s temperature and humidity.
