An elderly woman lived alone in a single section of her larger-style home. The rest of this large home went unused and unmaintained. After inspecting the basement, it was clear that it needed to be completely demolished and cleaned to rid the area of mold. The moisture from her neglected greenhouse in the backyard seeped into the basement of her house, resulting in mold growth.
This happens often with older people who live by themselves and do not take care of their homes. People may be unable to do things they previously could as they age. It’s important to take care of your home. Hiring assistance or asking loved ones for support can help to maintain the health of your home. Taking proactive measures could save you time and money in the future. Remember: Don’t let mold take over your house; stay on top of maintenance, and keep your home healthy for years to come.
