Water can enter the basement from many locations throughout the home, and the corner and joint of the foundation perimeter is no exception. In fact, this wall will not get better on its own, it will only get worse!
In order for mold to grow, it must first be active. For a mold spore to become active, there needs to be a food source, temperature and humidity to round out the formula. Take a look and see how the mold is moving and growing in this photo.
Drywall materials are wonderful for mold growth and are basically great food sources for mold. Obviously, the mold in this basement needs to be treated, and the mold drywall will also needed to be removed. The remaining organic materials like the floor joists will need treatment, as well as a dehumidification and waterproofing systems installation.
Wet Basements and mold, the two run hand in hand. Take a look at the photos in this album and you will see where water has been and mold growth.
