How moisture in your basement impacts your health

Moisture in your basement can negatively impact your health in a few different ways. 

  • Respiratory Issues: Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments. These organisms release spores that you can inhale, triggering allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Symptoms can include coughing, sneezing, wheezing, stuffy nose, and irritated eyes. People with asthma or allergies are especially susceptible to these effects.
  • Bacterial Growth: Damp basements provide a breeding ground for bacteria. While some bacteria are harmless, others can cause a variety of infections, especially if they become airborne and you inhale them. Additionally, if someone in your household is sick, the damp environment can help those bacteria spread throughout the house.
  • Impact on Overall Health: Constant exposure to moisture and mold can lead to various health problems beyond respiratory issues. These can include headaches, fatigue, skin irritation, and even sinus infections.
  • Mold: Mold spores are a significant health concern. Inhaling them can irritate the respiratory system and worsen allergies and asthma. Some mold species produce mycotoxins, which are toxic substances that can cause more serious health problems.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Wet basements can harbor VOCs emitted from certain building materials like carpets, adhesives, and paint. Exposure to VOCs can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, and even damage the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.
