Mold in Vacant Homes in Virginia Beach, VA

With a third-party owner such as a bank, mortgage company, or government entity or simply left to itself for the owner is on a long vacation, the vacant home is shut down to save on maintenance costs. The homes are generally winterized by turning off all utilities, leaving the home to the ravages of the weather.

During the cold winter months, the home becomes a nest for pests looking for a winter’s lodging. Then in the hot, humid summer, the homes are at the mercy of moisture, which feeds mold. With the doors and windows closed and the air-conditioner turned off, the indoor humidity levels increase, feeding any mold spores that were present — and all homes have mold spores.

Mold in Vacant Homes in Virginia Beach, VA

The molds need warmth, water, and a food source to thrive. A closed house is warm, the summer months are humid and the house itself is the food source. Mold forms when its airborne spores encounter moisture and food sources, such as wood, dirt, and paper. Moisture can be found in humidifiers, leaky roofs and pipes, flooding, and other types of water damage in the home.
