April showers bring May... MOLD!

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 by Gwen Hurd


Spring in New England is glorious! The landscape changes so rapidly. The dreary grey snow and brown wilted leaves are washed away, purple and yellow crocuses spring from the earth, and trees burst with white and pink blossoms.  The perfect spring day is magical, warm, and… fleeting.

Currently, at the Dr. Energy Saver Northshore office:

Let’s be honest. The perfect spring day is rare. More often than not, spring is rainy and damp. As the snow melts and rain pours, groundwater rises. What does this mean for your home?

Cracks in your home’s foundation, exposed rim joists, open sump pits, and open crawl spaces allow outside moisture into your home. Ordinarily these problems just make your home uncomfortable, but in rainy damp weather, these problems can create the ultimate homeowner nightmare: MOLD.

Do you have any of these signs of humidity in your house?

  • Musty odors
  • Condensation on windows, pipes, and ducts
  • A clammy or sticky feeling to the air

If you are experiencing some of these warning signs, mold might be lurking somewhere just out of sight.

Dr. Energy Saver can help keep moisture out of your home by: 

  • Sealing and insulating rim joists
  • Sealing and insulating ducts
  • Covering open sump pits
  • Sealing and insulating crawl spaces
  • Recommending the best dehumidifier for your property

Give us a call before it’s too late, BEFORE you have to worry about mold remediation!
