The key to mold control is moisture control which can be maintained through humidity levels.
The trick to healthy below-grade spaces is keeping the area dry and free from mold—or anything that may be a food source for mold.
Mold and mildew flourish when the relative humidity level is above 80%; therefore all basements—finished or unfinished—should be kept at or below 50% relative humidity.

Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually.
When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpets and foods.
When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold spores in the indoor environment, the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
