condensation and mold in basement

3 months ago
last modified: 3 months ago

Hey all,
I could really use some help as I’m totally out of ideas to help my parents. They have been having major humidity issues in their basement the past few years and constantly run dehumidifiers in the basement. Now that it’s fall, they don’t have this issue but I just noticed some of their HVAC pipes are covered in mold (sigh). Apparently these pipes are where they saw the major condensation. The ceiling is covered with the typical ceiling tile.

We have called everyone and no one can get to the root of this. The only difference I can draw back to is that the HVAC was replaced a few years ago. Multiple reputable companies have come out and told us the HVAC was installed just fine. Attaching a picture to give you an idea of what we’re dealing with.

Please help! Who should we call? I've called a plumber, mold company, HVAC. No one can seem to figure it out. Appreciate any insight / clue you can provide to help me solve this mystery for them.

Thank you!!!
