Upon entering my grandmother's basement, I found something growing everywhere! What is it? Is it dangerous? How do we get rid of it? Obviously there is a moisture problem, but there is so much of it we can't get to the water or drain lines to find the problem.

Per Treva William's response - i would recommend you contact the health department because this appears to be some type of mold growth due to the damp conditions since several types of mold pose health hazards be sure to always wear a mask when having anyone inspect the basement...
