Preventing Mold Damage in Your Property

9/19/2016 (Permalink)

Mold can find itself into any corner of your home. Don't delay, call SERVPRO to remediate!

Here are a Few Steps to Take for Mold Prevention

Mold is everywhere, with windowsills being one of the most frequent locations in a home to have mold and mold spores. This shows that it isn't always people who bring mold in with them, but the wind. Being airborne, mold spores can be swept up into fans and sent further into a home's interior much more easily than many assume. This portability means that preventing mold growth adequately must include keeping the environmental conditions inside a home inhospitable enough that mold cannot begin to proliferate.

In Warrington, mold damage can affect your home, your rental property, your vacation cabin, and everything in them. Keeping mold to a minimum is key. Mold cannot ever be completely eliminated, except in super-clean labs where everything is done to prevent contamination. No home will ever be completely free of mold. Control through dehumidification is essential, although there are other methods that can be used.

Temperature control can also assist in keeping a home's interior dry. Checking for leaking water lines is also another way to control the environment. HEPA-grade filters on vacuum cleaners, air filters, and central air systems are also another. Having air vents cleaned, ducts inspected and any debris removed through vacuuming will also help prevent mold from becoming a health threat. These are excellent ways to keep mold growth controlled in any home, but to know that they are working, a measurement should be taken.
