Ways You Can Prevent Mold Growth After Water Damage

9/6/2018 (Permalink)

Most homeowners and renters are familiar with the common household annoyance that is mold. But just because it’s common doesn’t mean that common solutions will always work to fix it. Sometimes, mold requires more than a simple cleaning and you need to hire professional remediation services.

But when is that time? This blog is meant to offer information about mold that will help you decide if and when you need call an expert.

  1. Is the mold a common occurrence?

Places in your home, like the bathroom, that are often damp and humid are the most likely places for mold to grow. But that could also mean the attic or basement are prime spots for mold as well. If mold keeps recurring in these places, even after several scrubs, your problem may be bigger than you think.

  1. Is the mold in a hard to reach place?

You might not know it, but mold likes to grow in or behind the walls too. Because it tends to be hidden in these places, it’s sometimes too late once you find mold in the wall. Often, the mold-infested section has to be removed.

  1. Is the mold causing health problems?

Mold allergies are just as common as mold. Less common, but more serious, are the other respiratory issues that mold can cause. Mold can also cause skin irritation. Mold spores travel through the air, so mold-related health problems are usually indicative of a larger problem.

If your answer to any of these question is yes, it’s time for you to hire a pro to get rid of the mold in your home. Call SERVPRO® of Western Essex County today to get life back on track.
