Not only is mold ugly and rancid, but it can also adversely affect the air quality in your home. Often it takes a while for our senses to tap into the growth, but when they do, the problem must be addressed. Regardless of its health effects, none of us want mold growing in our homes. It's not something we can just cut, clean, and call it a day. If you've discovered a mold problem, you've also discovered a moisture problem. Moisture is made up of microscopic spores that can be hidden inside a wall, behind a tub, and even under a kitchen sink. Don't let the mold slide under your radar.
At Showcase Home Improvements, Inc. , all of our contractors are certified mold professionals that have the tools and knowledge to restore your home back to its original condition. They consult with hygienists to determine the extent of the mold infiltration and remediation procedures.
So, what should you do? Give us a call a call when you first notice the mold. Don't wait for it to grow until you decide it is a problem, because nothing is hindering its height.
There are some quick facts you should know about mold if you have suspected a problem in your home:
Mold needs moisture to grow, and it usually caused by uncontrollable water damage.
Once moisture is obtained, mold is quick to duplicate itself. It requires much lower moisture levels to survive and reproduce.
Mold growth will only be prevented by quick and efficient drying.
We know mold causes you to be in a sticky situation, but we're dedicated to getting you out. Here are some things you should keep in mind to restore your home with confidence:
Moisture control = mold control.
Quickly locate the source of moisture. If the source is running water, turn off the water.
Keep gutters clear to prevent collection.
Keep humidity low inside your home, otherwise condensation will occur.
Fix leaks promptly.
Make sure areas where humidity is in the air, such as bathrooms, have fans to help with ventilation.
Make sure your clothes washer/dryer vents to the outside of your home.
