Mold can be found in any environment where oxygen-dependent organisms can thrive. It can also contribute to an assortment of health-related issues and other risks. The good news is that restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ from Mammoth Restoration include mold cleanup and remediation. Below, we discuss some of the main causes of mold growth.

High Humidity Levels

A buildup of moisture and humidity is a common cause of mold. This is more likely to be the case with indoor spaces lacking sufficient circulation. Minimize mold issues from excess humidity by properly ventilating your work or living spaces to increase airflow.

Leaking Pipes

Leaking pipes are a common cause of mold growth behind drywall and under sinks. If a leak resulted in a gushing geyser you may also have mold issues below your flooring, especially carpeting that got wet. This is why any serious leaks should be reason enough to call us about water damage restoration and mold mitigation.

Basement Flooding

Another common cause of mold growth is a damp or wet basement. Possible culprits include concrete that’s not properly sealed, uninsulated pipes that are creating excess moisture, sump pump overflows, and having a basement that’s not properly ventilated.

Fire-Related Water Usage

After a fire is extinguished, water can get everywhere within the affected area. This is more likely to be the case if you have a home or business sprinkler system triggered by excess smoke or other signs of a fire. Prevent mold growth from becoming an issue from all this water as you start the cleanup process by contacting us about fire damage restoration and cleanup as soon as possible.
