Mold is one of the common issues affecting property owners. Mold infestation not only impacts your property’s structural integrity but also causes serious health issues, including allergies and asthma.
While you cannot predict when mold infestation will occur, you can take preventative measures to combat the problem. You may need professional restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ, from Mammoth Restoration, but it’s imperative to begin the process on your own. Here are some tips for preventing mold infestation.
Keep Humidity Levels in Your Building Low
Mold flourishes in a humid environment, so keeping your building’s humidity levels low is crucial. A dehumidifier or an air conditioning system can help you maintain low humidity levels in your home or business. You can also buy a meter to measure your property’s humidity. This can help you avoid labor-intensive and time-consuming emergency restoration services.
Direct Water Away From Your Property
If the ground around your building is not adequately sloped away from the foundation, water can collect and seep into your basement or crawlspace. If you notice a damp basement, wet flooring, or any other sign of potential water damage, call for prompt water damage restoration services to prevent future mold issues.
Increase Ventilation in Your Home
In some cases, your routine household activities can encourage mold growth and prompt you to contact a restoration company when it worsens. Ensure simple activities such as cooking, showering, or doing laundry don’t encourage mold growth by increasing ventilation in your kitchen, laundry room, kitchen, and other high-moisture spaces. Vent moisture-generating appliances, such as stoves and dryers, to the outside.
