Tips on Preventing Mold Problems
If you’ve had a fire or flooding in your home, you can be left reeling with damages to clean up. Mammoth Restoration can lend a hand through our restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ. One of the issues we can help with is mold problems.
Here are a few tips that can help you stop mold growth in its tracks:
Identify Problem Areas
Certain areas in your home might be more susceptible to dampness and, therefore, mold growth. Common problem areas typically include closets, bathrooms, basements, attics, and crawl spaces. If you have a window that seems to have a constant problem with condensation, that area could also be prone to potential mold growth.
Another thing that could trigger mold issues is if a previous water damage restoration service was not carried out properly.
Immediately Tackle Wet Areas
Mold requires moisture in order to grow. As a result, if you have any wet areas in your home, you should immediately dry them. If you had a recent fire, you could be left with wet areas where the firefighters extinguished it with their hoses. Fire damage restoration needs to be done properly so that issues like excess moisture can be avoided.
Ensure Proper Ventilation
Properly ventilating your home can make all the difference in the world when it comes to preventing mold problems. Use dehumidifiers, run your air conditioner and use exhaust fans in any room that gets overly damp and humid. Even opening windows can improve the ventilation in your home and prevent too much dampness from settling in to invite the growth of mold.
Take Care of Leaks
You may need emergency restoration if you have any leaks that have been ignored. Such leaks can lead to much bigger problems with water damage and mold growth, which can quickly spread. Even if you notice a single small leak, it can quickly lead into a much bigger problem, so it’s important to act quickly. Mold needs only a small bit of moisture to grow and can pose serious health hazards to everyone in your household.
