Moisture Control is the Key to Mold Control

There are companies that only extract the water they see. They may install some air movers to dry what they see. This is not enough! It also may take several days at considerable expense. You could end up with some serious mold problems!  

Many times portions of the entire structure may become wet. That is why it is necessary to ask questions to assure yourself that the company you're talking to has the necessary qualifications to do your job. Also realize that with the inspection it may turn out that there is nothing for you to worry about with regard to your structure.

Where Does Mold Grow?

Floors, walls, appliances, carpets or furniture – all provide the food mold require to grow. But the thing all molds need is moisture, so you are most likely to spot mold in wet or damp areas like kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, crawl places and basements. When you spot mold in these places, be sure to contact FloodSERV mold detection company as soon as possible for professional mold remediation services. 

Mold Remediation: What Not to Do with Mold 

Mold removal requires adequate care and precautions, especially in ensuring the safety of your family. During mold remediation exercise, it is important that you protect unaffected areas of your home. This is where a professional mold inspection and removal company comes in. 

Three important things to keep in mind during mold removal:

1. Disturbing mold growth 
Never disturb mold. Scrubbing or touching growth areas may cause spores to aerosolize into the air in your home. Inhaling or ingesting potentially toxic mold spores could result in serious health problems. This is why you need to hire a professional mold detection company for the exercise. 
2. Use of biocides 
Biocides, contrary to what some manufacturers claim, are not an easy solution for mold removal. Biocides only temporarily reduce the mold’s viability without removing its spores or toxic properties. In short, biocides do not address potential health effects of mold.  
3. Drying out mold 
Depending on the situation, drying out mold is not always an effective mold removal idea. This is because drying only removes some of the mold’s sustainability and food source. As a survival mechanism, mold spores could aerosolize in the process. 

Mold Inspection and Removal Tips 

Effective mold remediation begins by eliminating what mold needs most - moisture. Here are some tips for reducing moisture within your home: 
  • Keep indoor humidity below 50% if possible. You can use a hygrometer to monitor indoor humidity.
  • Keep your house warm in cool weather to discourage mold growth.
  • If you are living in humid climates, reduce indoor moisture levels by using dehumidifiers and air conditioners.
  • Keep the doors between rooms open to increase circulation.
  • Fix leaks and seepage within your home.  
It is important to rid your home of mold and mold spores. Since mold only thrive in wet or damp places, reducing moisture in your home is the best way to keep mold out of your home. If the mold is already growing in your home, it is important that you hire a professional mold inspection company to fix the problem.
