Tips to Prevent Mold Damage from Ruining Your Nampa Home
Seek the Help of Professionals When You Discover Mold Damage in Your Home
Mold damage can wreck your home if you do not act fast. Mold spores are notoriously fast to spread, and if you ignore the early signs, you can have a catastrophe on your hands before you realize it.
The most important thing to remember about mold damage to your Nampa property is never to ignore it. Seeking professional help as soon as you can, is your best defense against the mayhem that can potentially be caused by mold damage. That said, there are a few things that you can do to prevent the damage from getting out of hand. Here are a few useful tips that SERVPRO professionals recommend.
Look for Problem Areas in Your Home and Correct Any Problem
When it comes to mold, moisture is perhaps the most important factor promoting the growth. Any areas in your home that have excess humidity, including crawl spaces, basements, bathrooms, and attics need to be inspected thoroughly for any signs of mold growth. These areas can easily be missed during routine cleaning. If there is excessive moisture in these places due to leaky pipes, faucets or any other reason, they can be breeding grounds for the spores. Make sure that you are paying close attention to these areas and if you see or smell any signs of growth, seek the help of IICRC certified SERVPRO professionals to remedy the situation.
Make Sure Your Home Has Good Ventilation
Simple activities such as cooking, showering or doing the laundry can create a situation of high moisture content in specific areas of your home. Proper ventilation can efficiently dissipate this extra moisture in a matter of minutes. Make sure that these areas are as dry as you can keep them.
Improve the Air Flow
Improving the air flow in your home can work wonders in preventing accumulation of residual moisture. It is even more critical during the winter months as when the temperature of the air decreases, it can hold less water and often deposits excess moisture on surfaces such as walls and ceiling. Improving the air flow can significantly reduce this process.
