Why SERVPRO - What You Need To Know About Mold

12/21/2020 (Permalink)

Mold spores are everywhere in your environment and can enter homes easily.  Most types of mold grow quickly if they have a water source, an organic food source and temperatures between 60 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Studies have found excessive dampness indoors is a public health problem by encouraging growth of molds, dust mites and other organisms.

Ways to Control Moisture and Reduce Mold

  • Correct any water leaks or standing water.
  • Remove standing water under cooling coils or air handling units.
  • Replace washing machine hoses with steel mesh lines.
  • Move large objects away from the walls to provide good air circulation.
  • Use exhaust fans in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
