When a water damage occurs everyone looks for, and expects there to be mold growth. However, it does not take a water leak for mold to occur. Any moist area can eventually produce mold. So what can you do to prevent that unwanted growth? To start it is important to keep your home properly ventilated to reduce moisture, and to consistently check high humidity areas for musty smells or visible mold. You can run a home grade dehumidifier to help prevent this.Mold can hide under your carpets, in your windows, or pretty much any other area that is not often checked. Always remember though, if you do find a hidden mold patch to give us a call. We can help, and are always waiting to do so.
