Preventing Mold Damage in the Spring!

2/22/2024 (Permalink)

Spring brings its own mold challenges.  The rainy season and warmer climate can cause mold to form unexpectedly.  Luckily, there are ways to stop mold in its tracks!

Keep your home dry. 

Mold feeds on moisture and wet areas.  Check your property for signs of leaks or cracks along your windows and doors where warm air can get in.

Inspect mold-prone areas.

Mold can grow quickly in places such as bathrooms where shower curtains and wet tiles are present.  Laundry rooms attract mold due to damp clothes or a humid environment, while window sills can collect moisture.  Clean these areas often.

Invest in an air purifier.

These help to trap and eliminate mold spores in a given space in addition to helping prevent those spores from entering a property.

Look for signs of water damage or strange odors.

After a water leak, mold can often be found inside the walls where it needs to be tested by a professional for the degree of severity.  A strong odor can be a questionable concern.

If you suspect mold, act fast!  Mold can spread in as little as 48 hours, but SERVPRO of Cecil County is equipped to respond immediately!  For a free assessment, give us a call!
