Prevent Mold Damage To Your Fayetteville Home
Mold Damage Prevention
Homeowners in Arkansas know that mold is an unwelcome house guest. Mold in your home looks unsightly but worse than that it damages your belongings and the structure of your home, and might cause health effects. That is why it is important to act on the first sign of mold damage.
SERVPRO is here to help with mold damage to your Fayetteville home. Our IICRC certified technicians have the equipment and know how to carry out effective mold remediation. We quickly assess the extent of the mold damage, seal off the contaminated area, and get to work cleaning every surface. We understand that every mold damaged surface requires an individual approach to cleaning. We use powerful HEPA vacuums to get rid of loose mold spores, sanding and damp wiping to clean up semi-porous materials, and the correct cleaning compounds for smooth surfaces.
Our aim is to mitigate mold damage and reduce the presence of mold for a nicer environment for you and your family. There are also various things you can do to prevent mold from occurring:
Check For Problem Areas
Be aware of the problem areas in your home. If your basement or laundry is susceptible to mold, start there. Do your best to waterproof problem areas and always keep an eye on them to check for new colonies.
Dry Clothes Properly
Damp clothes are a leading cause of mold in the home. Never leave damp clothes lying around – hang out to dry or use a tumble drier. If you must dry your clothes indoors, use a well-ventilated area.
Keep The Humidity Down
Humidity is a key factor in mold growth. Buy a simple humidity detector from your local hardware store and look out for condensation in your home, as it is a sign of raised humidity. Use dehumidifiers to keep the humidity down.
Dry Damp Areas Immediately
There are lots of causes of damp areas in your home. They include humidity, damp clothes, condensation, seepage from outside, and damage due to a flood or burst pipe. Drying damp areas immediately helps to prevent mold growth.
Ventilate Your Home
Good ventilation keeps air moving and makes it harder for mold to grow. Open your doors and windows regularly. Open your closets to let air circulate. Move your furniture away from the walls.
