Mold Growth in your Home

Mold is a microscopic organism called fungi that can grow anywhere there is a damp or wet environment, a food source (ranging from wood to tile and other organic based materials), and high humidity. If certain types of mold didn’t exist we wouldn’t have cheese or penicillin, but there are other types of mold that can create major health concerns. Some molds growing in your home also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals. When people touch or breathe in these mold spores they can elicit nasal and sinus congestion, induce runny nose and eye irritation, and provoke respiratory problems such as chest tightness and sneezing fits. At SERVPRO West Riverside City we are committed to the protection of your property and the health of your family, so we have cutting-edge mold cleanup and restoration packages to suit your home repair needs.

The first step for eliminating mold is to investigate your home for any sources of major indoor moisture. Pay special attention to piping connected to the roof, plumbing leaks, backed-up sewers, and the space around the humidifier or air conditioning unit. If you are a tenant you want to alert your property manager of potential water damage areas that should be fixed immediately.

One way that you can safeguard your home against mold is to improve the ventilation in your residence.  Not all heating or cooling systems circulate fresh air into your home, so in order to help keep your home well-ventilated you should consider using kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans, window or attic fans, or a window air conditioner with the vent control open. If weather permits it’s always helpful to keep the window open as well.
