We’re glad to introduce our newest sponsor The Mold Remediation Pro’s! We all hope that water damage, mold and other mildew issues are never a problem for us, but accidents can happen and obviously we’d like to know how to best deal with it.
Mold growth due to water damage can be a real surprise sometimes, but if you’re aware of the most common areas it can grow, you’ll definitely be able avoid the expensive remediation processes associated with mold, mildew and water damage.
Basements & Cellars: Notoriously cold and uninhabited during the winter, basements are an easy place for moisture to gather in terms of melted snow which really becomes apparent come the spring. If you have an unfinished basement, or even a recently renovated one, you’ll want to check for dark earthy stains, curious water spots, and even musty smells – these are all signs of a possible mould infection.
Exterior Ventillation: If you have any external ventilation ports, they can become very susceptible to black mold and mildew problems. Air borne mold spores can get sucked into your homes ventilation and spread very fast which can make the remediation process quite expensive.
