Hello to our STOP Restoration family! We’re wishing everyone a happy Tuesday, and would like to talk about an important topic today; which is mold and mold damage. Mold in homes is a problem that can be easily overlooked, but can be quite common in households. In most situations, mold is caused by water damage that occurs within a home. This is because wherever there is water damage and moisture, there is always a possibility of mold growth and indoor environmental contamination. Mold is a very common problem in homes and buildings, as it is a naturally occurring fungus that grows in many areas and places. It multiples through airborne spores, and it is important for our natural ecosystem. Although it plays a significant role in our environment, it can pose a serious risk within our homes.
Taking the necessary precautions when it comes to reducing the risk of mold appearing in your home is important to ensure the safety of your home. Precautions include reducing the amount of humidity and moisture that is present in the air of your home. Humidity can be caused by the breaths of humans or animals, the use of water when cooking, moisture in the air depending on the weather, any water leaks, or windows or doors that are too tightly sealed. Be aware of the sources of moisture present within your home and keep your home clean and well ventilated to avoid any unnecessary buildup. You can further reduce any buildup of moisture by using a dehumidifier, leaving your windows open to introduce better circulation, regularly cleaning your home, and taking action when a leak or spill occurs.
