Mold is not a fun thing to encounter. It can lurk off furniture and hint off a bad odor. If you think you have mold, call SERVPRO to help today!

SERVPRO Evaluates Mold Quickly For Best Remediation Results

Mold damage is no joke. If you are not proactive, mold can wreak havoc on your Watertown property. However, if you know how to spot the early signs of mold growth, you can prevent the situation from turning into a total catastrophe.
Mold remediation experts here at SERVPRO stand the best chance to eliminate mold if they are called upon as soon as mold damage is seen on your Watertown property. Here are few things to help you identify mold damage and seek professional help.

  • Know where mold grows

Mold loves moisture and organic matter. The most common places for mold growth are bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens where there is plenty of both moisture and organic matter for the mold to feed on. Also, make sure that you check your attics for leakage and mold growth. Other places to look for mold include windowsills, ducts, basements and crawl spaces.

  • Adjust the humidity of your home

Getting the right sized AC unit and dehumidifier is the key to preventing excessive moisture. The size of the AC and dehumidifier will depend on both the size of your home and the climate as well. If you live in a humid climate, make sure that you have the right sized dehumidification system to combat the excessive moisture. A relative humidity of 85% or more for prolonged periods can be inviting for mold growth. Make sure that you monitor the humidity of your property even when you are not at home.

  • Don’t ignore small spots or moldy odor

Little spots of mold can be easily missed, especially if they are present in corners and cracks. Make sure that you pay close attention to these places and call on the professionals here at SERVPRO as soon as you see them. Also, don't ignore any moldy smell in your home. If your crawlspace or basement smells like mold, seek professional help as soon as you can.
SERVPRO mold experts are trained and certified professionals and can help you get your mold problems under control in no time. They stand the best chance if they spring into action at the earliest stage.
