How Do I Get Rid of Mold in My Dover Home?

1/7/2021 (Permalink)

Picture is of a man holding a saw using it to cut out mold in a floor. Mold spreads quickly, so a minor mold infestation can quickly escalate into a major problem.

Just the sound of the word mold gives a homeowner the shivers. The EPA says, “molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees.” But that doesn’t mean it belongs in your home. And if it is---allow SERVPRO of West Philadelphia give your Minerva home the remediation it desperately needs. But first, let’s consider these facts about mold.

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
