Tips For Controlling Mold Damage in Your Paradise Valley Home
Keeping Mold Out of the Home in Paradise Valley
Even in the hottest, driest parts of the year, mold damage can still affect Paradise Valley homes. Safeguarding your home against mold infestations might not be an easy feat, but it is one that can save you thousands of dollars in restoration and repair costs later on in life. When things go wrong, and mold gains ground in your home, SERVPRO Franchise professionals are there to help, but before that day comes to pass (or after we finish our remediation work), there are some things that you can do to help keep your home free of spores.
Control the Water
Very few types of mold damage in Paradise Valley can develop into a substantial problem without the help of a large amount of water. Mold spores, like other living things, require both food and water to grow and reproduce, but while food sources are plentiful in every American home, water may be in short supply. When a leak springs somewhere in the home or a flood soaks the floor of a room, these events can give opportunistic mold spores the chance to start growing and spreading in your home. Keeping your plumbing in good working order is the single most crucial step towards a mold-free home.
Take Care of Problems Immediately
If mold does start to grow in your home, you should never wait to call a certified remediation company. Our services are usually fast, inexpensive and non-intrusive for situations in which we arrive before the fungus has a chance to spread widely throughout the home. However, just a single day can give many species of mold the opportunity to grow exponentially and require much more time and cost intensive safety and cleanup procedures. Early warning signs of mold growth include discoloration around a moist area or an unusual white patch on a surface somewhere in the home.
