Mold can be good, but it can also be very bad. Mold helps in making medicine like penicillin but it can be very bad because it can grow undetected in your home. Once it is found, it can be cleaned but never fully erased. It can grow anywhere: on the carpet, clothing, food, and even paper. A lot of times mold contamination will happen in places that you can’t see like: behind wall paper, inside walls and around pipes, under the carpet, and under ceiling tiles. Unfortunately, you can’t mold proof your home, but you can make it mold resistant. Preventing mold from growing or spreading might be as simple as pulling up the carpet in a wet basement, installing mold resistant products, or repairing damaged gutters. Knowing the steps and how to prevent mold from growing in your home can save you thousands of dollars down the road.
Here are a few ways to prevent mold from growing in your home:
If you have found surface mold in your home, don’t rely on DIY methods of cleaning and removal. If mold has become visible around window sills, on the bathroom ceiling, or around the caulking in your bath or shower, then you can guarantee there is a much bigger mold contamination problem under the surface.
Many people rely on bleach cleaners to destroy surface mold and while the bleach may help eliminate some of the surface mold problems, but it will not penetrate deep into the source of the mold problem and completely remove it.
For mold contamination in your home, contact professional mold removal experts like the certified restoration technicians at Complete DKI. Certified techs have been trained and educated to find the source of the mold problem and determine what course of action is needed to completely eradicate the problem. By calling a professional mold remediation team, you will be saving yourself a lot of time and money in the future.
