Mold removal leads to a lot of repairs, and advertising for those services is on the rise. It’s not just homeowners who need help with mold damage. Commercial buildings also suffer from the costs that come along with it — both in terms of dollars spent and customer goodwill lost from being less appealing than they could be.
According to HomeAdvisor, “There are several ways you can protect your home or business against mold growth: First, ensure adequate ventilation by opening windows when using appliances such as dishwashers or clothes dryers.” Other tips include keeping humidity below 60%, reducing air leaks where possible through caulking joints between window frames and siding, removing excess moisture (e.g., standing water) promptly, installing exhaust fans in kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms; sealing cracks and crevices to help prevent air from getting into the house.
In addition to following these precautions, it’s important for home or business owners who experience water damage due to a flood or pipe breakage — which could cause mold growth if not addressed quickly–to call qualified professionals as soon as possible. Mold removal is an expensive expense that can be prevented by taking some time before disaster strikes of addressing potential problems with your building.”
– You should keep humidity below 60% when living in certain climates (or when having pets) because high levels will promote mold growth
– When pests are present, you should clean regularly so they don’t bring dirt and debris indoors where high levels of humidity are present
– You can also hire a professional to inspect your home for these problems before they become an issue.
