Mold Prevention Tips

Mold damage can be health-threatening if you let it get out of control. This common fungus can release spores and toxins into the air that can cause anything from respiratory issues, skin irritations, allergy attacks and even neurological disorders. If you suspect the presence of mold in your property, you need to act quickly to avoid or at least minimize potential consequences.

If we find mold in your property, we’ll promptly remove it and help you prevent its recurrence. The key concept that you have to be aware of when it comes to mold is that it needs moisture to thrive. Areas in your home where there is hidden water and not much ventilation are primary mold growth spots. If you keep things dry and you let an ample amount of fresh air in, you will dramatically reduce the chances of encouraging mold growth.

Here are tips on mold growth prevention:

  • Act fast when you spot a leaking faucet, roof, water heater or toilet. If indoor flooding is not stopped and repaired, water can get into hard-to-reach spots where mold can fester.
  • After flooding happens, have your ceilings, floors and walls checked. Water can seep into small crevices and accumulate. LMS Restoration has state of the art equipment that can detect moisture even if it is concealed by wood or concrete.
  • Make ventilation a vital part of your home setup. Air ducts, windows and exhaust fans help keep air fresh, making your home less hospitable for mold.
  • Basic housecleaning helps a lot. Sweeping floors, vacuuming, dusting and mopping helps get rid of mold spores.
  • Water droplets that linger for long stretches on glass surfaces in your household can activate mold spores and trigger growth. Clean then up as soon as possible.
  • Keep carpets and rugs clean and dry. The dirt and moisture that accumulate in the fibers is a haven for mold.
  • Make sure to air out and dehumidify attics and basements from time to time. These areas of the house can go unvisited for long time frames, allowing mold to grow undisturbed if there is enough moisture.
