Preventative Measures Mitigate Mold Growth in Ooltewah

SERVPRO Suggests Preventions Keep Mold Damage in Check

Mold exists naturally, in our air, the surrounding atmosphere and practically anywhere else that you can imagine. The problem isn't that mold spores exist; it's that if left unmitigated, allergenic molds develop that may cause health effects that strike our young and elderly family members the most.
There are professionals at your disposal in Ooltewah who specialize in mold damage remediation and restoration to your property. We want to assist you with the issues that are plaguing your home, call our professionally trained staff today.
SERVPRO staff can answer your questions regarding suspicious black spots, stains, rotted wood or drywall and even have the answers to assist with water leaks or subsequent damage caused by a flood. We want to educate you about the actual effects of the existence of mold in your home.
Technicians at SERVPRO highly recommend maintaining low humidity levels in every area of your home. Air conditioners and dehumidifiers offer assistance in achieving a consistent healthy 30% to 50% humidity. You would also benefit from improving the ventilation of your crawl spaces and storage areas. Reduce the risks of accumulating condensation on windows, pipes, and exterior walls by installing the proper insulation.
SERVPRO staff also suggest doing regular visual checks throughout your home where you may find leaky pipes and other areas that may be prone to moisture, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and even basements. You can prevent moisture and excess water from entering your basement and crawl spaces by performing low-cost maintenance tasks to repair holes and cracks in your walls or foundation while using exterior landscaping techniques to direct water away from your home.
Keep your gutters and drain pipes free of clutter so that they don't get clogged causing water to overflow into areas that are unprotected. You would also benefit from replacing old worn out plastic hoses with higher-quality steel hose options that will last longer and perform better.
