Poor Ventilation Aides Mold Growth
SERVPRO is on the job today in a home with mold in various places throughout house.
Mold in your home doesn’t have to come from a broken pipe or a water loss that wasn’t taken care of fast enough.
The mold being treated today is actually the result of poor ventilation in the home.
Mold was found in several places around the home, but the areas most affected were in fact baseboards and sheet rock that had free standing cabinets placed in front of the wall. This allowed for a dark and undisturbed area in which mold was free to grow.
One of the benefits of modern homes is the fact that they are more air tight and keep out those cold Idaho winters. However, in older homes if not regulated correctly, humidity along with a poorly ventilated area can allow mold unchecked.
If you find mold in your home call SERVPRO and let us put our experience, training, and certification to work for you.
