A Moldy Situation...

6/26/2020 (Permalink)

Keeping mold out of your home or your business is difficult here in the Willamette Valley.

Mold is everywhere, the air we breathe, and the natural environment we surround ourselves with. It’s when mold grows to an unhealthy level, that it becomes a problem.

When mold crosses the barrier between normal and unhealthy…we see the evidence in visible growth, discoloration, and staining. We also smell the difference in musty air, and feel the difference at times in our sinuses and respiratory systems.

A few tips for keeping mold out of your home or business are as follows…

-Maintaining good humidity levels within your space.

-Fixing leaks from roofs, pipes, windows, and appliances quickly.

-If you have a leak/flood in an area, see that it is properly cleaned and dried (Call SERVPRO for these services!).

-When you shower, try to keep the vent on in the bathroom for at least 30 minutes after you are done, especially if the room has no windows.

Tips on dealing with mold contamination:

-If you find moldy items in your living space, remove them from the areas, they will need to be replaced.

-Mold indicates that there is a moisture problem within your space (make sure you have proper ventilation!).

As always, if you encounter a moldy situation in your home or business, reach out to SERVPRO of Salem West. We can provide quick, efficient, and safe remediation of mold so you can get back to living in a healthy and clean environment.
