How to Prevent Mold Growth

7/12/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is more than a pest; it can be dangerous. Mold in a home can cause health effects. In order to prevent these health effects and mold in general, we have a few tips to prevent the growth of mold in your home.

  1. Dry wet areas immediately. Mold needs moisture to grow. By drying wet areas immediately, it eliminates the surface for mold to grow.
  2. Make sure your home is properly ventilated. When a home isn't properly ventilated, appliances that produce moisture can also be the cause of mold.
  3. Keep mold off of household plants. Due to the moisture in the soil, plants are a perfect place for mold to grow and then eventually, spread. Avoid this by monitoring your plants and making sure they stay mold free.

In the event you do encounter mold, give SERVPRO of Western Union County a call at (908) 791-9177 so we can help.
