Saving Your Home From Black Mold!
Mold in a Florida home can be a very serious ordeal. While there are several things that can affect whether your home has mold growing or not, the development of mold comes down to just a few things.
If you are diligent about your problems and take immediate action, most of the time you can prevent mold from occurring. However, if you don't take care of the problem, you may never be able to get rid of the mold. Mold, if not remediated properly will continue to come back, even if you repair the area that was moldy or decayed. This is why it's crucial to take care of the issue in a timely fashion to ensure that your home isn't the cause of expensive repairs.
Where Does Mold Come From?
Mold damage in Seminole County doesn't just come from nowhere. There are mold spores all around you. They come from outside in. Mold spores can float in through an open door or window or even be brought into your home from your clothes. Once mold spores settle, if they find a wet area in your home, they can start to grow.
The best way to deter microbial growth is by eliminating any leaks on the siding, roofing, and windows that might let moisture into your home. Check and repair leaky sinks immediately to prevent moisture build up, and turn on exhaust fans when you're steaming up the house. Poor ventilation and airflow cause microbial growth as well. When areas are well ventilated, mold spores have a difficult time sticking to counter tops, walls, and floors.
