How To Prevent Mold

Many business owners are aware that water damage can cause mold growth. Sometimes, mold is visible. Other times, it lurks where it cannot be seen. Certain types of mold spores can travel easily through the air, making them difficult to eradicate. If you have experienced unwanted dampness and odor in Malibu,  there are several things you can do to deter mold from growing.

Where To Focus Your Efforts

Mold can grow anywhere where  is moisture or  water gathers. To reduce the chance of mold growing in your residence or office building, focus on the areas that are most likely to get wet:

  • Basements
  • Bathrooms
  • Windowsills
  • Laundry room
  • Kitchens

Which Prevention Methods Help
There are several methods that can help with mold prevention in high-risk places. If possible, use mold-resistant building materials, which are less hospitable to mold. Maintain proper ventilation and appropriate humidity levels throughout your building to help create an environment less hospitable to mold.

How To Dry Wet Areas
If prevention measures fail and areas get wet, there are actions you can take to prevent mold growth. Wet items that can be removed, such as rugs, should be removed and dried as quickly as possible. Flooring, walls and other items that cannot be easily removed can be dried with increased air circulation. Circulation can be increased by opening windows and doors.More intense water saturation may need to be dried with professional equipment like commercial drying fans and dehumidifiers.

The best way to prevent mold is to keep your building dry. However, if areas become wet or moist, small jobs can be taken care of with do-it-yourself methods. When water damage is more severe, it may require the help of professional mold remediation specialists
