Recovering From Mold Growth
Recovering from a mold infestation is no easy feat! Mold and mildew are very pesky and hard to completely get rid of. Once we at SERVPRO of East Honolulu have finished our jobs, there are tasks one can do to make sure that we don't have to come back.
- Always dry it up
After remediation there are bound to still be mold spores whether there are dormant or floating in the air. When your basement leaks or there is any spill water/spills immediately clean it up. These spores can be dormant for years and only need the right amount of moisture to be revived. Here in East Honolulu, humidity is inevitable but moisture spots and wetness doesn't have to be!
- Bathroom Humidity
Bathrooms are the best habitat for growing mold! Make sure that there is a good ventilation system in your bathroom. If there is excess pools of water after showering or bathing... clean them up!
Again, the best prevention is not activating mold spores, fabrics tend to allow mold spores to cling. Keep your fabrics clean and dry, especially around the area that was your problem area.
Keep a remediation plan if there is an occurring mold problem, or if you got a mold remediation done. This way you'll know the vulnerable spots in your home/business area and how to prevent a mold buildup.
