Moisture Removal Prevents Mold and Potential Health Problems in Your Home
Humidity and moisture removal is important after water damage has been assessed. When we have determined the full extent of the water damage (both obvious and unseen), we remove the damaged carpet or flooring and dry out the area. Water damage can often lead to mold growth. After we dry out the affected area, we disinfect it and filter the air.
Window Moisture and Humidity Problems?
Are you noticing moisture and humidity condensation on your windows? This happens mainly in the cold weather climate seasons. Moisture builds up on your windows from the outdoor cold and the warm indoor temperatures. This can quickly lead to mold buildup.
Hot and humid climates, especially in a rainy season, will also lead to mold growth. This is due to the high humidity outside and the cool temperatures indoors.
In both these scenarios, mold may be building up in the drywall surrounding areas. This may be seen or unseen. Heavy moisture can carry mold spores for you to breath in. Prolonged exposure to mold can cause serious health risks to you and your family.
Making Prevention a Priority
Prevention and preparedness is the best weapon for your home. We care about you and your loved ones and the memories you’ve built. There are several ways you can make sure that your home is as protected as possible in case a disaster occurs. The best way you can do this, is by creating an environment that helps supports moisture removal when necessary.
Tips for Prevention
- Keep furniture away from vents or blocking windows.
- Let as much light into your home as possible.
- Circulate fresh air on a daily basis, even for short periods during the winter.
- For a room that’s hot and humid from moisture, such as the kitchen, make sure you change the hood vent filters and keep the hood clean.
- It is important that your bathroom has a working ventilation fan. Always start it before showering, as it will remove moisture from the house.
