What Can I Do To Stop Mold Growth
Control the moisture. If your bathroom fan does not operate with the light switch, remember to turn it on when you take a shower. If you do not have a bathroom fan then open a window, the top sash is best because hot air rises. When you have a plumbing leak fix the leak ASAP and remove the water and force dry the area. When carpet is involved call an IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certified carpet cleaning company to extract the water and dry the carpet. Mold cannot grow and populate without moisture, when we remove the moisture we stop the growth, however some mold spores can continue to affect our health even after they are no longer viable. If you believe your home is making you sick and you feel mold is the reason, Call Aztec Home Services for a mold and moisture evaluation.
