Mold: a four-letter word that spells big trouble for homeowners. It lurks in damp corners, silently spreading and potentially causing health issues. Here’s how you can preemptively strike against mold:

  1. Monitor Humidity: Keep indoor humidity below 60%.
  2. Ventilate: Ensure bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms are well-ventilated.
  3. Inspect for Leaks: Regularly check pipes and fixtures for leaks and repair promptly.
  4. Dry Wet Areas: Wipe up spills and dry out wet areas within 24-48 hours.
  5. Proper Sealing: Seal windows and doors to prevent moisture seepage.
  6. Routine Inspections: Have a professional inspect your home annually, especially if you’ve had water damage in the past.

By following these steps, you can maintain a mold-resistant home. If you suspect mold growth, contact SERVPRO of Wood River Valley for expert remediation services. Let’s keep your home safe and sound, together.
