Mold Types

The cities of the Victor Valley are loaded with businesses. Whether you’re looking to grab a milkshake and a cheeseburger, file taxes, go to a dentist, or see a movie, you can find what you’re looking for in this little slice of paradise. Unfortunately, no matter where you go, mold does not discriminate.

Mold exists everywhere, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Penicillin is a common medicine that saves lives and kills infections. Guess what? Mold is the primary ingredient. Blue cheese, which is the best of the cheeses, is mold. Blue cheese is essential - best when combined with buffalo wings (can you tell I am hungry?). Mold thrives in warm, moist environments with little more than air. It eats away at everything it comes into contact with, potentially affecting the structural integrity of a property.

Moisture Control

The key to preventing mold growth is to keep things dry. Mold thrives in warm, moist environments. As a business owner, it is important to be mindful of areas that may collect moisture. If you're unsure of the water in your business’s walls, ceilings, or flooring, call SERVPRO of Hesperia / Apple Valley. We use electronic moisture detectors to see exactly how much moisture is in your structure.

Here are some hot tips for spotting mold.

Black mold looks like little black dots.

Be on the lookout for those, as it is likely black mold which is hazardous.

Odor + Health Symptoms

Mold smells pretty bad. The trademark earthen / dirt smell is almost unmistakable. If mold is inhaled, symptoms like coughing, skin irritations, and a runny nose can occur. Pay attention to how you feel.
