Moisture Concerns, Call Us

Being in damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or no effects at all.  Mold is tricky like that. Your odds of having issues, however, goes up near wooded areas, compost heaps, and old structures with outdated or poor plumbing.

Molds are part of nature. Mold plays a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees but indoors, mold can wreak havoc and should definitely be monitored and avoided if at all possible. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through the air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture in your home. If mold is a problem in your home, chances are there is a water problem.

It is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

Mold gradually destroy the things it grows on. You can prevent damage to your home and furnishings, save money, and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.

If you suspect you have a moisture issue in your home or business call SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley/Barstow/Twentynine Palms to investigate at 909-548-3191
