Mold growing by bathroom window Don't let mold grow on you! Call SERVPRO!

Finding mold in your home is not as uncommon as you may think. Mold can grow throughout your home, but most commonly in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and even in your basement. What do these rooms all have in common? They all typically have an active source of moisture which enables bacterial growth. This bacterial growth can be seen on walls, ceilings, carpets, and even on furniture.

There are many ways you can prevent mold from growing in your home. Here are a few tips:

  • Routinely check for any leaks or discolored spots in your home. A small leak now could lead to a substantial amount of bacterial growth if not addressed immediately. 
  • Consult a mold expert, like SERVPRO, to test or analyze leaks or signs of bacterial growth. 

 In small amounts, mold is usually harmless, but when it comes in contact with an active source of moisture in your home, it can start to grow out of control. When a home suffers a water damage event, a mold infestation can quickly arise and spread throughout a home in 48-72 hours. If you see signs of mold, contact us today at 323-552-5600 or click here for more information about our mold remediation and restoration process.
