Mold and Your Home
Mold is found both indoors and outdoors. Mold can enter your home through doorways, windows, vents and heating and air conditioning systems. Mold from outside can also attach to your clothes, shoes and bags and be carried inside.
Mold will grow in places that have a lot of moisture, like leaks in your roof, windows or pipes and areas that had flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, drywall and wood products.
Control Mold In Your House
You can control mold growth in your home by:
*Controlling humidity levels.
*Fixing leaks in roofs, windows and pipes.
*Cleaning thoroughly after a flood.
*Ventilating showers, laundry rooms and cooking areas.
If mold is growing in your home, you need to clean up and mold and fix the moisture problem. If there is a large area of mold, call SERVPRO of Oak Park-River Forest to remove it properly and safely.
