Disaster Prevention

Mold growth can occur at any time of the year, but winter weather usually brings water damages. With these water damages, the possibility of mold growth is imminent. Luckily, there are a few ways you can prevent mold growth from happening this winter. Disaster Cleanup Company has a few tricks to keep your home safe and mold-free!

Keep an Eye on The Humidity

Damp conditions can cause mold growth. If your bathroom or kitchen doesn’t have proper ventilation, mold growth can occur. By providing ventilation or using a dehumidifier, you can ensure your home stays mold-free.

Check Your Basement and Attic

Make a habit of checking your basement and attic at least once a week. Leaks and flooding can quickly happen in your basement or attic, and you will not find out for weeks or months. Water damages can occur during this time, causing mold growth and structural damages.

Keep an Eye out For Ice Dams

Ice dams are dangerous. Not only are they large sheets of ice, but they are also a disaster for water damages. Trapped water leaks into your roof, attic, and walls, causing water damages. These are water damages you likely won’t see until you have mold stains.

Frozen Pipes

If you have a frozen pipe, don’t wait for it to thaw; call a professional. Waiting can only make matters worse. You can end up with major water damages from a single frozen pipe that bursts.

If you notice a musty smell or see mold stains, call a disaster cleanup company. It means you already have an overgrowth of mold and that there are water damages somewhere on your property. A professional will be able to find the water damages, repair the problem, and remove all mold. Attempting to remove the mold yourself can result in illnesses, and there is a chance that you will leave undetected mold behind. If this happens, it will continue to grow.
