In the humid south Florida climate, moisture can accumulate in your home, allowing mold to grow. When thinking about mold removal in your Wellington, FL home, there are several areas of your home worth inspecting first. Because mold grows quickly and exposure can lead to health problems, it is imperative that you understand which areas of your home are particularly prone to mold growth. The air quality professionals at Envirotech can ensure that mold is removed from your home quickly and safely.
Mold thrives in moist and dark conditions. Combating the growth of mold means discovering those areas of your home which are particularly moist. Due to their extensive plumbing, bathrooms and kitchens require sufficient ventilation and drainage systems in order to properly circulate air in and out. If you see black spots around drains, on the shower ceiling, or behind the toilet, it might indicate a more systemic problem. Other spots to check include any entrances or exits to the house, including exterior doors and windows, as well as any air intake points. Mold can grow on virtually any moist surface: drywall, insulation products, carpet, fabric and upholstery, wallpaper, and paint. In many cases, you can both see and smell mold, but it often goes undetected for long periods of time when it exists behind walls or in other hard-to-reach spots.
If your home has ever suffered flood damage, major plumbing accidents, or any other type of water-based damage, your Wellington, FL home may have a mold problem. Remember that mold problems are notoriously difficult to resolve and that they require the care and expertise of a specialist. If you are suffering from unexpected coughing, sneezing, headaches, or rashes caused by household mold, do not wait to call a mold removal expert. For expert service, call Envirotech today.
