Mold Growth in Your Lilburn Bathroom
Combating Mold Growth Starts With Prevention
A form of fungus which is all around you in the natural environment, mold grows indoors as well where there is moisture that is not dried right away, such as where flooding or leakage is. In your bathroom, mold can easily grow since the conditions in this room are usually wet.
The best way to deal with mold and mold damage is to keep it from growing in the first place. So, how do you do that in the dampest room in your Lilburn home? The key here is ventilation. Mold grows only when moisture cannot get out, and if there is no vent in your bathroom or it is not working correctly, that is the first thing you need to address. If you do have a vent in your bathroom, be sure to turn on the exhaust fan during your shower and afterward as well. You should also leave the bathroom door or windows open after a shower.
SERVPRO has trained experts who can take care of an existing mold problem in your bathroom. It is an issue that you should not try and handle on your own, as regular bleach and household cleaners are not able to get all the mold cleaned up.
The indoor air humidity has much to do with the ability of mold to grow in your home as well. Try and keep the humidity levels between thirty and fifty percent, and not any higher. To help you monitor the humidity levels inside your home, you can purchase a hygrometer from a local hardware store.
Leaving your air conditioning at seventy-four or below if you are going away in the summer months is also a good idea, so the levels of humidity do not rise quickly and end up leaving you with a breeding ground for mold.
You also need to check below all of the sinks in your home, not just your bathroom, once or twice each year to ensure that you do not have any leaks. Even a hint of moisture in the wrong place can trigger a mold outbreak, and mold spreads quickly.
