What a surprise…It’s raining in Geauga County again!
The relationship between rain and mold is simple: Mold spores attach themselves to damp surfaces. When it rains or even when the air is particularly humid, surfaces outside your home or business can become damp, allowing for mold spores to latch on and grow. Anywhere you have leaks, the rain can saturate building materials and cause mold to grow.
SERVPRO of Geauga County specializes in helping home and business owners with preventative measures that will, in the long run, prevent extensive mold and mildew growth even during the rainiest of seasons!
When black mold is growing outside your home, it is less of a threat because your family members won’t breathe in the spores as often as they would if the mold was inside. But black mold outside usually finds a way into our homes
If you think you have a black mold infestation, your main goal should not be simply removing the black mold. While you definitely want to do that, your bigger priority should be to remove the moisture that’s giving the mold the ability to grow. Remember, mold needs a damp environment to thrive. If you take that away, the mold will not grow. Tackling the source of the dampness rather than just the mold itself will take care of the problem in the long run.
If you suspect that your home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Geauga County can inspect, assess and remediate your property. 440-564-7266 or visit http://www.SERVPROgeaugacounty.com
