The mold removal experts at ServiceMaster by ARTec want to keep your Ardmore, PA home healthy and safe from the damaging impact of mold.
Today we’re going to talk about several common causes of mold growth in your home. If you’ve encountered any of these problems listed below, contact us today to learn more about our mold removal process and have us inspect your home.
- Leaking pipes – Water leaking from your pipes is one of the most common causes of mold growth. The problem is that all of your pipes aren’t visible. There can be leaky pipes inside of your walls that go undetected and begin to cause mold growth.
- Leaks in your roof – Similar to leaking pipes, leaks in your roof can go undetected because the moisture will accumulate in an area you probably don’t check often, which might be your attic. It’s smart to check your attic on a regular basis and inspect the ceiling. If your ceiling is leaking and you notice signs of water damage or mold growth, contact the mold removal experts at ServiceMaster by ARTec as soon as possible.
- Condensation – This is more common in the cold winter months. Cold surfaces create condensation. Condensation can occur on your pipes as well as concrete floors, even if they’re covered by carpet. The areas where condensation occurs can lead to mold growth because of the moisture that accumulates.
- Damp Basements – Basements can be a potential breeding ground for mold. They’re usually colder areas, which can lead to the condensation problem we just listed above. The lack of ventilation can also cause moisture to accumulate. It’s also an area that may not be checked thoroughly and often.
