Preventing Mold

6/30/2023 (Permalink)

When your Lancaster home or business suffers mold damage, it is critical to act immediately since mold can quickly spread throughout your home in as little as 48 hours.  Mold often occurs when moisture is present or when a space is wet and humid.  By frequently inspecting and cleaning the areas of your property that are prone to these conditions, mold growth can be prevented.  These areas include the following:

  • Basements
  • Bathrooms including the shower and floor tiles
  • Window and door molding
  • Refrigerator door seals
  • Areas around your air conditioner

Preventing moisture is key to stopping mold in its tracks.  If mold damage does occur, a mold remediation professional can properly handle the removal and help to prevent further damage.

Attempting to remove the growth on your own can lead to further issues.  Mold spores can travel throughout your home and cause various health issues if proper equipment isn’t set to capture and remove those spores.  SERVPRO of Lancaster East and Southern Lancaster County utilizes our specialized air scrubbers to remove all harmful particles and sustain your healthy indoor air quality. Our advanced mold removal techniques also allow us to help ensure mold is no longer a threat to your property.

We follow guidelines outlined by the IICRC to assess each mold damage situation, perform the proper remediation techniques and restore a structure back to preloss conditions.  SERVPRO of Lancaster East and Southern Lancaster County is here to make any size mold damage disaster “Like it never even happened.”
