Water Sources and Mold Growth
Mold can only grow when there’s adequate moisture. Flooding and leaky pipes are among the leading causes of a widespread mold in residential buildings.
Check The Water Source
The best way to fight the moisture problem and protect your home against further damage during the mold cleanup is to shut off the water. Fix any leaks that your pipes have right away. Then, keep your home moisture free for the duration.
Black mold doesn’t have to devastate your home. Keep in mind that spores are everywhere, so in order to keep the problem isolated, you have to turn off your HVAC system. Additionally, you should always consider shutting down your water to make sure that no more moisture enters the space while it’s being cleaned.
