Preventing Mold in Rochester, Buffalo & Syracuse, NY

Mold Prevention Services in Metro Detroit Michigan

It’s not a good idea to leave common house mold untreated. House mold comes in three classes, and each type affects your health differently. The three kinds of mold that you often see are:

Allergenic Molds

Molds that are in the allergenic category aren’t life-threatening to most, but they can pose a problem for individuals with asthma or allergies. Allergenic molds can trigger allergic reactions and make your property’s environment uncomfortable.

Pathogenic Molds

Pathogenic molds are dangerous for those who have a weak or compromised immune system. Being exposed to pathogenic mold for too long can cause hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Pathogenic molds can also grow in the lungs.

Toxigenic or Toxic Molds

In general, the presence of toxic molds is a serious problem that needs to be remediated quickly. Toxic molds are known to generate mycotoxin, a toxic substance that causes cancer. One example of toxic mold is black mold.

To avoid the dangers of mold, the first thing you need to remember is to reduce or eliminate moisture in your property. Moisture encourages mold growth and several other problems that can damage your property. Preventing mold is quite simple, and it can be done by applying the following techniques: 

Reduce Condensation

Condensation, or the process of turning atmospheric moisture into water vapor, typically occurs on cold surfaces like metal pipes. To reduce the damage caused by condensation, you can protect your basement and crawl space by having them insulated and encapsulated. The materials used in both insulation and encapsulation act as vapor barriers that keep your basement and crawl space free from excess moisture and humidity.

Seal Water Leaks

Water leaks are the biggest contributors to indoor flooding and excess moisture. If you spot a water leak on your roof or plumbing, repair it immediately. You can consult non-traditional methods to fix the problem, but call the professionals if the leak is too difficult to seal. The experts have the necessary tools and trained technicians who can patch the leak properly and fast.

Basement Dehumidifier and Sump Pump

If you want to efficiently reduce or eliminate the moisture levels in your property, consider installing a dehumidifier and sump pump in your basement. The dehumidifier extracts humidity in the air, reducing water vapors. A sump pump, on the other hand, sucks floodwater from its basin and drains moisture away from your property.
