Mold is still a huge problem in Philadelphia area homes in the winter time. Just because it’s not hot outside, doesn’t mean mold can’t grow. Mold Inspections are equally important in the Winter months, and often it’s the most ignored time of year for Mold Remediation.
But, why is mold a problem in Winter?
The perception is that the colder temperatures make it less likely that mold removal and mold diagnosis is needed. Whether you live in Philadelphia, or one of the suburbs, you’re not immune because of colder temperatures. In fact, homes with heating systems turned up to higher than normal temperatures and at risk as much or more during this time of the year.
Be sure to keep areas that are moisture prone as dry as possible. Mold thrives in warm, moist environments, such as vents, bathrooms and other similar areas in your residence. This includes keeping everything clean as well. Remember, mold can be killed, but mold that’s not will return, breed, spread and cause more than just structural and visual damage.
Improper mold inspection and mold removal can lead to mold returning and spreading even worse than before clean up. This is because of a fall sense of security from believing the mold has been removed and bad mold prevention practiced that often return.
Remembering that the Winter isn’t a time when mold takes it’s holiday is important in the mold removal battle. Be sure to follow mold prevention tips and don’t put off any mold inspection you might be considering.
