When it comes to your home or commercial property, nothing strikes a chord of fear into a property owner like a certain four-letter word: MOLD. Mold can grow easily and without much provocation. It also likes dark and damp areas, making it easy to get and hard to find. Once you’ve had the experience of mold damage, you want to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. Here at AdvantaClean of West Knoxville, we have come up with a few ways for you to handle any mold damage, as well as how to prevent it from occurring again in the future.

If you discover mold damage, you should:

  • Call for a mold inspection from a professional abatement team.
  • Contain the area as much as possible with plastic sheeting.
  • Have professionals clean the areas that can be cleaned, and then remove items that cannot be cleaned, such as drywall, insulation or carpeting.
  • Repair any moisture or water problems that are creating a mold-friendly environment.

Once you have had mold damage professionally restored, take the following preventative measures:

  • Keep moist areas of your home clean and dry. De-humidifiers, fans, and vents all work well to keep moisture levels in the area to a minimum.
  • Repair any leaks you might have.
  • Install a sump pump with a battery back-up power source.
  • Keep a watchful eye on mold-prone areas like crawlspaces, basements, under sinks, and any area where water is present.

Mold damage can be costly and a hassle to treat, so if you find mold, make sure to treat it quickly. And then, make sure to take preventative steps to keep your home or business mold-free in the future!
