A leaky roof, or clogged gutters on a building can allow excess water to enter the home. When this water spreads across ceilings and works its way into wood a mold problem may result. The presence of mold can go undetected or hidden behind drywall or baseboards. Leaky pipes under sinks can also provide the ideal environment for mold to thrive. Mold remediation includes the identification of the mold, an assessment of the severity and the necessary removal techniques.
Keeping carpets clean with professional steam cleaning can help reduce the risk, as will cleaning kitchens and bathrooms with bleach. Not allowing water to collect on counter-tops or any surface is a good part of keeping mold at bay, but a professional mold remediation service may be necessary once the problem has developed and spread to other areas.
