Call SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows if you suspect you have a mold issue.

All you need to know about Mold

Mold is a common fungal growth found both indoors and outdoors, entering through open windows, vents, heating, and air conditioning systems. Between places of moisture and the dust bunnies growing on your wallpaper, mold can form almost everywhere. SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows is here to explain some common identifiers of mold and how to control them.

How to Identify Mold

Mold festers in a variety of places so there is no one specific place that you should be particularly wary of. One of the most common signs of mold is the identifiable black or dark spots on surfaces. With that black stain comes the distinguishable musty smell. The smell and spots combined are signs of a potential mold issue.

Mold, however, may not always be easily identifiable. While people react differently to environmental factors, those sensitive to mold specifically may experience nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing and sneezing.

How to Control Mold

The idea of mold may seem daunting. Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to prevent and control mold growth.

  • Be sure to eradicate any moisture in your house immediately after a storm or flood.
  • Check your humidity levels daily.
  • Vent damp areas of your home including the shower, laundry room, and kitchen area.
  • Fix any leaky pipes or windows as soon as possible.

If mold is growing in your home, you need to clean up the mold and fix the moisture problem. You do not need to know the type of mold growing in your home, and no matter what type of mold is present, you should remove it. SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows reminds you that they are always available to help 24/7. No problem is too big or too small to keep your family healthy
