Mold Remediation Reduce The Risk Of Mold Damage In Your Miami Laundry Room Damp Laundry Can Develop Mold Growth in Your Miami Home

Mold Growth in Miami? Call SERVPRO for Remediation


Your laundry room is an ideal breeding ground for mold. The combination of a damp environment with high humidity and the heat from a washer or dryer makes an environment that spores just love. Mold can damage soft materials beyond repair and can also cause structural damage or even health effects. That is why it is important to do all you can to deter mold growth in your home.
 
There are steps you can take to reduce the risk of mold damage in your Miami laundry room. SERVPRO experts recommend the following actions.
 
Do Your Laundry Promptly
Damp and dirty laundry is an inviting prospect for mold spores to grow into patches. Do not give them a place to grow. Make sure that laundry is done regularly and not allowed to pile up. Thorough drying is also important. Wet laundry is still a potential home for fungus even if it is clean. Hang clothes outside to dry or use a dryer.
 
Clean Regularly
Keep surfaces clean and dry as much as possible, so that mold has less chance to breed. Be diligent for signs of mold. A disinfectant solution is an effective cleaning option that also helps reduce the chances of mold proliferation.
 
Check Your Appliances
Laundry room leaks or drips provide even more of an opportunity for fungal growth. A leak that seeps into carpets, walls or floors encourages mildew to grow in those places and cause structural damage. Check your appliances regularly and fix any leaks and replace broken drainage hoses or fixtures at once.
 
Call In The Experts
Once mold is present expert help is the best way to deal with it. As soon as you see signs of mold growth we recommend you put in a call to SERVPRO. Upon arrival, our IICRC-certified experts establish a containment zone. Plastic sheeting keeps mold from spreading throughout your house. Our teams come equipped with negative air machines which pull contaminated air through ducts and exhaust it outside your home.
 
After establishing containment, our experts set to work thoroughly cleaning your laundry room. Powerful HEPA vacuums remove loose spores. Vacuuming is followed by cleaning using abrasion, scrubbing, detergents and damp wiping, depending upon the surface to be cleaned. We also try to clean and restore, and not replace mold damaged elements as a cornerstone of our remediation service.
