If water intrusion is not properly dried and if the right conditions exist, water intrusion can lead to the growth of mold which can affect the value of your home or office and even possibly the health of your family or employees. Mold in your place of business can lead to time off, medical expenses and business interruption. Susceptible people who are around mold frequently may experience symptoms such as runny noses, sneezing, coughing, congestion, aggravated asthma, sore throats or inflamed sinus. For people who are immune suppressed or comprised, young, elderly or who have chronic inflammatory lung diseases or severe allergies, exposure to mold can create even more severe problems. Only a doctor can tell you if you suffer from such symptoms and if mold is harmful to you. If you are concerned about the health effects of mold, please consult a physician.

Mold Prevention Recommendations

  • Mold can begin to grow within 72 hours of a water event or high humidity situation. Therefore, to prevent mold you should control the humidity in your home and hire a professional water mitigation company to dry and clean up after ALL floods or water intrusions including toilet and sink overflows and even if the shower curtain was accidentally left outside bathtub (water penetrates to sub surfaces in a matter of seconds and usually cannot be removed in time to prevent mold without professional drying equipment).

  • Make sure your attic is properly ventilated and not over or under insulated.

  • Make sure bathroom exhaust fans are properly vented outside (not into the attic).

  • Make sure the grade slopes away from house so that water does not collect around your foundation.

  • Use gutter down spout extenders to take water far enough away from your house.

  • Do not install drywall to be in contact with your basement concrete floor.

  • Do not use vapor barriers which allow condensation to form.

  • Frequently clean windows, bathroom tile and other surfaces which come in contact with moisture.

  • Have a licensed plumber install all fixtures, faucets and other plumbing connections.

  • Have your plumbing checked periodically for leaks.

  • If you go on vacation, have someone check your home daily.

  • Consider turning your water main off when you go on vacation if your home’s mechanical system allows.

  • Replace sump pumps when needed and have at least one back up and/or an alarm.

  • Make sure your roof shingles are in good condition and do not let ice damns build up.
