As Columbus Ohio mold damage contractors, Dry Patrol Columbus works with clients to both prevent and deal with the toxic results of water damage. Dry Patrol Columbus offers the following tips for homeowners:
- Proactively deal with moisture issues such as leaks and excess humidity. Any indication of the excess moisture should be addressed immediately to avoid health risks and property damage. In order to be active, mold requires nutrients, moisture and time left to develop during periods of increased temperatures.
- Mold growth is not always visible. Mildew, sometimes detectable through scent, it is a form of mold during early stages of development. Call a professional to properly assess the origin of the smell.
- Mold poses a health risk to everyone, although those most sensitive include pregnant women, the elderly, and children under the age of six years old.
- Do not disturb visible growth of mold without a professional. Dry Patrol Columbus professionals are highly trained technicians armed with the appropriate tools and gear to effectively remove mold without causing further damage or risk to the inhabitants of the home or space.
- Bleach does not kill mold. There are appropriate steps taken by professionals to properly kill mold.
Daughtry adds, “A small crack in a pipe can leak up to 250 gallons in a day. There does not have to be a flood or storm in order for mold to develop in the home or business.”
