If there are ongoing moisture problems in your home or building, it is critical to have an inspection and hire an IICRC mold remediator professional to handle the issue. Inevitably, mold growth will happen if moisture is not controlled, and the risks to your health and home are in jeopardy.
Why Remove Mold?
Molds are found in every environment. Mold spores reproduce rapidly when moisture is present. An institute of medicine study found excessive dampness indoors encourages the growth of molds. It is essential to clean up existing indoor mold growth to prevent potential health concerns, increase your property's appeal, and retain its value. A clean, fresh-smelling home sells faster.
Common Causes Of Mold Growth
- Persistent Condensation
- Consistent Humidity
- Leaky water pipes and plumbing fixtures
- Flood damage that was improperly cleaned up
- Leaking roofs or windows
- Improper drainage of HVAC systems

Prevention Of Mold In Ohio And Pennsylvania
Reduce indoor humidity (30-60% ) to decrease mold growth by venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside; using air conditioners and de-humidifiers; increasing ventilation; and using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing, and cleaning.
Clean and dry any damp building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
In areas with a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (i.e., by drinking fountains, classroom sinks, or concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).
Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry thoroughly. Absorbent materials, such as moldy ceiling tiles, may need to be replaced.
