As you may know, mold growth is fueled by moisture. Thus, a recent event causing water damage – such as flooding or leaking – has probably resulted in a mold issue within your home or building. After having to address the water damage, the last thing you want to have to deal with is mold growth. Hopefully, the resulting mold is easy to take care of. If it is a bigger issue than you are equipped to handle, however, Advanced Mold Diagnostics is prepared to provide mold removal Malvern residents can rely on.
Here at Advanced Mold Diagnostics, we truly care about our customers’ well being. So, in addition to providing the top mold removal Malvern can get, we also offer advice that will help you address your mold issue as much as you can on your own. Here are some tips for tackling mold issues caused by water damage.
First of all, you will need to take care of the water/leak/humidity problem before you can address the mold that it caused. It goes without saying that you will need to get rid of all standing water if there is any in your home or building. Get your hands on a wet vacuum and find a way to drain the flooded area. After removal of standing water, open windows, turn on fans, and run your dehumidifier. If the severity of the water damage is more than you can handle, Advanced Mold Diagnostics offers professional water removal and drying services.
The next thing you will want to do is focus on any porous surfaces. If rugs or soft furniture were damaged, either throw them away or have them dried and repaired. Next, scrub your walls with a solution made up of vinegar and water (one part distilled white vinegar and nine parts water). After scrubbing, spray only the vinegar onto the walls to make sure the mold is killed at its root. Note that when cleaning walls, you will want to scrub at least a foot above where the water hit to ensure that you cover all potentially affected areas.
After cleaning walls, you will want to clean the bases of any affected wood furniture by wiping them with denatured alcohol and then spraying with disinfectant. Finally, take care of any additional affected porous items like towels, cushions, and curtains by washing them at the highest possible temperatures they can handle.
These are just some tips that can help you in the event of water damage, but you may still need mold removal in Malvern. If so, call on Advanced Mold Diagnostics for all of your mold removal needs!
