Your home's bathroom is where your family typically starts or ends their day. It is the one room everyone uses, even guests, and it is probably the one room we take most for granted. So, if you have a moisture issue in your home's bathroom, it could potentially disrupt your entire family's schedule. So, why concern yourself with moisture? It's a bathroom, after all, so water is a common element. The problem arises when moisture is left untreated and could begin causing damage.

So, what signs may you have water damage in your bathroom that has caused an issue?

  • Musty unexplained odors
  • Visible mold or mildew
  • Warped flooring, baseboards, or walls
  • Stains on walls or ceilings
  • Soft spots on the floor

With so much use, water damage can start quickly and remain unseen. Slow or hidden leaks in your bathroom can often be more expensive than a burst pipe. Slow leaks can cost thousands of dollars because the water has time to migrate throughout your home, possibly causing mold to spread.

What should you do if you suspect you have a water leak in your bathroom?

You Found Mold In Your Sedgefield Home or Business; What Now

8/22/2023 (Permalink)

Mold naturally occurs in our environment. It can enter your home thru doors, windows or even be tracked in on you or your pets. A problem occurs when you have moisture in your Sedgefield home or business. This can happen because of poor ventilation or an undiscovered water leak. Mold colonies can form in as little as two days. So, how can you prevent mold from becoming an issue?

•Stop/repair the water source. Mold only needs three things to grow and thrive: Water, Food, and Time. Disrupting these things can prevent mold from growing.

•If you see visible mold, do not disturb it, or you could risk cross-contamination. Mold spores can be disturbed by a gentle breeze, so to prevent cross-contamination stay out of the affected area and turn off fans and HVAC systems to help prevent spreading.

•Call the experts of SERVPRO of Greensboro West and South to begin the remediation process. Our team of highly trained technicians will arrive at your home or business and explain the process of cleaning your property back to preloss condition.
