Mold Causes
A lot of our customers have questions about mold. The number one question is, "how did it get started?" Well, we ask the customer to take a look aound their property. Check for things like wetness in a dark, secluded area. The fact is that mold requires a wet environment to grow quickly. Mold is not going to increase in a dry area that has plenty of light. We find that mold has a high tendency to develop in areas that contain leaks in the home. This might be in a dark basement or outside the house near the entrance where pipes enter the home. The mold might go undetected for a long time before we are contacted to get rid of the mold damage in Montgomery.

Here is something else to note; mold frequently grows on the top of a roof that leaks. The mold is discovered, after the leak is noticed. There are several other causes for mold too. They include a damp basement that is not well ventilated. This is a mold playground, where mold grows speedily. Homes with a shaky foundation or homes recently flooded are a perfect breeding ground for mold growth.
 
Preventing Mold
Often, our customers want to know how to prevent future mold infestation. Well, we suggest that they take the following precautions to lower the risk of mold growth on their property. Mold requires moisture and a surface to grow on. Mold tends to grow in a place with leaks. For example, on a roof that leaks, in a basement with leaky pipes, in a bathroom with leaky fixtures. We suggest that our customers check their homes for leaks on a regular basis. Fix any leaks discovered immediately. This is the number one way to prevent future mold damage.
