Recurring Black Mold Means Concealed Problems
With your repeated efforts using any number of remedies, you may have once thought you were victorious over black mold. To your surprise, it has come back despite thorough cleaning. This may be symptomatic of a more serious infestation at your home in Norman, OK. This mold will continue to grow if you do not treat the core problems.
What Allows Mold to Grow Again
Mold continues to grow as long as it has sources of food and a wet environment. Your home is unavoidably going to have materials where black mold can thrive, so you cannot treat that. A problem you often can remedy, however, is the mold’s access to water. Water can be where it shouldn’t be and feed mold for a number of reasons, including:
• Humid weather and bad insulation
• Condensation from poor airflow regulation
• HVAC problems
• Flooded or wet rooms
• Leaking or broken pipes
By treating water damage, the mold will no longer have ideal conditions to centralize and spread its spores. These locations are often dark and out of sight, so the source of all your recurring mold problems may not be easily locatable.
What Can I Do to Stop Mold
You can help protect your residence with regular inspection and repair of pipes, attics, crawl spaces, sinks, and any HVAC system. By properly securing your home from water infiltration, you can stop the mold from having a place to ever begin.
Without commercial equipment and extensive knowledge for mold remediation, however, you may not be able to fix the problem by yourself. Fortunately, there are services offered by professional mold cleanup crews that can fully remove mold and any associated water problems. This includes mold hidden inside walls and other difficult places. These companies can remove every single spore from your residence to treat the problem instead of just control it.
Black mold doesn’t have to have a hold on your home. Without any spores left to spread, the seemingly never-ending mold growth will finally reach the end of its story.
