Unfortunately, mold and mildew growth are some of the most common issues that homeowners deal with. When it comes to these pesky little microbial growths, they can grow and fester on anything they can attach themselves to.
During their growth, they will wreak havoc on your home in multiple ways. Champion Home Services is here to educate San Antonio residents on what mold can do to their homes, their health and how to prevent it from growing in their space.
How Can Mold Harm Me?
Musty odors, poor indoor air quality, wood decay and more can occur because of mold growth. It’s more than just the unpleasant smells — mold can cause severe damage to your respiratory system. This can damage your immune system by leading to diseases like bronchitis, along with chronic indoor allergy symptoms.
Allergy symptoms like sneezing and coughing, nasal congestion and asthma can also occur. Allergy symptoms amplify in severity depending on the type of mold you have growing in your space. If it gets too bad, it can even cause infections of the lungs and life-threatening health issues.
Where Does Mold Like To Grow?
Mold can grow on any surface of your home, in any room. However, some places are more attractive to mold and help it grow. Areas prone to moisture, such as windows, pipes and bathrooms, are all prime-time spots for mold to develop.
Ceiling tiles, drywall, carpet and upholstery are also hot spots for mildew. This means there are areas throughout your home that’s prime real estate for mold growth. The best solution for mold growth is to know how to prevent it.
How Can I Prevent Mold Growth In My Home?
There are many ways to help prevent mold growth in your home. The most effective way to help stop it is by installing REME Halo UV lights. These lights allow for breaking up and drying out mildew and sterilizing the area.
These lights are great for high-humidity areas. Air purifiers will also help break down everyday air pollutants like bacteria and odors and provide a consistent airflow to keep your home dry and comfortable.
