So, the snow begins to melt and we think we are in the clearing. But, what lurks behind the end of a snowfall? The unfortunate answer is MOLD. Mold can be devastating to you and to your home. Perhaps it is not evident right now, but once the conditions are safe enough for the crews begin to do vast roof repair, this is what many of them may find in your home.
Molds exist in most places and indoors; mold can pose a number of issues and even health risks. At the very least, it is nasty and annoying. Mold lives in moist areas and you can often find it in many spots in your home: duct work, exhaust fans, basements and garages and in the ceilings and walls where water has leaked in from the rooftops.
The mold you see is not the problem; it’s the mold you cannot see that can make your life miserable. We suggest that you start thinking about this potential now because if there is mold in your setting, you will have to find the source that caused it and get rid of the water problem. Mold has a sure thing – it will return if not addressed and resolved. For more information on how you can take proper precautions during these times, call Reg or Tom at 703-916-8372.
