Mold Growth After a Monsoon Storm
Storms produce several constant issues for any property owner. A main problem brought on by storms is the moisture which contributes to a lot of mold growth that requires professional remediation. There are some methods to help prevent the mold growth from causing any damages from occurring after a monsoon storm that are pretty effective.
Mold growth has a couple of primary sources from which it gets it nutrients from which are wood and moisture. With many properties having wood as a major element, this serves as a prime breeding ground for mold to grow and multiply.
Mold Growth Challenging Property Owners
Many property owners find it challenging to keep up with regular maintenance of the property and the property has been affected by storm damages already, leaving holes that allow moisture in leading to mold growth.
Basements within residential homes is a common place where mold will grow or in the attic too. In fact attics can have a significant mold problem after a monsoon storm. When a roof is compromised by holes or gaps, moisture will get into the area and remain trapped causing mold and mold spores.
Mold will grow whenever or wherever there is moisture present and after a monsoon storm, the ground surrounding the property is saturated with moisture.As moisture permeates throughout the property, it will seek out sources of nutrients such as wood based elements within the structure.
Mold Mitigation and Removal
Mitigating mold damage after a monsoon storm, if not done properly, can create multiple colonies of mold growth. When not appropriately dried out entirely, a consistent mold problem becomes an issue.
