Identifying and Treating Mold Growth Mold can grow in a wide variety of places throughout your home. When you suspect that there is mold growing in your home, you should be sure that you check the most common areas for mold before you call in a professional to find the mold for you. How the Mold Creeps in Many people find that mold grows on the walls and carpets throughout their Sammamish home. Usually, the most common reason that mold grows on walls is because of high humidity and warm temperatures, which allow the mold to thrive and continue to grow. While you are looking for mold, you should understand that a lot of the walls and carpeted areas where molds grow have condensation on them consistently. Condensation often forms because the water vapor that is in the air meets the cooler surface of the wall or flooring and causes vapor to form. Because the vapor in the air needs to touch a cold surface, this usually occurs on walls that are connected to the outside or the flooring in or around the bathroom of the home. These walls tend to be colder than the other walls in the home because they share a side with the cold air on the outside of the home and because the heat from the shower or bath makes the surrounding area relatively cool. Carpet Cleaning in Sammamish When the humidity levels in your Sammamish home are high for a long amount of time, it will become much easier for mold to grow throughout your home and could require carpet cleaning in Sammamish. Carpet cleaning in Sammamish is a great way to fight the growth of mold. If you have any pipes that are leaking, the leaking may cause mold to grow inside of the wall. Unfortunately, many people do not find the leaky pipe or the mold unless the leak becomes very apparent or creates problems within the house. Some people will find the leak after some time, but the mold may be flourishing by the time that you find the leaky pipe. It is important that you are aware of small changes in your walls to ensure you recognize early signs of mold throughout your home. When the paint on your walls starts to peel or there is any type of discoloration or bulging, you may have moisture within your walls. If these signs become apparent, you may want to take a look within your walls to ensure that there is not any mold growing. Call a Professional to Get Rid of Mold If you find mold growing within your walls, call a professional to come help you get rid of the mold. Even though the mold is on the other side of your wall, it can pose some serious health risks to those that are living within your home. When the mold spores get inside of your home, they can easily travel through your air system. As those within your house breathe in the spores, the spores may cause health problems for each person that breathes in the spores. This is especially true for children who spend a lot of time on the floor of the home if there is mold growth in or under the carpeting of the home. Carpet cleaning in Sammamish will greatly help a homeowner to thwart the growth and expansion of mold spores in their home. Photo Credit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/frederickmdrocks/5106447055/
