North Shore Restore is your one-stop shop for all types of restorative measures, from water damages to mold remediation; we do it all. Below, we will discuss a few ways to prevent mold from growing on your property.

Water Damages – Always Call A Professional

Water damages are the leading causes of mold growth on your property. Mold needs water to grow, which is why you should always call a professional for water damage cleanup and removal. Water will move throughout your property, hiding beneath carpets and floors, as well as between walls. This is where problems arise. If you do not call a professional with the proper equipment to find hidden water, it will sit in your home until mold starts to grow. If you have water damages, contact a professional for complete removal!

Humidity Levels

Higher humidity levels will cause condensation to occur on your property. If this happens, it can lead to mold growth throughout your home. Checking your humidity levels can help you determine if you need a dehumidifier. This can help to lower the humidity levels in your home, ensuring mold is prevented.

Ventilation is Important

Have you ever noticed how much water fogs up your mirror or windows in your kitchen or bathroom? This means you do not have the proper ventilation. Opening windows, using fans, and installing ventilation are one of the many ways you can prevent mold from growing. We see a lot of mold stains in kitchens and bathrooms for this very reason.
Check Problem Areas Of Your Property!

Attics, bathrooms, washrooms, and kitchens are all common areas that are known for mold growth. Check these areas and ensure you have the right amount of ventilation. It is also good to check regularly for any water damages. If you see water damages, contact a professional.
