Prevent Mold Buildup In Your Bennington/ Rutland Vermont Home or Business
Mold is something none of us want in our homes or businesses. Mold spores feed on dust, dirt, or other organic materials so it is important to thoroughly clean your home or business. Below there are three areas to focus on to help to reduce the chances of mold buildup.
- General Surfaces
As stated, above mold can feed on organic material such as dust. Dust gathers around any surface if it is not cleaned frequently. Therefore, if dust is not regularly cleaned and continues to accumulate mold can begin to grow and feed on the dust. It is best to regularly clean your home or business to prevent this from happening.
- Carpets and Rugs
Carpet flooring can trap dirt, soil, and spores which people can bring in from outside. If carpets are not cleaned and left alone these particles can build up and eventually lead to mold buildup and growth. This can be prevented by regular carpet cleaning and vacuuming. Another option in addition to regular cleaning is to install mats at the entrance of your home or building so people can wipe their footwear immediately upon entrance.
- Air Vents
HVAC cleaning is also an area of extreme importance to regularly clean. Dust can gather inside of them and spread throughout your home or building. If mold is found this means that mold can easily through your duct system be spread throughout your home. To prevent this, it is best to get your HVAC system professionally cleaned which is something we here at SERVPRO offer.
