Mold poses a serious risk to your property whether it be your home, office, warehouse, or retail space. Essentially all spaces where there’s moisture gathering there’s the potential for mold to occur and being mindful of that puts you one step ahead of preventing it. Now is a great time since people are slowing down with the COVID-19 public health crisis to review your property for any anomalies that you may have not to notice before until now. 

First, be aware of any standing water in your property. That could be water that has circled your toilet, bathtub, or even underneath your sink. Checking underneath your sink and in the vanity for any water leaks is an important step in noticing mold damage, so that you may begin the mitigation process. Watermarks on walls in your home or place of business is possibly another sign of potential mold damage on your property. 

Laundry rooms are also potential havens for water to fester and create a mold damage situation requiring an immediate response in order to mitigate the damage. Along with your eyesight also using your nose is a critical tool. A musty smell in your laundry room or bathroom can potentially be a sign that mold has developed. Checking behind your washer machine for any irregularities that may lead to water seeping out. 

Mold can damage your property to the extent requiring a professional crew to remedy the situations. The health risk can also mount especially for the most vulnerable to sickness.
