Kitchens are the heart of the home for many people. With all the traffic that they do receive throughout the day from breakfast in the morning to preparing dinner in the evening, it’s critical that you keep this part of your home up and running. Especially considering the preparation of food and its consumption in relation to the health of your loved ones. When attempting to found out if your kitchen has been affected by mold damage you want to check around the primary water sources for your kitchen. That, of course, would be the sink and the refrigerator. 

Sinks are your primary water source in the kitchen and whether you’re washing dishes or preparing a meal with water it’s easy to allow water to flop around. If that water is continually allowed to pile up it may result in standing water. Standing water around your sink may be the precursor to mold beginning to develop. Likewise, for your refrigerator, you should regularly check behind and underneath your refrigerator for any standing water as well as mold beginning to develop. Many refrigerators come equipped with water and ice dispenser. If those connections to the wall falter it may cause leaking which may ultimately lead to mold. 

If you encounter mold in your kitchen its best to respond quickly in order to mitigate the effects. The SERVPRO of Kernersville team is trained in these sorts of matters and are ready to assist when necessary. 

Your SERVPRO of Kernersville team is readily available to assess your fire, water, mold, or storm damage needs if such events arise. We can be contacted at (336) 748-0250.
