Summer Storms Brings Rainbows and the Mold To Your Thomasville Home
Summer storms can bring about many things: green grass, lush trees, and even mold. It takes only about 36 hours for mold to colonize in your home. But why do we see an increase in the mold during the summer months? Summer in the south is known for two things: heat and humidity. In addition to the heavy rains typically seen during the summer, those things can increase the chance of mold in your home. A single mold spore in the right conditions could colonize and cause thousands of dollars if left undetected.
So, What Should You Do?
- To prevent water damage to your home, make sure you keep your gutters clean. Water from a stopped-up gutter can backflow into your home undetected until ugly yellow spots appear on your ceiling, and then it’s too late.
- Open the vents under your house to allow outside air to circulate to prevent moisture build-up.
- Make sure outside water drains away from your property.
- Keep a lookout for a musty smell.
