Mold Inspection in Westport
When we perform mold inspections in Westport, leaks are one of the issues we run into most frequently. Leaks lead to excess moisture, and in the wrong part of your home, that’s an invitation for mold growth.
If you have a mold problem caused by a leak, it’s important to fix both issues as soon as you can. But to do that, you’ll need to decide which issue to fix fist: the leak or the mold?
The good news is that this is usually an easy question to answer. Below, we’ll take a look at why it’s better to address the leak first and how to get rid of mold once the leak is out of the way.
Fixing Leaks vs. Treating Mold
When you’re dealing with mold, there are two separate problems that need to be solved. For starters, there’s the mold itself, which is notoriously hard to get rid of with household products. But in addition to the mold, you also need to deal with the conditions that allowed mold to grow in the first place. If you don’t fix these problems, you’ll simply encourage new mold in the future.
At Green Home Solutions, we recommend getting rid of the root cause of mold before treating the mold itself when possible. This is particularly important when you have acute moisture issues, such as those caused by leaks. If we treat the mold first, but the moisture issue remains, there’s a strong chance of new mold growth. Should that happen, it will require yet another mold treatment.
By fixing the leak first, you can safely remove the mold and prevent it from returning after the treatment.
