Checking for Microbial Growth in Your Home

3/26/2019 (Permalink)

We’ve previously talked about how microbial growth can find its way into your home. Moisture, rain fall, leaking, and floods can all be a cause to growth in the home. However, do you know what areas to check for growth?

The bathroom, kitchen and basement are the most susceptible rooms in the home, given that they typically have the largest amount of moisture. In addition to the following areas, you should check your washer for leaks, growth in or around seals, and in tubing.

Bathroom:

-Under the sink, especially around the pipes where water could leak or accumulate.

-Around the toilet

-Near the ventilation system. Although it is a vent for moisture, growth could be possible.

Kitchen:

-Under kitchen sink.

-In and around seals of the refrigerator.

-Around windows seals and edges.

Basement:

-Walls and ceiling, especially near windows or cracks.

-Flooring in dark, moist areas.

-Check for cracks and leaks in foundation

Microbial Growth and Your Home

1/10/2019 (Permalink)

Your home should be a safe and healthy environment for you and your family. If you have recently experienced water damage, you may have microbial growth that you aren’t aware of. Mold spores are everywhere, and it is impossible to completely remove mold spores from the environment. However, there are many ways to help prevent the spread of spores!

The best way to ensure that your home will not succumb to microbial growth is to keep moisture away. Moisture can creep up in many areas of your home, even places that you don’t initially think to check. Your attic, spouting, drain hoses, and washer and dryer sets are among some of the hidden homes of microbial growth.  Take a look at what you could be experiencing with this Interactive Microbial Growth House Tour today!
