Mold can grow anywhere the right conditions are present, even if the area has never had an infestation before, and these conditions might already exist somewhere in your home. Although mold prevention is not easy, the alternative option is to deal with the fungus after it has already been allowed to spread, which is a much more expensive and difficult process.

Keep The Home Dry


Most homes in Tampa with mold damage receive the damage as a side effect of some other type of water damage. When any part of the home including the bathroom remains inundated with excess water, this creates the perfect environment for spores to begin to grow.

Contacting a professional water removal company like SERVPRO soon after the water damage comes to light can prevent mold and other issues from developing at all.

Close The Windows


Longtime residents know Florida's humidity well. Open any window, and you can feel it for yourself. Fungi thrive in hot and humid conditions, and by keeping doors and windows open in your home, you work against the climate control systems that would otherwise discourage mold growth. You don't have to keep your home shuttered all day, but closing doors and windows when you are not around could be a good idea.

Do Not Ignore Warning Signs


A small patch of mold may seem harmless and easy to deal with, when it is, in fact, just an extension of a much larger mold problem. Mold can grow behind walls, below floors, and in hiding places. SERVPRO of West Tampa technicians use advanced thermohydrometers to detect pockets of moisture and mold growth throughout the home any time they respond to a mold damage call.
