The technicians at SERVPRO® of Downtown Chicago/Team Zubricki have the training, equipment, and experience to restore residential and commercial mold damage “Like it never even happened.” Here are some tips for preventing mold outbreaks in homes and commercial buildings:

Control moisture: Fix leaks promptly, use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens, and maintain proper ventilation to reduce humidity.

Monitor indoor humidity: Keep indoor humidity levels between 30-60 percent using dehumidifiers if necessary.

Insulate and ventilate: Insulate cold surfaces like pipes to prevent condensation and ensure proper ventilation in attics, crawl spaces, and basements.

Regular maintenance: Inspect and clean gutters, roof, and HVAC systems regularly to prevent water accumulation and mold growth.

Proper drainage: Ensure proper grading around the building to direct water away from the foundation and install drainage systems as needed.

Use mold-resistant products: Utilize mold-resistant building materials in construction and consider mold-resistant paints for interior surfaces.

Prompt cleanup: Immediately dry and clean up any water spills or leaks within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold growth.

Monitor indoor plants: Avoid overwatering indoor plants and ensure proper drainage to prevent mold growth in soil.

Educate occupants: Educate residents or employees about mold prevention and encourage them to promptly report any leaks or moisture issues.
