Did you know Cleaning Habits can Help Prevent Mold Growth!

SERVPRO of Hammond receives many calls to Inspect Microbial Growth in Residential Homes and Businesses.  Usually the Visible Microbial Growth we see everyday are around Counter Tops, Sinks, Bathtubs, Shower Enclosures, Windows and even on the Window Blinds.  This usually happens because of Dust and Condensation Build Up. 

Many don't realize is Dust is made up of tiny particles that consist of plant pollen, earth, waste matter, hair, skin cells, food, mold spores and even bacteria.  The Dust can be carried in the Air and can Rest on the Ground or Surfaces.  When Condensation Builds Up the Dust becomes Moist which usually feeds and starts the spread of Microbial Growth.

It's best to perform Good Cleaning Habits on a regular basis.  Good Cleaning Habits are dusting, wiping, brushing, mopping, sweeping and vacuuming which will remove the Dust from the Surfaces.  Also, Airing Out the Home or Business by opening windows and doors on a regular basis will help prevent Condensation Build Up.
