Preventing Toxic Mold Growth

Preventing Toxic Mold Growth

Toxic molds are actually a family of molds that release poisonous byproducts called mycotoxins. While most homes do contain small amounts of regular mold, the toxic byproducts of some molds can cause respiratory disorders. Thus, many people who find toxic mold growth in their home decide to have it specially cleaned and renovated to remove the mold. However, there are some things that you can do to prevent mold growth in the first place.

At WOW Total Cleaning, we are dedicated to making your home or business clean and safe from things like dust mites and toxic mold. We offer carpet cleaning, water extraction, air duct cleaning, and other services that can help prevent the accumulation of mold.

Causes of Mold

Mold thrives in warm, humid environments. Accordingly, spores tend to settle and sprout in places such as:

  • Laundry rooms
  • Basements
  • Kitchens
  • Air ducts

Things like water leaks from kitchen and laundry appliances as well as piping for your air conditioner can provide enough moisture for mold colonies to thrive. If your carpet gets damp, mold can develop in the fibers of your flooring.
