Improper Ventilation Behind Breakroom Refrigerator Causes Mold

2/16/2021 (Permalink)

You have contacted SERVPRO to remove the mold you discovered behind your refrigerator. As you watch the crew work you are in awe as they put up what appears to be a plastic room between the dining room and living room. You ask the relevance of such a room, and the SERVPRO Technician is happy to explain the necessity of setting up a safe place to clean off their bags and tools. This zone will help to prevent contamination to clean parts of the room, home, or business. 

What caused the mold is too much moisture in the air, due to poor ventilation in the home. Either a window, or ventilation fan is needed to properly disperse the moisture, so it does not set on the ceilings, or walls. Mold can not only damage the home, or business, but can also be a health risk to those who occupy the home or business. At SERVPRO our technicians are certified to carefully remove the mold, thus bringing your home or business back to a safe environment.
