You can often find mold damage such as mildew in the kitchen of your home or business. Running water from faucets, steam from tea kettles or boiling water, these add moisture to the area, and mold thrives on damp surfaces. Fungus and mold also grow on food that is left alone for too long. If the humidity levels in your kitchen remain high, mold colonies may begin to grow, so keeping up with spills and moisture left behind is always a good idea.

Make sure your kitchen is well ventilated. Opening doors and windows can help with this and using an exhaust fan is also a way to keep levels of humidity lower. If you notice a musty smell in your kitchen, you can call an expert to come and assess the situation. Here at SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville & Douglas, we are experienced in the area of mold remediation.

Fungus and mildew can grow on unwashed dishes. If wet and dirty dishes are stacked up on each other. they never get a chance to dry out and will provide mold spores the perfect opportunity to start a colony. If a little mold does show up, hot water and soap will take care of it right away.

Sometimes a sink can show signs of mildew or mold beginning to grow; if that happens, just clean it the way you normally would, using cleaning products, and that should take care of it. Make sure you clean all the nooks and crannies, behind the faucets and the unnoticed areas where water sometimes gets trapped. Clean the drain well, also, since this is an area that doesn’t get dried out as often, and mold can easily grow here. You will want to run your garbage disposal daily, as well. This action alone can do a lot to prevent mildew and fungus from returning to the drain.

Take care of any leaks immediately. Whether under your sink or above, you can end up with a serious mold issue pretty quickly if these types of situations are ignored. Mold removal technicians can help take care of a big problem quickly and can get rid of that musty smell. They can also assist with ways to keep mold from growing back, as well.
