What Louisville’s Humidity Means for Your Home

Posted on January 8, 2019 by ANR Restoration

In Louisville, Kentucky, humidity is the real deal. Not only does it affect how hot it gets, but it could be a breeding ground for mold in your home. As we leave winter behind and move towards the spring and summer months, you should be on the lookout for mold in your home. Check out these reasons why you may need to hire a Louisville mold removal service.

Mold in Your Air Ducts

Believe it or not, mold actually makes its way into air ducts, especially in humid weather. Because your air ducts are crucial to the health of the air in your home, you really need to be careful that mold does not spread into any of your units. Breathing in the mold can lead to worsening asthma or allergies, headaches, and even dizziness. If you feel any of these symptoms worsening, check your air ducts for mold and call a Louisville mold removal company right away. You should also see a doctor to check on your symptoms.

Mold On Your Siding

It's recommended that you pressure wash the outside of your house once a year to keep your home looking like new. It'll also take a proactive approach against mold. Because of how humid Louisville can get, you should check your house periodically for mold growth on the outside. If you frequently hang out outside your house or have kids who like to play in the front yard, this is an even better reason to get rid of your mold quickly. Even in the outdoors, mold can adversely affect your health.

Mold In Your Showers

Humidity can affect your pipes. In places like showers, sinks, and toilets mold growth is at a prime. And if you see even a little bit of mold in one area, it's probably spread from further in the pipes. Mold spores thrive in areas that are damp or wet, which is why it loves humidity. Once the mold is spotted you should assume that it's elsewhere in your home. Hiring a Louisville mold removal company is best for these situations because they can not only take care of the mold you see but also check for mold elsewhere. They have the right tools to really search and not miss any of it.

Hire A Professional

There's no reason to try to remove the mold yourself. While you may be tempted to wipe it away with chemical cleaners and rags, you'll probably miss where the mold originated, especially if it's embedded in your walls. Any mold left unchecked will just continue to grow. Hire a Louisville mold removal company like ANR Restoration. We are a full-service restoration company that can handle all of your cleaning needs.
