Averting Water Damage & Mold in your Laundry Room
A regular spring cleaning can reveal more than you anticipated including water damage previously gone unnoticed. Discussed previously in blogs concerning mold damage in your attic, basement, kitchen, and bathroom; standing water may create a messy situation for your home. Unfortunately, it may also lead to mold for your property that may require a significant investment in order to remediate which should be done quickly since it may mitigate the health risk to the residents of your home.
Standing water in your laundry room may spell disaster and result in mold lining the walls near your washing machine and dryer where excess moisture may result in the collections of water. To help reduce the possibility of mold occurring in your laundry room you want to first consistently check behind your machines as well as the tube lines that go into the washer machine for any abnormalities. It may be an inconvenience, but regularly checking may help you notice damage before it becomes too severe. Servicing your washing machine and dryer regularly may also reduce the possibility of water damage due to a malfunction in your machine.
