You Can Effectively Control Mold and Their Spores

Mold likes hiding in plain sight. The moist air in our Manhattan area keeps mold spores on the cusp of invading your space. You could have the microfilaments of mold settling into your walls or ductwork right now.

Excessive humidity or lingering residue triggered by leaks or trapped moisture invites mold spores to inhabit your space with you. Stern Mold’s Manhattan mold removal experts know the warning signs and are ready to help you take action!

The Ideal Setting for Mold Spores

Mold spores look for places to hang out and stay a while. If you’re a property or business owner, make sure to perform a weekly walk-through to spot any potential mold spore access points. Seek out areas of pooling water, blocked drains, excessive condensation near pipes and sniff out any peculiar smells. If you spot any of these signs, mold spores may be present. Check these favorite habitable spaces for signs of mold:

• AC Evaporator Coils

• Drip Pans

• Ductwork

Your heating and cooling system are where hot and cold temperature zones meet and mingle. If any mold spores inhabit these areas, they don’t stay in one place very long. They spread out, traveling through air and latching onto any available materials. Since ductwork circulates air, any mold filaments present may travel through the ductwork and pollute the spaces they reach.
