3 Ways to Prevent Mold on a Rental Property

When your Waynesville, NC, business involves rental properties, mold prevention can be an important maintenance requirement for acquiring or maintaining a tenant. Fortunately, there are a number or prevention steps you can take to protect the property.

1. Regular Maintenance

One of the first things that can be done to help prevent mold growth, is to regularly maintain the property. This means looking for any areas that could lead to water damage such as missing shingles, or a loose window. Staying on top of any maintenance needs can help you ensure that repairs are made as soon as possible, which can in turn help prevent long term damage.

2. Quick Repairs

Quick repairs are an important step to mold prevention, as they allow for problems to be identified and repaired in time to prevent a larger problem such as mold. Mold grows best in dark and damp environments. This means that it is most likely to occur in an area where there is a moisture problem such as around a leaking roof, window, or foundation. If you find such a problem on a property, making quick repairs can allow you to address the source before mold sets in.

3. Professional Help

When you have rental properties you may also wish to have the contact information for a local restoration service. These professionals can help with a variety of damage types from fire to flooding, but they should also have experience in mold remediation, which means if there is a problem they can find the source and remove the spores. They may also be able to perform mold tests if you believe there may be a problem but can’t identify the source.
One of the most important aspects of mold prevention is to prevent the growing conditions in the first place. This can mean regularly maintaining the property to prevent leaks, making necessary repairs quickly, and in some cases contacting a professional for help.
