Prevent Mold in your Sacramento Kitchen
Your Sacramento kitchen provides the perfect conditions for mold, so how can you prevent it?
Kitchens are one of the most susceptible areas to mold in a Sacramento home. Given the moderate temperatures in Sacramento, and the damp and cool environments that are present in your kitchen, this is a prime area for mold to occur. For walls, you may want to use mold resistant paint because of the inherent added moisture in the kitchen area. This type of paint is water resistant and will prevent mold penetrating from the paint into the walls.
Removing standing water, and thus extra humidity and growth spots, are one way to prevent mold. The dryer you keep your kitchen, the less moisture you are allowing into the air for possible mold growth. As well, keeping surfaces clean can help prevent water sneaking into cracks, crevices, or under objects that may start mold growth.
Regularly opening windows in your kitchen can help to reduce humidity, and thus mold. Good ventilation will prevent the conditions that allow for mold growth. When you do find mold, be sure to contact SERVPRO of North Highlands and Rio Linda to take the preventative mold remediation measures you need to keep your house clean.
