If you suspect a mold and mildew problem, don't hesitate to call the experts at Bradley Mechanical.

How does Mold and Mildew Grow?

Several conditions are needed for mold and mildew to thrive in an area. Mold and mildew occur in places with high moisture and humidity, where it has constant access to nutrients and oxygen, and where there is little to no sunlight. Warm air meets cold surfaces and creates moisture, which is why the bathroom is one of the most common rooms mold and mildew can form. You may also struggle with this problem in closets, basements, and attics due to their darker nature and poor ventilation.

Mildew only grows on the surface, but mold buries deep into porous surfaces, such as wood, drywall, carpet, insulation, and more. If left unchecked, mold can overtake huge areas inside the home's foundation. Due to the situation's risks and gravity, it is vital to call an expert to deal with the problem. Bradley Mechanical's team has been trained extensively to get rid of mold and mildew in the safest manner possible.
