You only, ever look up at your skylights when it is raining hard, and you hear the pitter-patter on glass. However, when you notice a drip on the kitchen counter, from your skylight, you look up again. You might wonder how long your skylight has been leaking. Furthermore, you want to know the damage. Perhaps your skylight isn’t leaking anymore, but it looks a little, fuzzy and gray. That’s right, mold is the problem. The professionals at Conejo Restoration help eliminate this problem through removal and remediation.

Acting Fast

It is important to catch water damage right away. Then your home and belongings can be dried properly to avoid future mold. However, it’s sometimes difficult to catch water damage right away. This means the water is to dry by itself, and not completely. Leftover moisture causes mold to occur. It even occurs without water damage, and may be present in humid areas of your home, and even on the outside of your home.

How Mold Occurs

Mold likes to grow in places of high humidity. In your home, includes places like your bathrooms and the laundry room. Additionally, you might find it growing near the dishwasher, washing machine, and their vents leading outside. It is also found in basements and crawl spaces. Because some mold is extremely dangerous, it is bad for your home and bad for your health. Moreover, it leads to long term health problems for you and your family. This is why it is important to bring in professionals to remove mold as soon as you find it.
