Ew! How Does Mold Happen?
Without regular power washing keeping your surfaces clean, mold and mildew can grow unchecked. Since your outdoor spaces, such as your pool deck, roof, fencing, patio and more are exposed to all of the elements, they are bound to form some type of mold. Water, dirt, and dust are mold and mildew’s best friends, which can leave your outdoor spaces vulnerable. The moisture creates the perfect living space for mold spores that can spread when in the proper environment.
Should I Worry About Mold and Mildew Damage?
In most cases, there shouldn’t be too much to worry about. Mold is extremely common, because moisture is everywhere! But it is easily removed with professional power washing. You should be concerned when the mold has spread and begins to cause compromises in your exterior surfaces. Mold is unsightly but it is also a huge risk to homeowners because of how slippery and slick walkways, driveways, pool deck and patios become with mold or mildew present. It is important to reduce your exposure to mold and mildew damage and to prevent the spread of it with power washing.
With regular cleanings, such as soft washing or power washing, damage to your home or business can be avoided. Mold grows between shingles of your roof, and if the damage gets out of hand, thousands of dollars would have to be used to replace the roof. Mold and mildew can also create cracks in your exterior walls, allowing mold to enter your home, and on your walkways, where even more mold can spread through these cracks. Instead of spending thousands of dollars replacing a roof, a pool deck, or pavers, schedule regular power washing cleanings to avoid this problem.
While mold and mildew are normal, our maintenance techniques such as soft washing and regular power washing cleaning can not only prevent the spread of mold and mildew damage, but also prevent you or your loved ones from different health risks associated with the pesky spores.
