Mold Removal for Condo
When you are living in a condominium you are in essence living amongst many other people, so what your neighbors do can ultimately affect you as well.
Water leakage and flooding affect many condo owners, especially ones that may be “snow birds” and will not notice a problem for months. A water pipe burst, a faulty air conditioning line, or outside elements can all be factors that can affect your neighbors on either side or your upstairs/downstairs neighbors. When water is present and seeps into materials, mold will grow fast and could spread easily through the HVAC system or a wall/ceiling.
We suggest if you live in a condo that you observe low humidity procedures:
- Keep the humidity level in your home between 30% to 60% by using air conditioners or dehumidifiers.
- Put exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Don't install carpets in damp areas such as basements or bathrooms.
Don't let water accumulate under house plants.
Invariably accidents happen and you could end up facing the situation of mold in your condominium. The biggest question we get asked, is who pays if the mold is from a negligent neighbor? Consult your Condo Association Rules/Handbook and also consult your homeowner’s insurance company to find out. There is not one answer, as having flood riders on your insurance or having an Association that is not properly insured could all factor in to this question.
What it comes down to, is if you do have mold in your condo, it must be treated. Who will you call? A certified trusted company like Mold Removal and More.
