Does this look like a photo from one of your worst nightmares? We can understand that. Even the smallest amount of mold is not good to have in your home or property, but an amount this large can be especially concerning. It can be harmful to the health of those who are breathing it in, and it can hide in places that are not always clearly visible. But cases like this are not out of the ordinary, either.
Bathrooms are one of the most ideal locations for mold to grow because of all of the places for moisture to accumulate. It is not uncommon for bathrooms to have improper ventilation, which can lead to major issues if the moisture and humidity is trapped in the bathroom every time the shower or bath is used.
If you do not have a ventilation fan, it is important that you have one installed immediately. There is a good chance that mold is already growing in hard-to-reach, hard-to-see places.
If you do have a ventilation fan, be sure to turn it on for the duration of your shower or bath. You can also leave it running for 30 minutes following a shower or bath, as this can ensure that most of the moisture has been removed and any condensation has dried.
In a case as severe as this one, you should call in professionals from SERVPRO of Mercer County to have the mold properly removed from the space. Then, SERVPRO professionals will help you to determine a course of action for remediation of your mold problem.
