Rainstorm Causes Mold Outbreak in Mission Valley Home?

4/2/2024 (Permalink)

Rain and a broken seal around a door cause a mold outbreak. We are leaders in mold remediation services in San Diego.

Our local Mission Valley East team is trained and certified to restore mold damage. A broken seal around a doorframe can permit water infiltration into a home, leading to mold outbreaks.

When the seal is compromised, it fails to effectively block moisture from entering the interior. During rainy weather or if water accumulates near the door, it can seep through the gap, primarily if an overhang or awning does not adequately protect the door. Once inside, moisture accumulates in the surrounding area, creating a damp environment conducive to mold growth.

The moisture infiltrates porous surfaces such as drywall, wood, or carpeting without intervention. Mold spores are always in the Earth's atmosphere, waiting for the perfect warm and moist conditions to colonize. When the optimum conditions are present, mold can become visible within 48 to 72 hours.

Mold outbreaks can be discouraged by promptly addressing any broken seals around a doorframe or window. These repairs are crucial to preventing water intrusion and mitigating mold growth.
