About Magic Touch Carpet Cleaning

Magic Touch is just a phone call away to help eliminate mold. We work to determine the possible cause of mold, establish a plan for mold removal, and determine what other preventative measures can be taken to avoid recurring growth.

How Mold Grows

  • Requires a wet environment to start growing
  • Usually starts as a consequence of improperly controlled water damage, but not limited to poor air/humidity control in certain areas of home and/or businesses
  • Spores typically begin to grow within 48-72 hours after a water loss
  • Many molds require a high level of moisture to grow
  • Can survive and reproduce at much lower moisture levels (sometimes as low as standard indoor humidity levels)
  • Growth can be prevented only with quick and efficient drying by removing the moisture necessary for initial mold growth before it begins

Preventing Mold Problems

  • Locate and correct any sources of moisture
  • Inspect roofs annually for leaks and check flashing between surfaces, around chimneys, vent stacks or dormers
  • Keep gutters clear to prevent collection of water
  • Assure proper attic ventilation allowing warmer air to escape and better circulation
  • Make sure attic insulation and ventilation is adequate to prevent ice dams which may cause water to back up under roof shingles
  • Inspect kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms for signs of water supply or waste line breaks and fix promptly
  • Make sure shower walls and floors are structurally sound; grout and joints should be well sealed
  • Bathrooms should have ventilation fans
  • Inspect air conditioners and refrigerators annually as proper operation and drainage will help avoid microbial growth
  • Inspect basements and crawl spaces to ensure adequate insulation, ventilation, and drainage
  • Clothes dryers should be vented outside
