Our local Hillsboro and Forest Grove team is a trusted leader in mold damage remediation services in Gaston. Mold is a common challenge in Oregon, and the State of Oregon website offers helpful information on how to prevent mold from growing inside homes and buildings as follows:

What causes mold to grow?

Molds need moisture to grow. Some household situations that lead to mold growth include:

  1. Clogged gutters and downspouts
  2. Leaky plumbing
  3. Leaky roofs
  4. Using hot water without venting the steam to outdoor air.

Also, when indoor air is warmer than outdoor air, moisture can collect on cold surfaces like single-pane windows, uninsulated walls, pipes, and roofs.

Preventing household mold

  • Install double-pane windows or insulation to keep moisture from collecting on cold surfaces
  • Inspect and repair leaks in roofs, gutters, foundations, and plumbing
  • If you rent, consider taking pictures of moisture problems and documenting the situation with your landlord
  • Review Home Moisture Problems (pdf) by the Oregon State University Extension Service
