It's no secret: rain is rare around Los Angeles. But the truth is, very little moisture is required for mold to grow, and rain storms are but one possible source of dampness. In fact, there are two sources of water damage that are "so LA." And where there's water, there could be mold. So homeowners should regularly inspect for mold around windows, behind appliances like washing machines and dishwashers or near HVAC units.
And should you discover an infestation, here are a few things you should not do when finding mold in your home or commercial property. Instead, call SERVPRO of North Hollywood anytime, 24/7, for fast mold remediation service. In the meantime, learn more about mold and what to do until help arrives by reviewing these mold damage tips.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
