Why windows are prone to mold
Windows are constantly exposed to harsh outdoor weather conditions, making them vulnerable to leaks. Water accumulates when window frames leak, often leading to mold on or around the frames, window sills and walls.
This is an especially common problem in older homes where the seals around the windows have weakened and allow water and condensation to gather.
In addition, window mold results when there is a difference in temperature between the inside and outside of a house. This temperature difference can cause condensation, moisture build-up and mold. The base of the window is usually where moisture and dust build up to create the perfect environment for mold growth.
Due to the high cellulose content of drywall, window mold often destroys walls that are located adjacent to windows. Depending on the extent of the mold contamination, some window frames and window sills may have to be replaced.
That’s why, before Mold Busters starts any remediation work, we will inspect the area around your windows to identify signs of moisture intrusion and to evaluate the extent of the damage. Call us today to learn more about our window mold removal services.
How to remove window mold
Because the spaces between windows and window frames are so tiny, window mold removal can be a tedious and time-consuming job.
If you are considering removing window mold on your own, you should first know that most household products simply are not strong enough to eliminate certain types of mold. This is because mold is known to deeply root itself into host areas, making it impossible to expel completely.
Professional window mold removal will not only save you time, but it will also minimize damage to surrounding window frames and adjacent walls.
