Professional window installation and repair is important. In this article, we are going to discuss when to have your current windows replaced as well as the dangers of mold build up due to improperly installed windows or leakage.
Mold is a problem that plagues any area that is left moist for long periods of time. There are many different types of molds, but black mold is the most dangerous common type of mold found in households that need to avoided and then treated if discovered.
Water leaks in homes and businesses happen in many different places. One of the last places a homeowner would expect to find mold would be around their windows. This can be caused by a leaking window or in many cases simply because of condensation building up on the inside window pane.
Normal condensation on the inside window sill
When there is a lot of moisture inside a home, and particularly when the outside temperature is low, there is a prime condition for condensation to build on the inside window panes of your home. Often by simply cracking the windows open to let out some of the moisture in the home out as well as let some of the drier air from outside in, will cure this condition. Also, cracking the windows will allow the temperature of both sides of the window pane to be more alike, therefore avoiding the condensation buildup.
If you notice this kind of buildup on your window, you may want to ask yourself if there is indeed a lot of moisture in the home maybe because of many people having taken a recent hot showers and if cooking, especially with boiling water on the stove is taking place.
Mold can build up below the window itself like on drywall, painted areas, and baseboards. The wall below the window, especially on the inside of the wall, may be wet, and the environment inside the wall is perfect for the growth of mold, i.e. dark and with plenty of moisture.
A diluted bleach solution of 10 parts to one will help with clean-up of the mold, but a professional window installation company will need to visit your home or business to let you know how serious the damage may be and what the next steps should be for repair.
