Baton Rouge Moisture Issues
Moisture causes millions in property damage every year, and can lead to serious problems such as structural instability and mold growth. AdvantaClean of Baton Rouge detects and removes moisture and it’s damage, and installs preventative measures to prevent future moisture buildup.
Improperly installed or vented appliances, structural issues, and loose or cracked plumbing fixtures can cause moisture to accumulate in floors, walls, and ceilings. Moisture is often commonly found in the following areas:
- Near Appliances
- Inside HVAC ducts
- Crawl Spaces
Moisture in Kitchens
If you operate a Baton Rouge, LA restaurant or other facility with a commercial kitchen, moisture is a serious risk. Commercial cooking appliances and dishwashing areas are major sources of steam that can accumulate on walls and ceilings. If left unchecked, moisture can damage your facility and lead to mold growth- a serious problem in a food preparation environment.
Moisture in Laundry Facilities
Laundry facilities are a common area for moisture buildup to occur due to the multitude of pipes, fittings, and appliances transporting water. A clogged drain, leaky gasket, or loose fitting can allow moisture to build up unnoticed. Moisture buildup is a serious problem in laundry areas because of the damage that it can do to walls, ceilings, and appliances. If moisture is left unchecked, it can lead to mold growth which can quickly spread to towels, sheets, and other laundry.
Moisture in Restrooms
Toilets, Sinks, and Showers in restrooms often contribute to moisture buildup in restrooms. This can lead to slips and falls in addition to property damage, leading to significant liability and repair costs.
Moisture in Residences
Moisture can accumulate in homes in a variety of areas. A leaking skylight or roof, an improperly weatherproofed window, and a leaky pipe area are common sources of moisture in homes across the United States. Moisture buildup can damage your home’s walls, floors, and furnishings, costing you thousands and leading to more serious problems.
