Mold Discovery in Garage is Quite Common

Mold in the garage is a pretty common problem. While homes usually have good ventilation to help prevent mold growth, garages are another matter. In addition to poor ventilation, simply driving a car into the garage in rainy or snowy weather tracks in a lot of water that can lead to mold growth. Mold can be found in many places in garages, though, not only on the floors or walls. Boxes of stored belongings and stacks of magazines or newspapers can get moldy. Camping equipment or summer supplies may get moldy, especially if put away damp.

Luckily this homeowner in Holliston discovered mold on their garage floor, right away and SERVPRO of Framingham was able to remediate the situation in a timely manner.
