Why is mold remediation needed during cold Chicago winters?

Hyde Park, E. Bridgeport and Bronzeville are part of three community areas of Chicago. There are 77 such areas within the city of 2.7 million people and the metro statistical area with a population of over 10 million people. Over 58 million tourists visit every year, and many large companies are located in the city representing every part of the economy

In a city as large as Chicago, there are many exciting and entertaining things to do. However, our focus is on the three community areas served by our company. Our list includes nine activities that many people enjoy. We will cover a few in more detail that may be of interest to residents

  • Museum of Science and Industry

  • Oriental Institute Museum
  • Jackson Park’s Japanese Garden
  • Rockefeller Memorial Chapel
  • Foster Avenue Beach
  • Chicago Maritime Museum
  • Palmisano Park

Jackson Park’s Japanese Garden

The garden was established in 1893, over 120 years ago as the Japanese contribution to the Worlds Columbian Exposition and expanded several times. A 1992 revitalization project celebrated the relationship with Osaka, Japan, Chicago’s sister city. One of the popular features of the gardens is the spring blossoming of the cherry trees. Peak bloom is anticipated in late April and early May and lasts for 6 to 10 days.

Rockefeller Memorial Chapel

Located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel is the ceremonial and spiritual center of the University of Chicago. Significant speakers and artists prize this medieval-looking cathedral as the desired event location. Over 220,000 visitors enjoy festivals and ceremonies every year.

Foster Avenue Beach

The Foster Avenue Beach is located, you guessed it, at Foster Avenue in Lincoln Park at 5200 N Lake Shore Drive. Amenities include food concessions, restrooms, bike rentals, and a beach house. The beach opens at 6 am; however, swimming is only allowed when lifeguards are on duty. The beach is considered an excellent sandy patch for families.

There are many top-rated sites to visit in greater Chicago which many tourists, as well as residents, enjoy visiting:

  • The Art Institute of Chicago
  • Museum of Science and Industry
  • 360 Chicago Observation Deck
  • Cloud Gate
  • Millennium Park
  • Wrigley Field
  • The Magnificent Mile.

Mold Remediation in Cold Weather Conditions

Many consumers believe that cold weather can kill mold. However, the reality is that mold spores are very hardy. During cold weather, the spores become dormant and respond when conditions improve. Once temperatures warm up, the spores reactivate and begin multiplying if moisture and food are available.

SERVPRO encounters numerous mold infestations requiring mold remediation in Chicago homes during the winter months. We maintain our homes and offices at temperatures suitable for mold growth during the winter and summer with the AC operating.

Clients can reduce mold infestations by:

  • Ensuring good air circulation
  • Repairing water leaks and keeping areas dry
  • Maintain humidity levels below 50%
  • Discard old materials exposed to moisture

Contact SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville for mold remediation services in Chicago and surrounding areas. We can help 24/7. Call (312) 509-5000.
