Don't Let Mold Bloom In Your Home This Spring

3/26/2018 (Permalink)

First, let’s discuss, what is mold? According to the EPA, “Mold is a family of fungi and mold spores are everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. There are many thousands of varieties and we are exposed to them all the time, typically without incident. Mold spores feed on or break down organic substances.”

There are four factors that need to be present for mold growth to begin: mold spores, moisture, temperatures to promote growth, and a food source.  When molds produce potentially toxic mycotoxins, can lead to health problems like asthma and other respiratory complications. The elderly, young children, and those with known respiratory are very susceptible to reactions when mold is present. The presence of dangerous mold requires a licensed, certified mold removal and remediation company.

Molds are everywhere in the environment and can grow on virtually any organic substance where moisture and oxygen are present.  If the moisture problem remains undiscovered it can affect your home’s indoor air quality and the health of people sensitive to mold.  The key to getting rid of mold is quickly removing the water from your property.
