In Auburn, IN, home and business owners alike face significant risks of mold growth. This is particularly troubling because of the damage mold can cause to structural elements of your building, various belongings, and even your health.
To reduce these risks, we offer full mold remediation services here at ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors. We will test for all traces of mold on your property, contain it to make sure it does not spread while we work, eliminate it, and then restore any affected areas.
Property Damage Caused by Mold Growth
Even the smallest patches of mold can quickly grow into a major problem. This is because mold simply needs an organic food source and excess moisture in order to take hold. As it does, it will release mold spores that continue the cycle. The results can vary, but are unpleasant in any case, to say the least.
There are several common building materials (such as drywall, insulation, and wood) that contain cellulose, a natural food source for mold. This means that mold can actually cause structural damage to your property if it is not addressed swiftly. Additionally, it can spread onto a variety of furnishings and personal belongings. As it does, you will need to be concerned with more than structural integrity, odors, and appearances; it can also be detrimental to your health.
Health Risks Caused by Mold
Prolonged exposure to mold can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks, lead to respiratory infections, and cause an assortment of other health complications. If for any reason, the health risks to those on your property should prompt you to get the mold removed.
Common Locations for Mold Growth
As we stated above, the two conditions that lead to mold growth are excess moisture and an organic food source. This can help narrow down the locations where mold likes to grow; however, the places that we usually find it in include:
- Beneath bathroom and kitchen sinks
- Behind refrigerators and toilets
- In basements, crawl spaces, and attics
- Behind walls that contain plumbing
- Around air conditioning units
- Underneath wet carpeting
While your home or office space may present unique conditions, these will give you a good idea of the types of areas to look.
