Mold is a very frustrating and disheartening sight for any home or building owner. It can appear anywhere at any time within the building materials as long as it finds an area that provides the proper conditions. Mold growth is difficult to prevent because the spores are naturally present in the air, and if they find a dark, damp area with an organic food source, they will quickly form mold colonies. You must react to any mold growth on your property as soon as you find it because mold can result in major property damage and health issues.
At ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors, we can help homes and businesses in Fort Wayne and all of Northeastern Indiana that are dealing with mold issues with our professional mold remediation services. Our technicians are highly trained to safely contain and remove mold growth using advanced techniques and equipment. We also work with an environmental testing agency to provide accurate mold testing to ensure that we uncover and remove all mold growth from your property.
Problems with Mold
Mold is a natural substance that serves a very important purpose in nature, but it is dangerous when inside a home or building. Building materials, such as wood, drywall, and insulation contain organic materials like cellulose that mold uses as a food source. Once a mold colony forms, it slowly devours the affected surfaces, eventually causing irreversible damage that requires the surfaces to be removed and replaced. Ignoring mold growth will not only allow it to cause deeper damage to the affected surfaces, but allow it to spread to new areas of your property.
In addition to property damage, mold growth in a home or building can lead to a variety of negative health effects from allergic reactions to serious infections. Mold related health effects are triggered by exposure to the mold spores, and the longer one is exposed to the mold, the worse these health effects will become. Common allergic reactions to mold growth include itchy eyes and throat, skin irritation, coughing, and nasal congestion among others. Those who experience prolonged exposure may develop asthma or respiratory infections.
