Mold in Your Home or Business
It’s disgusting when you find mold growing on old food in your refrigerator – that’s something you can control; but what about the mold in your home or business that spreads because of untreated water damage? How can you get rid of mold when you may not even know it is there, or how bad it is? Mold contamination can begin in your home if you had a leaking pipe, a roof leak, water damage from a storm or sewer backup, fire damage not properly cleaned up, or for hidden reasons such as water seepage underground or through the foundation. Washing the area with bleach won’t take care of the problem, and in most cases, any activity you try for mold cleanup can make the problem worse. Think of mold as a hidden monster with the ability to grow quickly, eat what it needs to thrive, and spread invisibly throughout your home – causing not only property damage but also posing a health risk to you and your family. In as little as 48 hours, mold grows in damp and humid conditions, or in wet areas that have not been properly dried and cleaned. Mold inside a building always has plenty to eat because it thrives on the organic materials found in wood and drywall. And, tiny mold spores move through the building with the flow of air movement. Mold exposure is an urgent issue as far as your health is concerned. Black mold can cause allergic reactions in people that can become serious and long-lasting. While a physician can best determine the cause, many people have attributed the following symptoms to black mold:
- Respiratory issues
- Skin irritation and inflammation
- Fatigue, nausea, and mental impairment
- Suppressed immune system
- Irritation of the mucous membranes
