There are many types of molds that can infest homes and businesses. While some are more harmful than others, the CDC recommends removing any mold you find. It isn’t always obvious when you have mold growing. It can grow behind walls, in attics, and basements. The rule of thumb is if there is anywhere that is consistently damp, or you have had a water leak in your home, you probably have some mold growing that should be dealt with.
It has been shown that healthy people exposed to mold can experience symptoms of coughing, wheezing, and other asthma-like characteristics. Prolonged exposure can increase the risk of infections or other respiratory illnesses.
No matter the type of mold, or how you believe it is affecting you, the CDC recommends removal of any type of mold you encounter.
Mold & Moisture: What Are the Best Options for Mold Removal?
Where there is moisture, you will often find mold. Leaky ceilings, damp basements, or steamy bathrooms can all be prime locations for mold growth. Control and prevention of mold growth require you to be quick to respond to any place where there is excess moisture.
Vents over kitchens
Cleaning up after floods
No treatment of mold is complete without also fixing the source of the moisture as even a single leftover spore will cause the problem to return when conditions are right.
Once you have mold growing, it won’t ever go away on its own. You can dry it out, to make it an inhospitable place for future growth, but the existing mold will still need to be dealt with. We suggest Dry Fogging.
