Mold Remediation

Most people know what mold is, which is a type of fungus. Mold grows on various surfaces, as well as products, including food products. Mold can grow in homes or even office buildings, and when this happens, the building structure can be affected, but more importantly and serious, it can lead to health issues.

When mold has grown in the home or building, then mold removal may be needed. However, you shouldn't try to remove the mold yourself and only hire a professional who is trained to remove mold. As for where it tends to grow, it usually grows where there is moisture, such as between walls or areas that are generally not accessible. When you notice you have mold, then you should contact a professional as soon as possible.

Many people have probably seen mold grow in their bathroom, in places such as tiles that have not been cleaned for awhile. However, it can be found in other places such as damp clothes or wet ones that have been left around for days, and didn't dry in that time. Basements, areas that contain pipes and areas where a flood has occurred, are all places where mold can generally grow. Also, concrete that is damped may be another area where mold can thrive.  

As previously mentioned, mold will commonly grow in wet and damp areas, and can lead to serious health issues if not checked, and this includes health issues such as respiratory problems and allergic reactions. An itchy throat, coughing, sneezing and eyes can also occur in people and pets when they are in the vicinity of mold. It's also worth noting that there are a few studies out there that claim that exposure to mold, mainly high levels of it, can lead to neurologically problems.

HVAC systems is also where mold can grow, and if this happens, then mold spores could end up being blown all around the home. This can lead to health complications, and affect a person's skin and their respiratory system. If leakage happens and results in mold growth, then you will want to hire a professional and have them inspect the walls, because sometimes mold can grow right in-between the walls and might be hard to detect, therefore a professional is needed, as they will be able to find out if there is any mold and then remove it, if they discover that it has indeed grown in-between the walls.
