Blue mold What Are The Top Five Things You Need To Know About Mold Remediation?

Mold can create many problems for a home or business owner; you won’t know there’s any issue ahead of time - a colony will be discovered, and you’re left having to manage it. 

What Are Some Important Basic Mold FAQs For You To Understand?

  1. Mold is very common in buildings and homes. Mold will grow in moist places, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes or where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.
  2. Everyone can practice mold prevention and keep their premises safe from an infestation. Once one has established itself, however, you may need professional help to remediate it; a mold infestation can never be wholly eradicated
  3. Mold is found both indoors and outdoors. It can enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, and heating and air conditioning systems. Mold in the air outside can also attach itself to clothing, shoes, and pets and can be carried indoors.
  4. Some people are sensitive to mold. For these people, exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, red or itchy eyes, or skin. Some people, who suffer from mold allergies or asthma, may have more intense reactions.
  5. You can control mold growth by:
  • Controlling humidity levels;
  • Promptly fixing leaky roofs, windows, and pipes;
  • Thoroughly cleaning and drying after flooding;
  • Ventilating shower, laundry, and cooking areas.
