Detecting and Preventing Mold Growth
Mold can be a serious problem if not quickly and properly remediated. Mold cannot grow without mold spores. Unfortunately, it’s not difficult for outdoor mold spores to travel inside. Once in your home or business, the spores will seek out a warm, moist area to grow on. When that mold is disturbed, more spores will be circulated into the air and will continue to spread and grow in new areas.
Mold is not always visible, but it can cause allergic reactions and emit a distinctive odor. Even if you aren’t experiencing allergic reactions and can’t see or smell anything, mold could still be growing. You may have a hidden mold problem—where mold grows in areas including under wallpaper, behind drywall, under floorboards or carpeting, and any other areas affected by water damage. If you see or suspect mold, give us a call right away.
