What is Mold?

 Mold is a microscopic fungi. There are thousands of different kinds of mold, and can be found indoors and outdoors. They spread by producing spores and grow in damp, humid, and warm conditions. Colonies of mold can begin to form within 24 hours after water intrusion. Indoors, it is found in areas where the levels of humidity are high, such as: an attic, basement, bathroom, outside in a crawl space, or around other areas that contain plumbing. Once mold begins to spread it’s spores can survive harsh conditions. If mold is left unattended for long periods of time it can damage walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, framing and more. Indoors mold growing on a surface can look fuzzy, have a slimy texture, or look like a stain. It can also be black, brown, white, green, yellow and other colors. Since mold needs moisture to thrive, fixing the moisture issues you may have can prevent mold from growing. If you’ve had a mold problem in the past it is important to note that any porous material that was previously infected with mold (such as: carpet, curtains, drywall, tile, or clothing) but was not discarded will be more susceptible to mold growth in the future.

How Can Mold Affect Your Health?

If mold is detected, or you suspect there may be mold, in your home you should plan for its removal immediately no matter what type of mold it is. Some people are more sensitive to mold than others, but there are several potential health risks involving mold. The most common are allergic reactions such as: red itchy eyes and skin, wheezing, stuffy nose, some may even develop more serious respiratory complications including asthma. Individuals with a weakened immune system, and those who have received an organ transplant are more likely to get infections and complications. The elderly and infants are at greater risk of health problems when exposed to mold. Other serious health risks including chronic pain have also been linked to mold sensitivity. It is imperative to have a professional team that is certified in mold removal do your remediation projects.
