Why You Should Care About Mold
- If there is mold growth in your property another concern is that growth inside the building can be a symptom of a much larger issue. Mold can be caused by leaks, condensation, humidity that is not properly ventilated and is a signal that water damage may be present.
- Mold thrives in homes. Homes are made up of materials such as wood, drywall, paper, and have moisture in them, which all supply the mold and allow it to grow. Eventually, after long exposure, the mold can even cause structural damage to your property.
- Medical research is continually being done to determine the health hazards associated with mold. MoldSensitized.com wrote “One of the latest and most blunt interpretations of this growing body of medical evidence was released by the California Department of Public Health. This document clearly states: “CDPH has concluded that the presence of water damage, dampness, visible mold or mold odor in schools, workplaces, residences and other indoor environments is unhealthy.”
If there is mold in your home, seek out professional assistance to ensure that the root of the problem is discovered and fully removed before you begin the restoration process. If there is a remnant left, it could result in a recurring problem and a greater expense. It is important during the mold removal process that proper testing is done to ensure that all traces have been removed.
