Your home or building is almost always at risk for mold because the spores that lead to mold growth are always present in the air. When there is excess moisture or humidity in your home, the spores are more likely to form into mold because they need moisture to survive. Once mold forms, it feeds on the affected surfaces and releases its spores to spread the growth to new areas, resulting in significant damage. Those inside your home or building are also at risk of negative health effects caused by mold the longer they are exposed.
ServiceMaster Professional Services (SVMPS) can remove mold from homes and businesses in Cambridge, MN with our mold remediation services. We can effectively contain and remove mold growth, repair or replace damaged materials, and fix the moisture source that caused the mold. We can also find and remove hidden mold with advanced testing.
Problems with Mold
Mold is a fungus that can grow just about anywhere if it has a source of moisture and a food source. Mold commonly uses cellulose, an organic material found in wood and drywall, as its food source which is why it can cause such serious damage. As the mold eats away at the surfaces, the materials become weak and lose their structural integrity. This can lead to very serious property damage.
The possible health problems caused by mold exposure are as big of a concern as the property damage mold can cause. Those who are exposed to the spores can experience allergic reactions such as coughing, nasal congestion, headaches, skin irritation, and itchy eyes and throat. Longer exposure can lead to much worse health effects including respiratory infections.
