A natural substance, mold is beneficial for the environment, but the same cannot be said when it develops indoors in your home or business. Usually, mold grows inside of properties because of a moisture problem or water damage. This is because moisture is the main component needed for mold growth to develop. If not contained and removed, then the mold problem will worsen as its spores spread and cause damage to new areas. Mold can also cause health problems, and these issues will become more severe as time goes on. ServiceMaster of Baltimore provides Ellicott City, MD, with mold remediation services for residential and commercial properties affected by mold growth. We employ IICRC-certified technicians qualified to conduct mold abatement. To ensure effective mold removal, our staff uses advanced remediation techniques.
Issues with Mold Growth
Mold causes obvious physical damage to your property’s surfaces, including common building materials like wood and drywall. This harm is a result of the mold using the organic substances in the materials as a food source. That said, the mold will damage the material as the mold colonies eat away at it. From swelling to discoloration, mold can damage surfaces in numerous ways. Eventually, mold will cause the materials to deteriorate and can even lead to structural problems. If the damage is bad enough, it’ll be permanent and may leave a musty odor.
The less obvious problems that mold causes are the negative health effects. Just because they’re less obvious, that doesn’t mean they aren’t concerning. Exposure to mold can cause headaches, itchy eyes and/or throat, nasal congestion, coughing, skin irritation, and other allergic reactions. Prolonged exposure can lead to worsened symptoms, such as asthma or respiratory infections. Knowing this, it’s important to address mold growth immediately to limit the potential for such health problems.
