Mold is a dangerous fungus that can contribute to significant structural damage as well as threaten the health and safety of everyone on your property. It is typically caused by a water damage issue or excess moisture in a particular area. While the building materials in your home or building offer one type of food source for mold to grow, known as cellulose, water is the other required ingredient. If it’s allowed to sit in the affected space for long periods of time, it will consume the affected materials and cause serious damage.

Issues Caused by Mold
One of the biggest problems caused by mold includes property damage. The fungus is most commonly found in bathrooms, attics, kitchens, basements, and crawlspaces; however, it can grow anywhere in areas affected by water damage.
The prime ingredient needed for mold growth is cellulose, which is commonly found in modern building materials including drywall, carpeting, and insulation. With the added ingredient of water, natural mold spores will accumulate within these areas and contribute to its growth. Because mold growth uses the affected surfaces and materials as its food source, it can cause very serious damage.
One of the biggest signs of mold growth includes heightened allergic reactions, asthma problems, and even respiratory infections. As soon as the fungus is located, action must be taken to have it removed right away.
