Unfortunately, mold growth is a common problem within buildings in both commercial and residential settings. This is because mold does not need much to originally take hold, and it spreads rapidly once it does. It can have adverse effects on the structural integrity of your property, as well as your health. ServiceMaster of the Shore Area offers full mold removal services to home and business owners in the Middletown, NJ, area.
How Mold Behaves
The primary reasons why mold can so easily and effectively take hold and spread throughout your property are simple, but very difficult to address preemptively. First, all mold needs in order to grow is an organic food source and excess moisture. This may sound trivial, but the vast majority of homes and offices are constructed with materials that mold can feed on (they include insulation, wood, drywall, and more). The specific source is the cellulose within these materials. This means that the factor most in your control is excess moisture. Second, mold releases its spores regularly, and especially when contacted. Essentially, if you see or smell mold on your property, it pays to bring in professionals.
While mold can grow almost anywhere, there are several common locations to note. Our experts have compiled the following list:
- Under bathroom and kitchen sinks
- In basements, attics, and crawl spaces (in large part due to poor ventilation and leaks)
- Behind toilets and refrigerators
- Under wet carpets
- Within walls that contain plumbing
- Around air conditioning units
While mold may seem like a simple nuisance, it can actually be quite dangerous to those exposed to it on a regular basis. Close contact with mold and its spores has been linked to allergic reactions, respiratory infections, and other health complications. It can even eat away at structural elements of your building, as we alluded to above.
