Mold spores are a constant natural presence in the air and when they find the right conditions, they can cause mold to grow just about anywhere, including within your home or building. The appearance of mold indoors can cause several problems from minor surface damage to severe structural damage, and even health issues. It is very important to react quickly to any amount of mold growth because the mold is always a threat to spread. The surfaces and objects affected by mold will also sustain worse damage as the mold colonies devour them slowly over time.

Our technicians are equipped to find all mold growth within the building and we will ensure that the mold is removed and that the damaged materials are restored or replaced.
Threat of Mold Growth
Mold is most likely to form in areas exposed to moisture because the spores need moisture and a food source to survive. This is why mold is a common problem after a water damage issue. The main food source used by mold colonies indoors is cellulose which is found in wood, drywall, and other building materials. As the affected surfaces are devoured by the mold colonies, they may become discolored and weakened which can lead to very serious structural damage. It is possible for affected surfaces and materials to sustain permanent damage from the mold if given enough time.
While property damage is a major concern when to comes to mold growth, you should also be aware of the possible health effects. Exposure to mold spores can trigger a number of allergic reactions such as coughing, headaches, itchy eyes and throat, skin irritation, and nasal congestion and these symptoms will get worse the longer someone is exposed. More serious conditions like respiratory infections and asthma can occur with prolonged exposure.
