Mold growth is oftentimes as unpleasant as it is dangerous. Not only does it look and smell disgusting, but it can structurally damage your home or office space, and trigger health complications in those exposed to it, as well. For these reasons and more, we offer full mold removal services here at ServiceMaster of the Shore Area to those in the Ocean City, NJ, and Egg Harbor Township, NJ, areas.
Mold is notorious for how easily it can spread its spores. This is why it is absolutely essential that you contact mold remediation experts quickly if you find it on your property.
Common places in which mold tends to grow include:
- Around air conditioning units
- Behind toilets and refrigerators
- Behind walls that contain plumbing
- Beneath kitchen and bathroom sinks
- In attics with poor ventilation
- In basements and crawl spaces (especially if they leak or flood)
- Under wet carpet
These areas attract mold because they are often moist and offer some sort of organic food source. This is all mold needs to thrive. In addition to the areas listed above, mold oftentimes attaches itself to certain structural elements that contain cellulose (a favorite food of mold). These materials include drywall, insulation, and wood.
Structural damage is one of the two main complications associated with mold growth. The second is the health risk taken by those living in close proximity to the mold. Respiratory infections, allergic reactions, and even asthma can be triggered by prolonged exposure to mold.
There are multiple varieties of mold, and a few of the more common types are aspergillus, cladosporium, and stachybotrys atra (black mold). While these differentiations may not mean much to the untrained eye, with the exception of black mold, our technicians understand them, know where they like to grow, and are among the best in the industry at eliminating them.
