Mold is a dangerous material that can cause considerable damage in your home or building and put your health at risk. It often appears when there is an issue with water damage because water allows the naturally occurring mold spores to form into mold colonies. Mold growth can cause considerable damage because it uses the materials it grows on as a food source. Over time, the damage will become considerably worse and the risk of related health effects will increase. It is best to address mold growth as soon as you find it.

Problems Caused by Mold Growth
The most obvious problem caused by mold growth is the property damage. Mold is most likely to form in areas with a lot of moisture including kitchens, bathrooms, attics, and crawlspaces and it can appear anywhere that is affected by water damage. The main indoor food source for mold is cellulose which is an organic material found in wood, drywall, insulation, and other common building materials. This means that mold colonies literally devour the affected surfaces which can lead to significant damage. Building materials affected by mold are likely to experience serious structural damage in enough time.
Property damage is not the only issue with mold growth as mold can have a dangerous effect on your health. Exposure to mold can cause allergic reactions including headaches, coughing, trouble breathing, runny nose, and itchy eyes and throat as well as infections in more severe cases. The health effects are likely to get worse the longer the mold growth is ignored.
