Mold growth is an awful sight in homes and buildings for a number of reasons. Mold can cause considerable damage to the affected surfaces because it uses the materials as its food source, and its ability to disperse its spores can spread the damage while increasing the risk of mold-related health effects. The longer you let mold linger in your home or building, the more likely you are to experience extensive property damage and serious health issues. Our technicians use the latest methods and equipment of the industry to remove all mold growth, and we will help either repair or remove the damaged materials.
Mold typically forms in areas with excess moisture because it needs moisture to survive, and it uses the cellulose in materials like wood and drywall as its food source. The fact that mold colonies literally devour the affected surfaces is why they have the potential to cause so much damage. If given enough time, mold can permanently damage the affected surfaces and cause serious structural issues within your home. The possible health effects of mold are also a cause for alarm as exposure can lead to various allergic reactions and even respiratory infections.
