The presence of mold in your home or building is dangerous because it can cause serious property damage as well as health issues from exposure. Mold growth is a common side effect of water damage because it needs moisture to grow and survive. Once mold growth appears, it begins to cause damage to the affected surfaces, and it can spread to new areas of the property by dispersing its spores. Any hesitation to address a mold issue will increase the risk for structural damage as well as the risk of related health effects.
South Pacific Environmental provides mold remediation services in Post Falls, ID to remove mold growth from homes and commercial buildings. We can effectively test for mold growth using infrared technology and we use specialized chemical cleaners to remove the mold from affected surfaces and objects. Once the mold is removed, we will repair and restore the damaged areas.
Issues Caused by Mold Growth
Mold can damage the affected materials in several ways. Mold growth typically affects building materials and furnishings that contain its main food source, cellulose, such as wood, drywall, insulation, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, and carpeting. As the mold eats away at the affected materials, these materials may become stained and weakened. With enough time, structural elements like wood and drywall can become structurally unstable, leading to significant damage. If mold is not removed quickly, the damage will worsen, and it will spread to new areas.
The health issues associated with mold are a major concern as mold exposure can cause allergic reactions and possibly infections. It is common for mold exposure to cause reactions that include coughing, nasal congestion, trouble breathing, skin irritation, headaches, and itchy eyes, nose, and throat. Those who are exposed to mold for too long are at risk of developing a respiratory infection or asthma. Taking care of a mold problem right away will decrease the risk of these health issues.
