Mold is an unwanted organism that can cause discoloration, physical damage to your property, and even negative health effects for you and your family. Even a small amount of mold growth can spread throughout the property, eventually causing decay and collapse. The best thing you can do to protect yourself and your home from the dangerous effects of mold is to call a certified professional as quickly as possible to safely remove it. In Riverview, SC, United Water Restoration Group of Charlotte is the go-to company for home and business owners for professional mold remediation. Attempting to remove mold with incorrect techniques can often cause more harm than good.
What Causes Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus with many different varieties that grows anywhere that has moisture and enough organic food to support its survival. This can be on the surface of walls, ceilings, and floors, as well as in carpeting, insulation, and other porous materials. The important thing to remember about mold is that it will grow wherever it finds nutrients and moisture, regardless of how clean your home may seem otherwise. Be aware of the following regarding mold growth:
- Mold growth can happen within 48 hours of water damage or an increase in moisture.
- Flooding, slow leaks, condensation, broken pipes, or high humidity can create conditions in which mold can thrive.
- Cellulose, which is found in wood and drywall, is a common organic food source for mold
Damage Caused by Black Mold
Mold actively feeds off of building materials such as wood and drywall, breaking them down and causing severe structural damage as it takes root. Because it only requires moisture and an organic food source to survive, mold can spread in your home quickly to areas in which you may not even notice it. When we perform mold remediation, we inspect your home carefully for all traces of mold growth to make sure it is eliminated completely.
In addition to the damage it causes your property, mold exposure can also lead to adverse health effects including:
- Nasal and sinus congestion
- Sore throat
- Chest tightness
- Trouble breathing
- Skin and eye irritation
- Upper respiratory tract infections
Mold can wreak havoc on your home even in a short period of time. To most reliably prevent mold from growing in the first place, adhere to the following tips:
- Keep indoor humidity between 30 and 50 percent and measure regularly with a humidity meter.
- Dry off surfaces that are wet from condensation.
- Keep your kitchen and bathroom well-ventilated.
- Lower the humidity in your home with a dehumidifier or air conditioning.
- Fix areas where you have noticed moisture or condensation.
- Use mold-resistant materials and products in your home.

"Highly recommend using this company. I experienced some water leaks in my house due to the recent storm. My Realtor connected me to United Water Restoration Group, they called me right away and came to my house within the hour. Checked my leaks and quickly confirmed all was dry. Very responsive and professional. Will use them again if I experience this issue again."

"This is our second water leak in this house and we called United Water Restoration to help us out. William arrive in 30 mins which surprised me. He told me we were still in good hands and got straight to work. He gave me Joel’s information, the Operation Manager. Joel was amazing to deal with, as he helped me through the insurance process. Jaren was a pleasure to work with as he helped me through the reconstruction. All in all Rob’s team is still top notch and I will forever use their services."

“The entire team at UWR has been impressive to work with. A special shoutout to Chris and William for walking me through the process, answering my calls at all hours and being prompt and professional at each interaction. When they come to work, they leave my home better than they found it, careful to protect my belongings and clean up all debris. They are true partners, working with my Insurance company to fight for what's right. I am especially impressed by the engagement from all levels including from Robert, their President, calling me at 5:00 on a Friday to reassure me that things will be handled to my satisfaction.”
