What is Mold?
We all have probably encountered mold at one time or another. It might have been in the shower or on a stale piece of bread or cheese. There are many different species of mold, but all molds share some common characteristics.
• Molds thrive in moist and humid environments
• Molds require an organic food source. One common food source is cellulose, which is found in building
materials such as wood and drywall
• Molds are spread by microscopic airborne particles called ‘spores’
Molds and mold spores are naturally present in the outdoor environment all around us. However, indoor mold growth can become a tenacious problem. Mold spreads rapidly and produces an unpleasant musty odor. A significant amount of mold can impact indoor air quality and can be difficult and costly to remove. Mold contamination is a growing concern for homeowners, property managers, insurance providers and restoration companies. If you have a mold problem, call the professionals at ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration in Highlands Ranch, Colorado area.
Mold – What is the best defense?
Mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours. To prevent the spread of mold, it is important to react quickly in the event of a water loss. By identifying and eliminating the source of the water and implementing rapid drying processes, mold growth can be curtailed. The most effective drying techniques involve the use of sensitive tools to measure and record the temperature, humidity and moisture content of both the structure and contents of the home or building. Professional water damage restoration can mean the difference between a small water problem and a structure covered with mold.
