Mold in your home or business is a serious issue whether there is light mold growth in one spot or mold colonies throughout the building. Mold growth often starts when there is excess water or moisture in the home because mold spores need moisture to grow. The colonies typically form on surfaces such as drywall, insulation, and wood because these materials provide it with cellulose which it uses as food.
If you ignore mold growth in your home or building, the damage to the affected materials will get worse and the risk of related health effects will increase. ServiceMaster of Laurel provides mold remediation services to remove mold growth from homes and commercial buildings in Laurel, MS. Our technicians will accurately assess the mold growth and remove it with our advanced cleaning methods and equipment.
Dangers of Mold Growth
The presence of mold in your home or building is a threat to your property and your health. It will occur within a day or two of experiencing water damage which makes it important to check for mold if you have had issues with excess water. Mold growth can cause deep structural, and even permanent damage to the affected surfaces because it slowly eats away at the materials.
Mold colonies will also disperse their spores which not only spreads the growth to new areas, but increases the risk of health effects from mold exposure. These health effects can include allergic reactions including nasal congestion, skin irritation, itchy eyes and throat, and coughing as well as serious infections and asthma.
