Mold is a pesky home invader that can cause very serious issues for your property and your health. Its growth is usually triggered by moisture and once it takes hold, it can spread to new, and sometimes hidden areas of your home. The longer you ignore a mold situation, the more the damage will spread and put your property at risk for severe structural damage. The health effects caused by mold exposure will also get worse the longer it is left to grow and spread. At ServiceMaster of Sioux Falls and Luverne, we provide complete mold remediation services to remove mold growth from homes and commercial buildings in the Sioux Falls, SD and southwest Minnesota area. We will help uncover mold growth throughout your property and ensure that it is completely removed with our advanced remediation techniques.
Dangers of Mold Growth
The first problem that people notice when they have mold growth is that it is unsightly. Mold can quickly form on most household surfaces and building materials such as wood and drywall because these materials contain cellulose that feeds the mold spores. The growth starts out as discoloration and as the mold eats away at the affected surfaces, the damage gets deeper and can eventually lead to structural damage. Mold growth in hidden areas is especially dangerous because it can cause very serious damage before it is discovered.
The potential health issues are another serious concern with mold. The increased level of mold spores in the air from the growth can trigger a number of allergic reactions including coughing, stuffy nose, skin and eye irritation, and itchy throat among others. Those who are exposed to mold for too long are at risk for more serious conditions like respiratory infections and asthma. Reacting quickly to mold growth will not only help limit the damage, but also prevent serious health effects.
