Although mold is natural, its presence is only beneficial outdoors within the natural environment, not indoors within the confines of your home or business. Mold appears indoors when its spores encounter moisture, so it usually comes as a result of water damage or another moisture concern. Furthermore, mold will spread its spores and cause extensive damage if the mold problem isn’t addressed in a timely manner. Exposure to mold can also lead to health issues, which worsen with more time. With our mold remediation services, ServiceMaster of Baltimore will remove mold from affected homes and businesses in Towson, MD. With IICRC certification in mold abatement, our professional technicians will guarantee thorough mold removal from your property, doing so with advanced remediation techniques.
Issues with Mold Growth
The most noticeable problem mold causes is the physical damage done to the affected surfaces. Mold uses the organic substances in wood, drywall, sheetrock, and other common building materials as a food source, damaging the materials as the fungus eats away at them. The materials may swell, become discolored, deteriorate, and/or suffer structural problems. If the damage is extensive enough, then it might become permanent. Mold also produces a musty odor.
Although less obvious, the health concerns that mold can cause can be serious. If you’re exposed to mold, you can suffer from coughing, headaches, nasal congestion, itchy throat, itchy eyes, and skin irritation among other allergies. If you’re exposed to mold for an extended period, then you can suffer from respiratory infections or asthma. Because of this, you’ll want to take care of any mold growth promptly to prevent these health issues.
