If you have had a mold problem in your house and haven’t yet called for a mold/water removal service, you should take some time off to read about the effects of mold. Mold can affect the structure of a building and also affect the health of the people living in it.
The following is a summary of both the health and material risks that mold poses. A removal service company will eliminate these risks as most mold infestations can be easily eliminated if tackled in the right manner.
Material risks posed by mold
Mold grows and spreads by feeding on organic construction material such as walls, ceiling, drywall etc. Though it might start like a small problem, this can have disastrous effects on a house as it can grow in hidden spaces such as in between walls. If a mold cleanup is not carried out in a timely manner, it can result in several parts of the house being torn down as it could be beyond restoration or repair in the future.
How will a professional mold damage removal company solve your mold removal problem?
A professional mold cleanup company will have years of experience with the mold removal process. They will quickly be able to gauge the growth of the mold and identify all the areas affected by mold. They will also check to see if there is a water leak or source of moisture that is triggering the growth of the mold. They will first stop this leak before they carry on with the mold damage removal process. A removal company will use many different ways to tackle a mold problem. They will kill the mold by decreasing the humidity in the environment. They will do this by using high power dehumidifiers that will keep humidity levels very low. At these levels, it will begin to die and stop growing. They will also use mold cleanup chemicals to kill the mold. A mold damage removal company will usually have a wide range of products, disinfectants and other solutions that will all be approved by the EPA, for use in the mold cleanup process.
Once the mold cleanup is finished, the mold contractor will dispose the mold in the safest manner possible. Improper disposal can easily result in the mold coming back again as it is easily transmitted through the air. Improper disposal can also pose health risks to the people living in the house where the cleanup is taking place.
If you want a comprehensive solution to your problem that will keep both your property and family safe, you really have no other solution than to call in the services of an experienced mold contractor who will provide you with a professional service at a cost that will be very affordable.
