Residential Mold Damage & Recovery
Mold Crisis & Damage Overview
In moist conditions, mold can develop and grow within 48 hours – often where you can’t see it. Mold will grow on any damp surface: In walls, under carpet, behind drywall, and even in insulation. Water infiltration from many sources – including burst or leaking pipes, blocked gutters, inadequate roof ventilation or even ductwork condensation – can all contribute to a mold problem
A mold infestation can pose a serious risk to the health of you and your family. Mold spores in the air can cause headaches, respiratory issues, skin irritation and even memory loss. Your home can suffer as well, as mold can corrode structural elements.
Removal vs. Remediation
Mold spores are present everywhere, outdoors and in. This makes it impossible to remove all the mold from a building. In fact most buildings contain a “natural” amount of non-toxic mold. However, when toxic mold gets out of hand, removing the contaminated surfaces is critical. Unfortunately, it only fixes your mold crisis for the short-term. For the long-term health of your family, you need to discover and remediate the origin of the toxic mold problem. If the moisture source is not controlled, the mold will return.
