Mold infestations should always be removed as soon as possible following their discovery, primarily because mold can cause serious allergy problems for people who are especially susceptible. These allergies often appear as cold-like symptoms, respiratory trouble, or sinus congestion. The severity of the symptoms depends upon the individual.
Mold propagates through the use of mold spores, which if inhaled in high enough concentrations may cause many of these physical issues. It is important to know the type of mold that is present in the home, as well as the spore count. This information may be gleaned by hiring a mold professional to perform an assessment including a mold test. This will also help determine what type of mold remediation process should be completed.
Mold is most likely to be present wherever there is a water leak or signs of water damage resulting in higher than normal humidity or moisture levels. Foundation cracks or leaky roofs may also be sources of moisture problems, as well as those areas without proper ventilation.
Mold should be removed for any number of reasons; in addition to the physical problems it presents, mold also works on the structure of the property, destroying any surface on which it is growing, as well as causing a deterioration of the overall air quality in the home.
Mold removal consists of two steps, the removal of the mold growth, and the treatment of the affected area to prevent the mold from returning. This process includes cleaning, disinfection, sanitizing, as well as the increase of ventilation and light in the area where the mold was discovered. By making the area inhospitable to mold, then and only then can there be any guarantee of the mold growth not returning.
