The Risks Of Mold Growth
Mold is a serious concern for your home. While you might have seen this occur in your home throughout your life growing up, namely in the dark and moisture ridden basement, mold is better understood today. With potential health effects linked to exposure, removing active colonies growing in your residence should be a priority upon discovery.
However, there are reasons why you should resolve to remove mold damage in your home quickly. The better that you can appreciate the harmful effects that this fungal colony has on the contents and the structural integrity of your home, the more prepared you are to combat it on sight.
Fortunately, this microbial growth is not one that you have to face alone. Our remediators at SERVPRO have the unique training to prepare them for all varieties of mold growth and the best approaches to remove the colonies. This experience and expertise prove invaluable in fully removing mold and its damages from your residence.
One of the initial things that you must realize is the simplicity with which mold can grow. The only necessary ingredients to this hazardous presence are moisture and warmth. Spores naturally exist in the environment inside of your home on a microscopic level but only have the opportunity to seat once the other conditions get met in the affected area.
This mold growth can occur in as little as 72 hours once the conditions get met. The colonization occurs on organic materials within this area such as drywall, flooring, the contents of the room, or other construction materials. Within a brief period, the thriving colony can degrade the material and weaken it to the point of ineffectiveness.
Once you can appreciate both the potential health effects and the structural concerns of mold growth in your home, you can appreciate the importance of resolving the issue quickly.
