What No One Tells You About Mold Removal And Remediation
Mold is the silent trouble maker in many homes, businesses and vehicles throughout the Ft. Lauderdale area and all of Southern Florida. The humid, damp weather in South Florida serves as the perfect breeding ground for mold to grow in homes and businesses throughout the area.
What causes it? Though sometimes storms and hurricanes can be behind mold growth, the usual cause is water damage due to leaking pipes, leaking windows and flooding.
Mold is notorious for spreading once it makes an appearance on your property. This is because it continually releases its spores, which latch on to any area with moisture and an organic food source. In homes and offices, this is particularly troubling because common building elements (such as wood, drywall, and more) contain cellulose – a natural food source of mold. If not addressed, mold will spread throughout your property, weaken structural elements, discolor affected areas, and release a variety of unpleasant odors.
Lastly, did you know that 93% of chronic sinus infections are attributed to mold? It can also can put the health of you and your family at risk, especially young children and seniors. Mold causes a variety of allergic reactions, respiratory infections, and other health issues. Many people don’t realize that during flu and cold season, they may NOT actually have the flu…it may be just an allergic reaction to mold!
Right And Wrong Mold Removal And Remediation Methods
— And Little Pointers That Will Save You Time And Money
Typically, when people see mold in their home or business the first thing they reach for is a bottle of bleach. However, bleach should never be used to kill the fungus on porous surfaces such as drywall, concrete block, and wood. Since bleach is about 90 percent water you are actually adding to your current mold issue if you use the chemical to treat the mold. The water in the bleach saturates the spores and promotes growth. When porous materials have mold on them the fungus cannot be properly killed with regular household cleaners.
The key to reducing the spread of mold and minimizing mold removal costs is a rapid and appropriate response by state certified and experienced mold remediation specialists.
