It’s not uncommon for mold to develop and grow within homes and buildings, due to numerous potential moisture sources. But it is a big problem that should be addressed right away. It almost always develops near a source of water or moisture, and it will feed the organic materials within your building structure. When it spreads, it releases mold spores into breathing air, which can cause a number of health issues that will only become worse over time.
As soon as you find mold in your home or business, contact a mold remediation professional right away to prevent it from spreading. ServiceMaster All Care Restoration is available in Peoria, AZ and the surrounding areas to provide mold removal services. Our professionals are licensed and trained to remove all mold at the source, repair the affected area, and prevent it from returning.
Issues with Mold
Because it can quickly and easily spread throughout homes and buildings, mold is a big problem. The biggest cause of mold is excess moisture or humidity, including water or flood damage, leaks, overflows, and backups. The cellulose within your property’s building materials, like drywall, insulation, flooring, carpeting and more, is the other ingredient the fungus needs to feed on, making it easy to grow anywhere. As soon as it develops, it can cause stains, rotting, and weakening of the building structure.
Mold can also trigger a number of allergies and breathing issues. For people living with compromised immune systems and asthma, they face the highest risk with mold exposure. The first signs of mold problems will likely be itchy eyes and throat, coughing, skin irritation and nasal congestion. Long-term exposure can lead to respiratory infections and asthma.
While it may not be hard to notice, mold prefers to grow in hidden areas, like behind walls and under floors as well as in the attic, basement, and crawlspace. This is how it is able to thrive long-term until it spreads far enough to trigger health issues.
When looking for mold, notice the following signs:
- Peeling wallpaper
- Wet and dark spots on walls and ceilings
- Bubbling drywall
- Musty odors
