Mold growth is a serious problem when it appears in homes and buildings because it can cause major damage and health issues. Mold typically appears in areas with excess moisture because it needs moisture to survive and it eats away at affected materials which can lead to significant damage. Once mold growth appears, it is likely to spread as it releases its spores which will increase the damage. Those exposed to mold may experience allergic reactions or even worse health conditions in time.
If you find mold in your home or business, you need to act fast to limit the damage. ServiceMaster All Care Restoration provides mold remediation services to remove mold from affected homes and buildings in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding areas. Our professionals will safely find and remove all mold growth and ensure that your property is cleaned up and restored.
Damage Caused by Mold
Mold can cause a considerable amount of damage because of how it spreads and affects the materials it grows on. Mold is likely to appear anywhere there is excess moisture or water damage and it feeds on cellulose which is a substance found in most building materials. As the mold devours the affected materials, these materials become stained and weakened. Affected ceilings, walls, and flooring may lose their structural integrity.
The possible health issues are another major concern with mold as exposure to mold spores can result in allergic reactions. Those affected are likely to experience headaches, nasal congestion, itchy eyes and throat, coughing, and skin irritation. Longer exposure to mold can result in more serious conditions like asthma and even respiratory infections.
One of the problems with mold is that it can appear in hidden areas such as behind walls and ceilings. Hidden mold is dangerous because it often has time to spread and cause significant damage before it is discovered. The following will help you determine if there is hidden mold in your home:
- Musty odors
- Wet spots on walls or ceilings
- Peeling wallpaper
- Dark spots on walls and ceilings
- Bubbling drywall
- Unexplained allergic reactions
