The presence of mold in your home or building is dangerous because it can affect your health and cause significant damage. Mold can appear anywhere within your property where it has a source of moisture and it eats the organic substances found within common building materials which leads to serious damage. The longer mold is in your home, the more damage it will cause and the farther it will spread. The risk of related health effects also increases the longer someone is exposed. You need to call a licensed professional right away if you have mold.
At ServiceMaster All Care Restoration, we provide complete mold remediation services to help affected homes and businesses in Scottsdale, AZ. Our technicians can safely find and remove all mold growth on your property and repair the damage it caused. We can also address the moisture source that caused the mold growth.
Dangers of Indoor Mold
Mold growth needs to be addressed right away because it can cause major damage to the affected materials. The reason mold is destructive is because it feeds on cellulose which is commonly found in materials like wood, drywall, wallpaper, and insulation. All mold spores need is a source of moisture and they will form mold colonies on these materials. As the mold eats away at the wood and drywall within walls and ceilings, severe structural damage can eventually occur.
The health issues caused by mold are another major cause for concern. People who are exposed to mold can experience a number of allergic reactions including coughing, trouble breathing, nasal congestion, headaches, skin irritation, and itchy eyes and throat. More serious conditions like asthma and respiratory infections may develop with prolonged exposure.
It is very common for mold to appear in hidden areas like behind walls and ceilings. When this happens, the mold is likely to cause significant damage before you realize it is there. You need to always look for the following signs of hidden mold:
- Peeling wallpaper
- Bubbling drywall
- Musty odors
- Wet spots or dark spots on walls and ceilings
- Allergic reactions
