Mold growth creates a dangerous situation every time it appears in homes and buildings because it causes serious damage and puts health at risk. Mold thrives in areas where there is a moisture source which makes wet and water damaged areas vulnerable. Once it takes hold, it causes damage by eating away at the affected surfaces and materials. Mold growth must be addressed right away to limit the damage and help prevent related health effects.
ServiceMaster All Care Restoration provides mold remediation services to help remove mold growth from homes and businesses in Tempe, AZ. Our technicians will contain and remove the mold growth with advanced remediation methods and restore or remove the affected materials. We will also take steps to keep your property mold free once we finish.
Damage Caused by Mold
All cases of mold growth need immediate action as mold will spread and the risk of severe damage and health effects will increase the longer the mold is not removed. Mold growth causes major damage because it feeds on organic substances within common building materials like wood and drywall. This causes the materials to become weakened which can result in structural damage to the home or building.
The other major threat with mold growth is the risk of health effects from exposure. Mold can cause those who are exposed to experience allergic reactions including headaches, coughing, skin irritation, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes and throat. Long-term exposure can cause more serious conditions like respiratory infections.
One of the problems with mold is that it can appear in hidden areas and cause damage before it is discovered. The following are signs that you may have hidden mold growth:
- Wet or dark spots on walls and ceilings
- Musty odors
- Peeling wallpaper
- Sudden allergies
- Bubbles in drywall
