Top Priorities to Remedy Your Home of Mold Growth
Once you have confirmed there is mold growth in your home or office, be aware that mold spores can be toxic. Respiratory protection is recommended when you are entering areas of concentrated mold. Once our experts have arrived, rest assured we will get the job done efficiently.
Your first priority should be the health and safety of yourself, your family, and anyone else who may contact the mold spores. Wear a respirator mask and goggles when inside the areas affected. Open windows and doors to provide fresh air. Try to stay out of the affected areas as much as possible to avoid exposure.
The Importance of Immediate Mold Remediation
Mold remediation is one of the most important aspects of recovering your home from stormwater damage. A mold-infestation is terrible for the house, bad for family health, and bad for your lifestyle. And we don't say that lightly.
Mold likes to grow on the backside of water damaged drywall and inside or underneath water damaged furniture. It wants wood and fabric most of all but will grow on anything damp enough. Mold will eat through wood and fabric, slowly replacing the material with mold-mass.
Mold constantly exudes spores that are potentially toxic to humans, especially in high concentrations, and are continually looking for new places to start new colonies. Therefore, the longer your home is damp, the more colonies will take root in wet surfaces. And you'll need to get rid of any mold that did take hold before the home is safe to live in again.
