Addressing Mold Damage Found In Your Montgomery Area Home
Addressing Mold Damage
As a naturally occurring portion of our environment, mold has a big job. It breaks down a variety of organic materials, recycling them back into our ecosystem. Every mold you find is not harmful, in fact, some are used to develop vitamins and medicines, like penicillin.
With that in mind, you probably agree that even if we could, we would never want to remove mold from our environment entirely. However, having mold damage in your Montgomery home makes promoting fondness of mold rather difficult. So, you need to understand how mold develops and what makes it tick, putting control over mold within your living environment very possible.
If you understand that most areas that mold can access within your home are often missing one of the three ingredients necessary to flourish properly, when it has all three, things can get out of hand quickly. The mold must have a source of food, a dark location, and water, without any of these, mold sits dormant, possibly for years. SERVPRO technicians take control, eliminate one of the three ingredients and remove contaminated materials to stop the spread fast.
Some species have learned to adapt to hazardous conditions, although this does not affect any of the common types found in our area, without water, our mold cannot grow. When you have a leaky faucet, sink, toilet, or another plumbing issue, mold takes advantage. Same goes for ignoring maintenance on your doors, windows, and flooring. SERVPRO can perform a full inspection of your property and determine what needs to happen to avoid growth.
It all comes down to how healthy you want your indoor living environment to be. As a full-grown healthy person, you have little to fear from the mold. However, excessive exposure to heavy growth can and does affect your health eventually. Having older family members, or small children and infants change things considerably, you should take immediate action to prevent a series of significant health risks, SERVPRO can help.
