Mold can grow in almost any area of your home following water damage. Not only is mold unsightly, but it can lead to a number of health problems including asthma, allergies, and sinus issues. Identifying and properly removing mold can improve your air quality and prevent long-term damage to your home.
What Is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that grows when exposed to excess moisture. When left untreated, mold will begin to grow and feed on the material around it. In as little as 48 hours, mold can cause damage and put the integrity of your home at risk. When mold grows, it releases spores into the air. These mold spores can cause respiratory issues and other serious health problems in both humans and pets.
The most dangerous type of mold is called Stachybotrys chartarum, also known as black mold. This type of mold can easily grow on drywall, carpets, wood, and ceiling tiles after a flood.
If you suspect you may have black mold, Blaze Restoration can help. Our team of professionals is trained to safely remove toxic mold and mitigate damage to the structure of your home.
How to Identify Mold
Mold is easy to spot when you know where to look and has a very distinct musty, wet, and stale odor. Areas with high humidity and poor ventilation such under sinks, around windows, or in between bathroom tiles are the most common areas where mold will grow.
Being able to identify mold quickly is crucial to protecting your home and your family’s health.
