Why is Mold Such a Big Deal?


It might be easy to put your mold problem off, but it’s important to take care of it fast.

Mold is something that strikes fear into the hearts of many homeowners and business owners who understand the toll it can take on the health of their building and their health. However, many people still don’t realize the seriousness of mold growth on their property. Why exactly is mold such a big deal? Why is mold remediation necessary?

Mold Can Take a Toll on Your Health

First off, mold can negatively affect your health and the heath of everyone in your building. Mold can cause common allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Beyond these severe effects, it can cause many different common health issues like wheezing, difficulty breathing, a persistent sore throat, congested sinuses, skin rashes, and skin irritation. The longer that you wait to hire mold remediation services, the longer that the mold can wreak havoc on your health and the health of your workers or family.

What Should You Do if You Find Mold?

If you find mold anywhere on your property, you should take rapid steps to hire a mold remediation company like ServiceMaster. Mold spores are microscopic and can cling to just about anything, so they are incredibly difficult to completely remove. If you don’t get the job done right the first time, the mold will start growing back the second that it can. Mold remediation involves completely removing the problem and then re-testing to make sure that it’s gone. If you settle for do-it-yourself mold remediation, you can rest assured that you missed some. Since mold it so small it can be found just about anywhere, from ceiling tiles, to underneath carpet pads, to inside ductwork and walls, to behind wallpaper. Only professionals will be able to properly inspect your home and conduct mold remediation services.
