Mold is a result of excess humidity, plumbing pipe leaks, flooding, house fires, and other natural disasters. It is possible to prevent mold growth in residential settings, a tiny spore only needs a bit of water to grow. Mold spores are not visible to the naked eye but the slightest movement can send them flying into the air.
Mold is found everywhere in the environment, such as in the soil. Wind rustles the mold spores lose, sending them into the environment. Wherever the spores land, they can start growing in the ideal environment.
Mold feeds on organic materials like paper, human skin cells, soil, cardboard, human and animal hair, cotton, dust, drywall, wood, and carpet. Preventing further growth of mold is quite a challenge in occupied homes.
Home Inspection For Mold Damage Remediation
The damage caused by mold varies from minor to severe. Once mold is detected in a home, there is little time to delay the appropriate action. The situation becomes even direr when the property owner has no idea what the appropriate action is.
The first step of mold damage remediation is a certified home inspection. This process provides important details that are utilized to determine the appropriate course of action and cost.
Our company, Mold Removal CT requires an inspection of the impacted property. A technician is dispatched to the property to assess the mold damage. Property owners should be fully aware of how the cost of professional mold damage remediation is determined. The severity of mold damage is the primary factor of cost determination. Other factors include labor and repairs.
Appropriate Measures When Dealing With Mold
Mold naturally grows in the environment when it is outside. Long-time exposure to mold in residential settings poses serious health risks. People with respiratory diseases, such as asthma, COPD, and emphysema are at a higher risk of lung infections and long-term damage.
It is not recommended to attempt mold removal without the proper equipment, cleaning supplies, and safety gear. When mold spores become suspended in the environment (air), anyone who enters the area can inhale them into their respiratory tract. Mold spores entering the respiratory tract are determined to be foreign invaders by the immune system. T cells will immediately start attacking the mold spores but there is no guarantee all of them will be eradicated.
